AngularJS releases 1.3 update and 1.4 beta
Alongside numerous bugfixes, the latest changes to AngularJS have begun implementing a simpler new approach to ngRepeat sorting.
AngularJS 1.3.10 and 1.4.0-beta.1
AngularJS 1.3.10 contains numerous bugfixes that improve animation, as well as forms that sometimes led to a memory leak in combination with the $setValidity component. A fix in the ngController allows you to use constructor functions as controllers. At the same time, 1.3.10 makes it possible to apply class directives to SVG elements.
AngularJS has also made available the second beta of its forthcoming major release. Alongside numerous bugfixes from version 1.3.10, this release contains the latest configuration parameters in the header functions of $http components and a breaking change to ngRepeat.
