Just an observation, didn’t know where to add this since it is not really an issue. The zipped bundle of my code in 1.8.2 is 10MB larger than 1.8.1.

I hope this is the server bundle you are talking about :sweat_smile:

That is 10x my client bundle that we are working so hard to keep small than 1mb :sweat_smile:

My client bundle is so small that browsers don’t even pick on it. I see a blank page :rofl::joy: It looks like we did a great job there…

(picking up from some facepalming after I had forgotten to actually execute metor update --release 1.8.2)

I tried the new Typescript support, but it doesn’t feel quite ready. I got a module loading error for the “mem” package (no idea on how to resolve) but the killer for me is that even when I introduce type errors in the code, the command line compiler (meteor run) doesn’t show these. Maybe I forgot to pass a flag or something.

Hi guys, please try 1.8.2 out and provide feedbacks in the PR then we can recommend it to everybody early next week.

I can’t update meteor update on global in my PC.
It still show The latest version of Meteor, 1.8.1, is already installed on this computer

Had the same issue as @theara, but I was able to update by specifying meteor update --release 1.8.2

But could update on meteor project.

Have any guide to use such as:

import { Mongo } from 'meteor/mongo';

export interface Link {
  _id?: string;
  title: string;
  url: string;
  createdAt: Date;
}

export const Links = new Mongo.Collection<Link>('links');

Hello, this is not an issue, Meteor has a system to recommend automatically or not a release, 1.8.2 is already published but not recommended automatically yet, we are probably changed to recommended in the next days.
