Ember.js 2.0 released
Version 2.0 of Ember, the JavaScript Web application framework, is a nontraditional 2.0 release in that instead of adding new features, it primarily removes deprecated ones.

Ember.js 2.0 is what its developers are calling a “garbage collection” release, aligning Ember with JavaScript and ECMAScript 6, and moving more toward modules and a more stable codebase. The release removes several deprecated APIs such as Views, ReduceComputed and ArrayComputed, context shifting in templates, IE8 support, and legacy handlebars helpers. The full release notes are available here.
