Feathers 2.0 BETA

After many months of hard work, I am proud to present Feathers 2.0 BETA. This is the first major update to Feathers since 1.0. I’ve been listening carefully to community feedback, and I’ve tried to focus on improving the most common pain points. If all went well, you’ll need to write less boilerplate code and you can get started easier with better defaults.
