Meteor's support of more frameworks expands options for developers, noted Lou Sacco, principal engineer at Qualcomm, which has used Meteor to develop an expense approval application. "It'll mean, from my point of view, is the fact that we can leverage some of those UI frameworks that have pre-built components," like Angular, he said. Meteor, Sacco said, enables Qualcomm to push updates to its application to multiple users without them having to specifically access it.
Also in version 1.2, Meteor supports a pipeline for using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) preprocessors, such as Less. Mobile development support now features updated versions of the Apache Cordova packages, for building native applications via Web technologies. Performance also is being improved in the upgrade.
