The upgraded Vue.js brings support for server-side rendering, streaming and component caching for fast renders. Also, there is lightweight DOM implementation from snabbdom library to power the rendering layer of the framework.
“The rendering layer is now much more powerful compared to v1.0. Template syntax of version 2.0 is compatible with 1.0,” said Evan You, principal developer at Vue, in a statement.
The Vue team has additionally updated libraries and tools including vue-router, vue core and vuex 2.0 to support the latest version. A migration guide and CLI helper are available to help existing Vue.js users.
