Welcome to the 3rd issue of these weeks in dev-tools! It's been a while since the last issue, sorry. To make up for it, there is a lot this time around.
These Weeks in Dev-Tools will keep you up to date with all the exciting dev tools news. We plan to have a new issue every few weeks. If you have any news you'd like us to report, please comment on the tracking issue.
