Now that Angular v8 is here, it’s time to embark on a new journey: towards the next release! It’s never too soon to look forward to the future, and we are already watching for Angular v9. What’s new? This week’s release candidate brings us even closer to the final version! 9.0.0-rc.6 has been released.

 

Although the final release is still missing in action, we are on the final stretch as the sixth release candidate for Angular 9 has arrived – 9.0.0-rc.6. The bug fixes are still coming thick and fast, but we’re noticing that the list of changes for rc.5 and rc.6 are slightly shorter that previous ones, so perhaps that’s a sign that we might get a little present before the holidays after all! We’re keeping our fingers crossed that Angular 9 turns up in our stocking one of these days.

In the meantime, to apologize for the fact we were too busy to catch Angular 9.0.0-rc.5, we’ve published a video from our International JavaScript Conference so you can get an extra dose of Angular today: The Future of Angular and your Architectures with Ivy. Enjoy!

Here’s the complete list of changes, as seen on the changelog.

Release candidate stage

Angular updated their changelog on GitHub and now we are one step closer to the release of Angular 9. The time has come and we are officially in the release candidate stage!

Check out the Updating to Angular Version 9 guide.

From the updating guide, be aware of the breaking changes and deprecations that come with v9.

Breaking changes

  • Angular v9 will compile with Ivy as the default rendering engine. View the Ivy compatibility guide for information on debugging errors, and some potential changes you may see. Ivy is (mostly) backward-compatible with the previous rendering engine, however, some applications will need to be manually updated.
  • If you are using Typescript 3.4 or 3.5, you must update to Typescript 3.6.
  • tslib now listed as a peer dependency rather than a direct dependency. If you do not use the CLI, you will have to manually install tslib via  yarn

Deprecations

The following APIs are deprecated in v9.

BREAKING CHANGES

  • ivy: This commit removes the public export of hasBeenProcessed().

Now, we embark on a new journey: towards Angular v9! Let’s follow the latest changes and additions. Head on over to the changelog on GitHub to keep track of the news.

Angular 8.1.0 beta is already here, just days after v8 arrived. It includes an array of bug fixes and six new features.

Hi Vladimir, nope! We’ve just been busy. Even though Angular 9 has been a long time coming, we’re not going to give up now that we’re so close!

What a poor kind of journalism! Copying release notes from GitHub and republish them without any kind of editorial work is just poor.
