Angular 8 Final version was released. The new version comes with many features. Ivy can now be tested, Bazel too.
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.
Angular 8 Final released
Angular 8 final version is here. As announced, the new version was released in May. Included are previews of Ivy and Bazel, which can be activated manually. Done are the features but not yet, but still in the test phase. Another new feature is the default Differential Loading feature, which creates separate bundles for modern and legacy browsers. There are also innovations in the integration of the Web Worker in the build process of Angular. Upgrades were working on the routing. Manfred Steyer, Trusted Collaborator in the official Angular team, gives an overview of the new features: Angular 8 is here: Ivy-Preview, Service Worker and Differential Loading – these are the new features.
