Google continues to enhance Angular which led to the creation of numerous versions in a span of ďŹ ve years. With its rapid growth, the latest version has become one of the most widely used frameworks with over a million developers using it. The 8.0.0 release of Angular is here! This is a major release spanning the entire platform, such as framework, Angular Material, and the CLI with 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.


New Angular 8.0 Features

One key element of Custom Web Application Development Services is building web applications compatible with the majority of browsers. JavaScript has witnessed exponential evolution. However, in spite of new features being introduced, not all browsers are updated with support for new features at the same pace. Legacy (ES5) and modern (ES2015+) will now be included in the Command Line Interface (CLI) as part of the build process. Differential loading is a strategy allowing the CLI build two separate bundles according to deployed application. Modern bundle contains modern syntax leverages built-in support in modern browsers, ships less.


Angular Router Backwards Compatibility Latest version of Angular ensures backward compatibility. This means the latest version will still work with older versions of the framework, making it easier to migrate and transition to the newest Angular version. By allowing lazy loading on parts of AngularJS apps using $route APIs, it simpliďŹ es the upgrade and transferring of large projects. Ivy Rendering Engine The most important features of Angular 8 is IVY render engine. Google introduced a preview version of Ivy with the objective to receive feedback from the Angular Developer community related to Ivy. It is currently in the production environment right now. Ivy is the new and latest Angular Compiler as well as a tool serving as a new rendering pipeline. Generates signiďŹ cantly small bundles and can perform incremental compilation in simple manner.


Bazel Support In Angular 8, Google introduced another build tool called Bazel as open source. This tool has been used at Google internally since long time. Bazel for Angular 8 is yet not ready and is introduced as an opt-in option. Expected to be included in the Angular CLI in version 9, Bazel offers several features. Faster build takes time (while ďŹ rst build is time-consuming the concurrent builds take less time). Use for incremental build and deploy only what has been changed rather than change the entire app. Eject the Bazel ďŹ le which is normally hidden.

For most developers, one command should take care of this update: ng update @angular/cli @angular/core Conclusion Angular 8 aims to make the lives of web developers easy and smooth. These new features and updates aim to make Angular a robust development platform.
