Just in time for the holidays, this is primarily a bug fix release that delivers critical fixes to our Angular and TypeScript tooling, and adds some usability fixes to the Inline Search. A critical crash some users experienced on macOS High Sierra has also been fixed.
Included in this release:
- Angular & TypeScript
- macOS High Sierra
Angular & TypeScript
Several fixes have been made in the content assist area – bugs around missing types, case sensitivity, and ordering have been fixed, for a much more reliable and robust assisted coding experience.
The Problems / Markers view would report incorrect line numbers when it came to TypeScript validation, this has been addressed.
In localized code, in some cases, users would experience various failures around our Angular support – this has been fixed.
Bugs around the use of quick-fixes for unused imports have been fixed, stay tuned for further enhancements that make dealing with modules easier in future releases.
If you have TypeScript project, but for some reason do not want support from our tooling, the facet can safely be removed from the project’s Project Facets property page.
Several usability fixes have been made to Inline Search – thanks to continued feedback from our users. The dialog will now automatically close to stay out of your way, the find next/previous actions will use the last searched string from the Inline Search, and we’ll reuse your search area when it makes sense to do so. Please keep your requests and suggestions coming.
We’ve begun adding a few fixes that are specific to Photon. If you were waiting for DevStyle support, do give it a spin and let us know what you think.
If you enjoy the DevStyle themes, both light and dark, but don’t like the new-style scrollbars, add
to your eclipse.ini file (in the -vmargs section) to go back to the native bars.
macOS High Sierra
If you are using a standalone install of Angular IDE, this release includes a fix that will prevent sporadic crashes of the IDE on High Sierra that some users were experiencing. If you are using the plugin versions of Webclipse or Angular IDE on a Neon base of Eclipse, please see this post for further details.
