Nearly eight years ago Microsoft released the first public build, 0.8.1, of TypeScript, in November 2012. Since then it’s been used on many large-scale Web applications and in many apps running on the Electron cross-platform runtime. You’ve probably used one without realizing it, perhaps reading your e-mail on Outlook.com or working on some code in Visual Studio Code. One of Microsoft’s biggest open source projects, it’s led the way for the open sourcing of .NET and much of the current open design and development model used across the company. Now the latest version has been released, Version 4.0, with a significant number of improvements and new features.
Microsoft’s philosophy with TypeScript has been to avoid breaking changes, so existing TypeScript applications can be transpiled with the new TypeScript tooling. All you need to do is upgrade using NuGet or npm to use it in any development environment that supports TypeScript. Microsoft offers deep integration in Visual Studio with a TypeScript 4.0 plug-in in the Visual Studio Marketplace that adds support for in-editor debugging and a command line compiler.
If you’re using Visual Studio Code you automatically get support for the newest release in an upcoming update, as it ships with a recent stable version. If you want the new TypeScript right away, you can either download an Insider Build of Visual Studio Code, switch to the nightly build of TypeScript from the Code command line, or add an updated TypeScript version number to your code and switch the workspace version in use.
This last approach might be your best option, as it lets you keep TypeScript 4.0 code separate from other versions you might need to maintain before upgrading. You may need to download an updated language server definition using npm and update your TypeScript user settings if you intend to make TypeScript 4.0 your default.
