i'm writing an angular+require+karma app, and ported it to 0.9.0 with very minor difficulties. big problem with performance however, very unreliable (unusable) with projects that span multiple files and reference multiple .d.ts files

Generics are awesome. It's already helping me clean up so much nasty code. I haven't run into a lot of compile-time bugs, but there are still a lot - a LOT - of design-time bugs in the Visual Studio language service. And compilation is still at least an order of magnitude slower than it was with 0.8.3.

Great to see generics, but please make compile time fast again and make the Visual Studio Plugin work better

Typescript 0.8 was great and the new version is even better. I honestly believe that this language is just what the web needs: an improved javascript with traditional oop and type annotations. The fantastic tools allow for great productivity. Forget dart and coffeescript, this is the way to go.

So far, I love the generics system. Despite difficulties in finding solutions to my problems, despite support for generics in static methods, or constraints (to my knowledge), and even with the known compiler problems, it's still fun to develop in.
