  • Lots of exploration on how we want to handle observables in the new platform. We’ve using RxJS internally, but don’t want to expose that directly in the plugin api (as we don’t want to expose too many dependencies directly). We’ve got a PR out exploring a way of using native JavaScript observbles instead of RxJS, but we still haven’t made a decision.
  • We’ve got a PR out for running the new and the old platform at the same time. Aleh is working on adding more tests now, and we’re hoping to get it through a final review very soon.
  • Cleaned up and simplified our Babel setup. We’ve now got a `babel-preset` and a `babel-register` that are more obvious than the old setup we had.
