The next version of TypeScript is out in beta, even though it's only a month since the previous release. TypeScript 1.8 has expanded JSX support and adds support for ChakraCore.
The improved JSX support means that TypeScript 1.8 can use custom JSX factories with the addition of a compiler flag. You can also use stateless functional components in TSX files, and JSX tags now have syntax highlighting.
"We found ChakraCore achieved significantly reduced compilation times, outperforming the previous version of Chakra that we were using by 5-20% and Node by 10-50%! Based on these improvements, we have switched to using ChakraCore when possible."
Other improvements to TypeScript 1.8 include features such as F-Bounded polymorphism and string literal types.
TypeScript 1.8 beta is available for Visual Studio 2015, NuGet, npm, and on Github.
