KVision 3.17.0 is released (with IR backend support)

KVision is an open source web framework created for Kotlin/JS. It allows developers to build modern web applications with the Kotlin language.

I have released KVision 3.17.0, the first version of the framework supporting new Kotlin/JS IR compiler backend. All artifacts are published in “both” mode, so you can now choose the legacy or the IR compiler for your applications.

All examples, both frontend and fullstack, have been tested and are fully compatible with new backend.

However, note that we are still impatiently waiting for Kotlin 1.4.30, which will fix important bug and make KVision really usable with IR. Until then, the legacy backend is still the one to be used by default.

For more details about this release see the changelog.

As always, any feedback is appreciated!
