Angular 8: Two new Bazel features in Angular 8.0.0-beta.8

The Angular developer releases are becoming denser. In the beta 8 for Angular 8 four feature enhancements were made in addition to three bugfixes.

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.

Angular 8: The beta releases

Update from March 14, 2019

In Beta 8, three bugfixes were made:

  1. bazel: A missing binary path for api-extractor has been added ( #29202 ) ( df354d1 )
  2. bazel: ng build should produce a prod bundle ( #29136 ) ( 14ce8a9 )
  3. compiler: Checking if a template has been updated before output ( #29041 ) ( c7e4931 )

In addition, the Angular team has implemented two new features for the Bazel component. On the one hand, the command line ng build –leaveBazelFilesOnDisk added. On the other hand, the Bazel Builder has been modified to copy the Bazel WORKSPACE and BUILD.bazel files to the root directory of a project before a Bazel call. This should let Bazel Files hide from the users.

Details on the changes can be found in the release notes .
