The 8.0.0 release of Angular is here! This is a major release spanning the entire platform, including the framework, Angular Material, and the CLI with synchronized major versions. This release improves application startup time on modern browsers, provides new APIs for tapping into the CLI, and aligns Angular to the ecosystem and more web standards.
Visit update.angular.io for detailed information and guidance. For most developers, one command should take care of this update:
ng update @angular/cli @angular/core
If you use
ng update, we update your
tsconfig.jsonfor you to take advantage of this. Our CLI looks at the
target JS level in your
tsconfig.json to determine whether or not to take advantage of Differential Loading.
