It turns out, time has been good to Meteor as they’ve just released 0.5.7 which brings scaling enhancements, a new DDP version and plenty of bug fixes and optimisations. The developers have also just held a DevShop, a collaboration of teams and individuals who are working hard on improving and demonstrating the power & flexibiltiy of their system.
Since the blog post, there have been dozens of brilliant tutorials and articles about Meteor JS; here are a few of my favourite:
- Cloudy With a Chance of Meteor.js
- Single Page Web Apps with Meteor.js
- Learn Meteor Fundamentals and Best Practices
- Introduction to Realtime Web with Meteor and Node.js
- Meteor.js Resources
When asked when 1.0 will be out, they simply state that it will be “more than a month, less than a year”. Even more tantilisingly, they’ve released the roadmap of where they hope to be prior, during and post-1.0 in terms of functionality; bugs and feature enhancements which add to the core funtionality of an otherwise already stable product.
