Angular 2.3.0 Now Available

December 8th, 2016

Angular version 2.3.0 - is now available. This is a minor release following our announced adoption of Semantic Versioning, meaning that it contains no breaking changes and that it is be a drop-in replacement for 2.x.x. This is the final minor release for 2.x.
What's new?
  • We're now releasing the first version of the Angular Language Service. This is a service that is designed to integrate with IDEs and provide error checking and type completion within Angular Templates. We've built this service independent of editor, but are releasing an initial set of bindings for VS Code.
  • Developers can now take advantage of object inheritance for components. Share or simplify component functionality by inheriting from a parent component.
  • The latest release of zone.js includes improved stack traces. You should see stack traces that are shorter and are zone-aware:
  • 2.2.x Stack Trace: Error.spec.js:53 Error: Inside at ZoneAwareError (zone.js:652) at insideRun (Error.spec.js:31) at ZoneDelegate.invoke (zone.js:216) at (zone.js:100) at testFn (Error.spec.js:29) at ZoneDelegate.invoke (zone.js:216) at (zone.js:100) at Object.eval (Error.spec.js:19)
  • 2.3.0 Stack Trace: Error.spec.js:54 Error: Inside [InnerZone] at insideRun (Error.spec.js:31) [InnerZone] at (zone.js:100) [<root> => InnerZone] at testFn (Error.spec.js:29) [<root>] at (zone.js:100) [ProxyZone => <root>] at Object.eval (Error.spec.js:19) [ProxyZone]
