Announcing TypeScript 2.8

App Center Team

TypeScript 2.8 is here and brings a few features that we think you’ll love unconditionally!

If you’re not familiar with TypeScript, it’s a language that adds optional static types to JavaScript. Those static types help make guarantees about your code to avoid typos and other silly errors. They can also help provide nice things like code completions and easier project navigation thanks to tooling built around those types. When your code is run through the TypeScript compiler, you’re left with clean, readable, and standards-compliant JavaScript code, potentially rewritten to support much older browsers that only support ECMAScript 5 or even ECMAScript 3.
