Microsoft Releases TypeScript 3.7

Dynamics 365 New Enhancements

Microsoft recently announced the release of TypeScript 3.7. It comes with features such as optional chaining, assertion functions, and more.


Critical features of TypeScript 3.7 include:

  1. Nullish Coalescing: In this ECMAScript feature, the operator (??) works as a fallback way to a default value when dealing with null or undefined.
  2. Optional Chaining: It allows you to write a code where you can stop running some expressions running into a null or undefined, instantly. Moreover, it includes two other operations; 1) Optional element access, which allows you to access non-identifier properties, and 2) Optional call, which enables you to call null or undefined expressions conditionally.
  3. Assertion Functions: They are a specific set of functions, which throw an error when an unexpected change happens. A new concept, “Assertion Signatures,” introduced in TypeScript 3.7, follows this model. It sends a message when a specific variable or property type changes from its checked condition.
  4. -declaration and –allowJs: The –declaration tag allows you to generate .d.ts files from the TypeScript source files. It eliminates re-checking of the original codebase while allowing the type-check of the code against other projects. Besides, it enables you to interoperate Typescript code with existing JavaScript libraries.


A few other notable features of TypeScript 3.7:

  • Availability of more recursive type aliases
  • Allowing to enable an enhanced emit mode
  • Build-free editing with project references
  • Uncalled function checks
  • Website and playground updates and breaking changes

Magento has officially announced that it will stop supporting the Magento 1-based systems from June 2020. It will affect over 2 Million online stores, which are still running on the Magento 1.x platform.


If you have an online store based on this platform, then it is the time to migrate to Magento 2.x. You can take the help of an experienced Magento migration expert to upgrade your eCommerce store to Magento 2.x and continue protecting your site from security attacks.
