Happy New Year and Happy New Aurelia!

The year of 2020 was a rough year for a lot of people, including the Aurelia core team. But as we enter 2021 we look forward not only to a better year, but to a better Aurelia because Aurelia 2 is just around the corner!

We’ve got the pieces in place now and are currently working on doing some test migrations of v1 apps to v2 and writing docs. As soon as we’re sure we can provide a smooth migration experience – and that looks to be very soon – we’re going to officially release the alpha version.

We know that many of you have been looking forward to trying out v2 almost as much as you love v1. We have too. And we’re almost there now. We’ve really appreciated your patience so far and we’ll see you soon in a solid and smooth Aurelia 2 alpha.

Thanks and talk to you again soon!

I know I am biased, but I have been using Aurelia 2 on and off for the better part of a year. Seeing it evolve into what it is now, for an alpha, this thing impresses the pants off of me. Not only is the development experience familiar to those who worked with v1, but it is also better and a lot more powerful this time around.

I highly implore everyone to dig in and try out the new router, specifically the direct router which takes a zero-configuration convention approach to routing. The same Aurelia everyone knows and loves is still there, but there is so much more power if you want it (the new lifecycles are awesome). Gone is the task queue and there is also now native support for Shadow DOM as well as support for CSS Modules out-of-the-box.


I recommend use continuous delivery, like every 1 ou 2 months release something even if is small, instead of every month promise a delivery in the next and then delay to another time.
I know that it’s alot of work, is a very complete framework, but is also causes uncertainty.


Is there any docs or links to articles about the new router available?

I think you’re talking about all these dev releases that are generated via CI…
