The day is finally here, and we are not just talking about our release — Angular 4 is out! Earlier this year we were discussing some of the advantages of Angular 4 like the fact that it comes with better tools, requires 25% less code due to a better compilation, will get updates every 6 months and many others benefits.  The long wait is over — it’s here now!

What does it mean for us to add Angular 4 to this release?

upgrade-ng4-wizardUpgrade to 4 just by clicking the “Upgrade action” button on the toolbar, which will let you easily use the latest tools with your Angular 2 projects. It’s a simple process: our upgrade wizard will also upgrade a lot of configuration files, as well as fix some of your code, if necessary. 

Documentation and inline Angular templates have also been improved. Documentation rendering is capable of handling both JSdoc and markdown-based documentation. Besides, support for inline templates has been improved with added content assist support.

Initial support for TypeScript 2.2 has also been added in this release, so if you are working on this version of TypeScript, you will see new quick fixes available for unused variables, unimplemented abstract methods, etc. We are working on new plugins, so stay tuned because those are coming soon!

ddpreferencesLast but not least, Darkest Dark. We have been getting an overwhelming amount of feedback, both on what makes it awesome and what could make it even better. We are working on these suggestions! One thing we have already done is that In this release you can customize your editor colors easily!

Preferences > General > Appearance > Darkest Dark, and select the editor colors you prefer.

Other miscellaneous and key fixes for Angular, TypeScript & Darkest Dark can be found in our delivery log.
