In April, we focused mostly on completing migration activities, like the migration guide and other related
tasks like running existing tests in a LoopBack 3 application after composing it within a LoopBack 4 application. But, that didn't stop us from exploring and adding some cool features.
We now have a new Express package, which enables modeling Express middleware functions as an interceptor chain. Also it is possible now to break a complex application into much smaller components and wire them in a main application. You can find more details on thsese below in
Exploring new territories.
Also our community has published many LoopBack 4 extensions in NPM. Many of these extensions are addressing a variety of usecases like pub-sub messaging, mqtt, graphql, rate-limiting, authentication, logging, AWS cloud integration, etc. The extensibility of LoopBack in real time use cases are even surprising us and the possibilities seems to be endless.
