TypeScript 3.5 RC Fixes Introduced Bug that Caused Slowness 'Explosion'
Microsoft shipped TypeScript 3.5 RC, a release candidate that fixes a type-checking bug the dev team introduced in version 3.4, which caused a huge slowdown in build times and other performance.
In the new TypeScript 3.5 RC, affected operations are now even faster than they were in v3.3.
In addition to the bug fix and other speed improvements, Rosenwasser summed up other 3.5 changes thusly:
As the final TypeScript 3.5 is expected to ship at the end of this month, developers have a short time to put the RC through its paces and provide feedback to the dev team. Rosenwasser previously indicated developers can report problems by filing an issue on GitHub.
As for future plans, he pointed to the TypeScript 3.5 Iteration Plan and the roadmap.
