    Can we use Ionic 2 for production for small projects right now? Tentatively when Ionic 2 stable version can be expected, You people are really doing great job. Awaiting for Sliding tabs now.

      We are targeting an RC release mid-June. As far as choosing Ionic 1 or 2, I personally would use 2 because A) it’s much faster, B) Typescript!, and C) It’s easier to use, but it comes down to the timeline of the project and the willingness to cope with any potential API changes. In the event of an API change, we will always provide instructions to make upgrading easy, but there is some work involved. You really can’t go wrong either way IMO.

        Is it really much faster? Where i can find some beenchmarks of ionic 1 vs ionic 2?

        • danbucholtz

          Ionic 2 is basically a thin wrapper around Angular 2 right now, so it will see all of the speed improvements that Angular 2 brings to the table. I don’t have the numbers handy, but Brad Green from Google has discussed some very impressive performance numbers. I believe he has mentioned that rendering performance is ~5x better typically, but don’t quote me on that :). We’re working on making things like Web Workers easy to use to get even better performance. Basically, application performance will be much better. Beyond that, developer productivity will be much higher we think due to things like Typescript and improved architecture.

            Learning the new version of JS and TypeScript as we speak to use on Ionic 2 later. Hope SQLite database support is good on Ionic 2 because i will need it heavily on my app.
            Thanks for the explanation.

      I use it for production with beta7 ..i dare to take a risk because ionic 2 future is so bright 😀

    Hi, to update our setup to this latest beta we just run “npm install -g [email protected]”? thanks!

    • Brandy Carney

      That command updates the CLI. To update to the latest version of the framework you can use “npm install –save [email protected]” in your project folder. Please see the documentation here: 🙂

        I’d suggest adding that update command to the upgrade docs, they cover everything except how to actually update to beta8 🙂

        • Brandy Carney

          Done. Thanks! 🙂

      • Gustavo

        perfect, thank you for the clarification

  • Pat Hartl

    Great work guys! Sad to not see split panes this time around, but I can’t wait! 🙂

  • Young Park

    upgrading now

  • Dave Shirman

    Definitely a strange rendering bug introduced with this version: my submit button is no longer scrollable into view on this modal page! See just the top of it in iOS and none on Android. Both screens scrolled as far as possible.

    • Mateo Tibaquirá Palacios

      Indeed, there are some CSS changes that needs sync too or a complete rework depending our custom code.

      • Dave Shirman

        I have no custom css at all. I followed the update steps in the docs. Did you update the css additionally?

        • Mateo Tibaquirá Palacios

          Ah, I didn’t see the screenshot before, gotta open an issue to report it 🙂

          • Dave Shirman

            Way ahead of you, cheers.

  • Matt

    Upgraded quickly and mostly without incident, thanks for the nice documentation!

  • Dave Shirman

    Guys, there is definitely a problem with your css not taking into account the ion-toolbar height when rendering a modal form.

      Did you file a bug report?

      • Dave Shirman

        I have done just now. Strange thing is that it doesn’t reproduce in the plunkr. This is a modal page with nothing special on it. Very strange.

  • Bob Myers

    How do I access the value of `prodMode` from within the application if I need to? It doesn’t seem to be exposed on `App`.

  • Christrer

    Having a hard time finding third party library .js file with ionic 2, I’m getting “module not found”. All though I have installed it by typing “npm install progressbar.js”. My home.ts has the correct import statement: “import * as ProgressBar from ‘progressbar.js’;”, and the progressbar.js folder is under node_modules folder.
