- “The current thinking is, why don't we just not have mutations and allow updates to state to happen in an action?” — @EnjoyTheVueCast [0:03:41]
- “Dare I say, this almost feels like mixins, but make it name-spaced. You’re just rolling all the stuff in. It feels cleaner somehow.” — @EnjoyTheVueCast [0:15:58]
- “This whole thing feels very exciting in a very weird way. Because I feel I'm more familiar with this non-existent Vuex 5 than I am with the existing Vuex 3 that I've been using for the past few years.” — @EnjoyTheVueCast [0:28:43]
- “This is a really, really big change in how things work” — @EnjoyTheVueCast [0:36:11]
