The calm before the awesome storm? Rob and the rest of the Aurelia team have put out a pre-beta release which is action packed with a heap of new features, API refinements and tonnes of bug fixes.
The reason for a pre-beta is due to the fact Aurelia relies on Babel for its tooling and the recent release of Babel broke some things in Aurelia, so while those issues are being addressed the team wanted to put out a release with some of the latest bugfixes and additions to the framework.
This is single-handedly one of the biggest and best Aurelia releases yet. Binding behaviours, override scope, the repeater now uses a strategy pattern which means issues working with arrays that have value converters are now solved.

I think one of the things I am really excited about is Binding Behaviours. I will have a blog post up shortly explaining how you can leverage them to do really awesome things.
There are too many things to list and talk about, so check out the above linked blog post and bring on the beta release.
