    VitePress is a Static Site Generator (SSG) designed for building fast, content-centric websites. In a nutshell, VitePress takes your source content written in Markdown, applies a theme to it, and generates static HTML pages that can be easily deployed anywhere.

    Announcing Vue 3.4

    Today we're excited to announce the release of Vue 3.4 "πŸ€ Slam Dunk"!

    This release includes some substantial internal improvements - most notably a rewritten template parser that is 2x faster, and a refactored reactivity system that makes effect triggering more accurate and efficient. It also packs a number of quality-of-life API improvements, including the stabilization of defineModel and a new same-name shorthand when binding props.

    This post provides an overview of the highlighted features in 3.4. For the full list of changes, please consult the full changelog on GitHub.

    Vue 2 is Approaching End Of Life

    With 2024 almost upon us, we would like to take this opportunity to remind the Vue community that Vue 2 will reach End of Life (EOL) on December 31st, 2023.

    Vue 2.0 was released more than 7 years ago in 2016. It was a major milestone in Vue's journey of becoming a mainstream framework. Many current Vue users started using Vue during the Vue 2 era, and many great things have been built with it.

    However, active maintenance of two major versions in parallel isn't sustainable for us. As Vue 3 and its ecosystem have matured, it is time for the team to move on and focus our energy on the latest major version.

    Announcing Vue 3.3

    Today we're excited to announce the release of Vue 3.3 "Rurouni Kenshin"!

    This release is focused on developer experience improvements - in particular, SFC <script setup> usage with TypeScript. Together with the 1.6 release of Vue Language Tools (previously known as Volar), we have resolved many long-standing pain points when using Vue with TypeScript.

    This post provides an overview of the highlighted features in 3.3. For the full list of changes, please consult the full changelog on GitHub.

    Volar: a New Beginning

    Most users of Volar know it as the official Vue.js VSCode extension. It started as a personal project when the official recommendation was still Vetur, and over time got adopted as the new official extension due to improved architecture and performance.

    As a project created to improve the quality of life for developers, we spent over two years before reaching 1.0, and have been continuously shipping stability improvements.

    But we've still got more work to do, and there are exciting plans for 2023.
