Angular 8 is still in beta. Shortly after Beta 12, the next update has been released: Angular 8 – Beta 13 fixes three bugs. One of them is relevant for anyone who wants to work with the current version of TypeScript.
The release cycle of Angular provides for a new major release every six months. That works better, but sometimes not so good. At Angular 7 the release came on time in October. Thus, Angular 8 would have to follow in April or May 2019. Until then, it continues first with minor releases of Angular 7 and then the beta versions of Angular 8.
