The long awaited update to Elm is out, 0.17. This release features a huge simplification of aspects which people (ok, me) found confusing, making it much easier to wire together components. Elm seems to be moving towards a more Erlang like experience for concurrency, which isn’t a bad thing :)
Apart from the blog post introducing it here are a few other places detailing the changes you might need to make to migrate from older versions:
- Migrating from Elm 0.16 to 0.17 - from StartApp (Claudia will be following up with more posts for folks who need more than the StartApp stuff).
- Migrating signal usage from Elm 0.16 to 0.17.
Talk on 0.17
I’ll also be giving an introduction to 0.17 in the next Dublin Elm Meetup on Tuesday May 24th 2016. I’ll basically be giving an introduction to Elm with Signals and Mailboxes removed (yay! The confusing bits! No more foldp!).
