IoT: .NET Gadgeteer (netduino)

.NET Gadgeteer - Microsoft Research
".NET Gadgeteer was created by researchers at Microsoft as an internal prototyping tool, but because of external interest, particualrly from educators and hobbyists, we turned it into open source software which now has a vibrant hardware ecosystem from multiple manufacturers.

The platform is built on the .NET Micro Framework, which allows small devices to be programmed in the C# language and make use of Visual Studio’s programming and debugging tools."

AngularJS 1.4

AngularJS 1.4 Announced, More to Come in 2015 @ InfoQ

"Work on AngularJS 1.4 has begun. After announcing their plans for version 2.0, the team has decided to advance version 1.x with new features and continue active development on it throughout 2015.

the team decided to limit the scope of version 1.4 in order to release it by ng-conf, the AngularJS focused conference on March 5, 2015. "I'd rather have a smaller release and get it done by ng-conf
1.4 will have some breaking changes for some developers."

So 1.3, 1.4, 2.0, all have breaking changes. With JavaScript it is all constant change :)
