Lots of notable releases, community projects, and technical content was released in the DoneJS community last month! This post outlines some of the highlights from December 2016.

Notable releases

Right at the start of the month, we released the new CanJS site. It features a brand new design with lots of new documentation, technical guides, and more!

Later in the month, we announced the release of CanJS 3 and StealJS 1! Check out those blog posts for more info about both projects.

We published a blog post on How to Upgrade a DoneJS Plugin to CanJS 3 and hosted a training on it too! If you’re migrating a project from CanJS 2.3 to 3, you’ll enjoy the improved Migration Guide; shout out to Curtis for providing notes from a migration he worked on.

We also hosted a training on how to use can-connect and can-set for real-time functionality.
