I was glad to hear that in http://emberjs.com/blog/2016/01/23/core-team-face-to-face-january-2016.html, a new patch release of Ember 1.12 that contained public alternatives to some private APIs might be released. While this is laudable, I am afraid it may not enough for our company.
I was asked by some people why I was still on Ember 1.12 at work, and what would help get us to 1.13. For our company, this has primarily been about:
- Ember Table is not yet compatible with 1.13, much less our fork of it.
- Lots of use of Ember List View (have to migrate to Ember Collections),
- Lots of view layer code accumulated
- Lots of array/item controllers
- Use of private APIs
- Upgrade fatigue
If anyone else is still on Ember 1.12 or lower, feel free to chime in on what it would take to get you guys to 1.13
