This week brought us release of Deno v0.3.0.

Biggest change is that instead of importing `deno` you should use `Deno` global variable. That way Deno specific code can still be used in browser by using simple condition. Make sure to update your code, because `deno` import will be deprecated soon.

Important changes:

  • Add Deno global namespace object (#1748)
  • Add window.location (#1761)
  • Add back typescript version number and add Deno.version object (#1788)
  • Add seek and implement Seeker on File (#1797)
  • Add Deno.execPath (#1743)
  • Add env option in (#1773)
  • Upgrade V8 to 7.4.158 (#1767)

Full list of changes can be found here.

Latest release for standard library is v0.2.11.

Note that HTTP server redesign was reverted to state from v0.2.10. You can chime in to discussion about HTTP implementation in #211
