Angular version 4.3 has been released. This is a minor release following our announced adoption of Semantic Versioning, meaning that it contains no breaking changes and that it is a drop-in replacement for 4.x.x.
- We are introducing HttpClient, a smaller, easier to use, and more powerful library for making HTTP Requests. Learn more about it from our docs
- New router life cycle events for Guards and Resolvers. Four new events: GuardsCheckStart, GuardsCheckEnd, ResolveStart, ResolveEnd join the existing set of life cycle event such as NavigationStart
- Conditionally disable animations via a new attribute, [@.disabled]
- Support for the emulated /deep/ CSS Selector (the Shadow-Piercing descendant combinator aka >>>) has been deprecated to match browser implementations and Chrome’s intent to remove. ::ng-deep has been added to provide a temporary workaround for developers currently using this feature.
For the complete list of features and bugfixes please see the changelog.
