Today Microsoft released the final version of TypeScript 2.0, adding new features and improvements. TypeScript is what Microsoft likes to calls “JavaScript that scales” – providing better performance and scalability for large applications, along with developer goodness of a typed language.

Here is a list of some of the new features found in TypeScript 2.0:

  • Simplified Declaration File (.d.ts) Acquisition
  • Non-nullable Types
  • Control Flow Analysis for Types
  • Easier Module Declarations
  • Async/Await down level support
  • Readonly Modifier

TypeScript’s future looks promising. In a blog post by the TypeScript team…

“Going forward, we will continue to work with our partners and the community to evolve TypeScript’s type system to allow users to further express JavaScript in a statically typed fashion. In addition, we will focus on enhancing the TypeScript language service and set of tooling features so that developer tools become smarter and further boost developer productivity.”

TypeScript 2.0 is available now to download with Visual Studio 2015 Update 3. You can also use npm to install TypeScript 2.0 by running the following command:

npm install –g typescript@2.0
