Hi everybody,

Briefly about the main events in the BEM world over the last 4 months with the beginning of the year.

Libraries news

  • RC of the next major release of bem-core — 4.0.0-rc.1. The main changes concerned the improvement of i-bem.js. If you are ready — you can check this release on your projects. The stable version will be released soon. Don't forget to tell us about all the detected bugs.
  • major version of bem-components 3.0.0 that works with bem-core 3.0.1. Despite the fact that the release is major, update should be painless.
  • bem-history 3.2.0. The main change is a support for bem-core 3.x in bower.json. And, of course, a few bug fixes included.
  • renamed the organization bem-incubtaror in bem-contrib. New name much better reflects the organization's mission. If you use (or develop) any packages, you should update the paths to the repository (some time github supports redirects automatically). You can use the user manual.
