    You guys are absolutely brilliant. This is by far the best framework I have ever used. Kudos and a really big thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  • Mark Broomfield

    A blog post with serious WOW factor. You guys sure have addressed some of the big ones in this release. Great work.

  • jasondu

    GOOD JOB ,think you ionic!

  • Stephen Adams

    Is there a way to update your version of Ionic you are using in a app to the latest version?

    • yesimahuman

      Right now it’s a manual process (copy and paste new files). Hopefully adding some tools to do that soon!

      • jimforcy

        Using this Yeoman generator was super helpful for me to be able to automate my updates: https://github.com/diegonetto/generator-ionic

        • Nirav Gandhi

          hey, i am using this generator and wish to update my ionic version. How did you do it? I tried following documentation and its just over writing some of my important files. Could you please list out the steps?

  • Andrea Belli

    So fast! Thank you guys!

  • Roberto De la Fuente

    Great work guys! Both the framework and its community are amazing.

  • Michel Habib

    Great News, can’t wait to upgrade to this version and try the collection repeat system

  • http://krrishd.github.io/blog Krish Dholakiya

    Just a quick idea for your showcase, you guys should use tinypng.org for the app screenshots so they don’t take as long to load

    • yesimahuman

      Good call! Thanks, will get that up there soon.

    Do you have any thoughts about Famo.us? Do you have any relationship?
    Thanks and great work!!

    • yesimahuman

      Sure. Famous is really impressive and fun. I’ve met a few of them and they are all great, smart people. We differ in where we think browsers are heading. We strongly believe the DOM is where developers want to and will increasingly build applications, and that browsers will continue to become faster and optimize for the app layout use case. We want to keep things standard. Famous sees a different future where we have a custom layout engine that just uses the browser for compositing. It’s great but it’s not the standard.

      I think it’s great for certain applications, but I think Ionic is a better fit for most data driven apps in terms of simplicity and speed of development, and also staying closer to what web developers already know and love, which is important when finding developers to work on your projects. Phones have gotten so much faster recently that Ionic apps feel perfectly native using normal browser features.

        I will say that – I picked up Ionic in a few hours and ran with it, while after 2 weeks I’m still trying to figure out how the hell to make a basic app in Famo.us

  • Deric Dominic

    Seriously …. You guys are awesome !! Ionic has the best framework ever… ! Get ready to get my hands dirty on it ๐Ÿ™‚

  • spex86

    Awesome work guys! I was at your presentation back at ng-conf and have been following your progress ever since. Just recently landed an app build, so now I’m damn excited to finally start using the framework. Thanks again and keep em’ coming!

    Wow, such a big and great update. Thanks and keep up the great work!

  • Alejandro Sanchez

    Amazing! Thanks for doing this! you’re awesome! Im very agree with Mark Broomfield, you solve most of the big problems everyone is dealing with, great job!

    bravo guys ๐Ÿ™‚

  • nghuuphuoc

    Awesome is only word I can say at the moment!

  • http://buzzknow.com Buzzknow

    Thanks a lot ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Palle Simonsen

    Much, much needed and appreciated. I can only repeat the other statements of praise in this blog.
    As an idea think about having both a very basic starter, as today, and a more advanced starter showcasing how to build out with a more scalable and maintanable division of concerns into templates, services etc. … you know ๐Ÿ™‚

  • https://www.nothing.ch/ Nothing Interactive

    Fantastic update. We’ll be using and testing this new release straight ahead in our ongoing project. Impressive progress.

  • http://www.renatovieira.net Renato Vieira

    Well, itยดs angular based, and the only one, so only that would be enough to convince me, keep up the great work…and thanks!

  • Prithumit Deb

    does ionic have support for windows phone? if not when can we expect that?

    thanks for the wonderful work ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love it! Thanks!

  • Alberto

    I tried Collection Repeat on samsung s2 and galaxy tab 7 and on tablet after few scroll all is blocked and all is slow as past. There is no performance improvements on old android devices.

  • biswarup dasgupta

    Hi,

    We are facing the viewport shrinking problem in our ionic app as you have described above. Is it possible to share a sample code to show what needs to be done in the ionic side when we receive the keyboard show/hide events?

    Thanks.

    Nice to see some improvements to the Clicking and Viewport. Only thing i’m wondering: how does it work on Windows Phone? Is it also supported? Cause is see you guys talking about iOS (which is basically the major influence for the GUI) and Android. I’ve done a few projects but clients nowadays also seem to want Windows Phone support. And of course i can do some customisation on that end but it really lacks in your docs and news updates. I know it doesn’t have a major community just yet and you would probably dump WP8.0 support once WP8.1 is there but still, the viewport is pretty irritating on WP too and the touch-events vs pointer-events is also a major issue these days. Now i can recommend this framework when we need a iOS/Android app but still won’t recommend if i need to support WP too. Not only because the interface is different (but i can customize the templates so it’s not that big of a deal) but because the viewport, click-events and debugging just isn’t optimal (hell, not even sub-optimal).

    One thing i often want in my apps is a fixed header/footer/sidebar which i can show/hide when i want. Currently the webview is often scrollable which breaks the thought about that. Now i can disable scrolling but that often breaks scrolling altogether. Does this update make it truely fixed without breaking scrolling in sub-divs?

    Another point i’d like to address is that having page-transitions is nice but currently you don’t have much control on showing what animations where. It would be nice to be able to set what transitions we want between what pages. This could be best set if we could use something like page-levels where Home is level 1, subpages are 2 and details of subpages are 3. Than if i go from level 1 to 2 i see a slide-left and from 3 to 2 is slide-right. But also if i’m going from 3 to 1. Anyways, having animations and touch-events based on those animations is kind of a hassle. So a implementation for handling touch-events would also be great. Currently tools like HammerJS and such aren’t really compatible with Windows Phone yet (not correctly)

    So any word on that?
    -Touche/Pointer-events
    -Fixed header/footer/sidebar without breaking scrolling?
    -WP8/8.1 support

    great job… fast click and the keyboard implementation is making our developers lives easier!

  • sidali

    great job , thanks from algeria

  • aks

  • Nirav Parsana

    Hi team,
    Thanks for an update.
    Still one of the most awaiting update is improving app starting time.
    Please provide solution as soon as possible.
    Thanks.
