It’s been an exciting release cycle for the NativeScript team. We just published our first official release in May and since then there has been an insane amount of community activity. There are now more than 4k stars on Github, over 300 issues, 260+ forum threads, and more than 20 plugins have been created by the community. Did I mentioned the new G+ NativeScript group? We are already working with the first companies to prepare their apps on the app stores. If you are working on an app - please let us know - we are eager to see what you are building!
NativeScript 1.1 bits are live and you can start using them immediately! If you are updating from 1.0 - please read the update instructions. With this release we delivered three new fundamental featurenpms for the NativeScript framework - support for npmmodules, support for native iOS libraries and the initial version of NativeScript plugins. We also delivered a number of enhancements and bug fixes to the core framework - NativeScript is now more stable and faster.
It is only two months after we released the first public version of NativeScript, but we got tons of positive feedback already on the work we have done so far. We got 3000 stars on GitHub, more than 1500 followers on twitter (@NativeScript) and our public NativeScript forum is quite popular these days. This help us a lot to validate that we are on the right track and we are working hard to meet the expectations. I hope that with each release you will feel more and more confident that NativeScript is the best choice for cross-platform mobile app development.
