At last! The wait is finally over! The latest version of Angular is out! Angular 7 is finally here, packed with exciting new features and improvements that have been promising to make the wait worthwhile!
In fact, Prisom Technology, as a prominent software development company, are extra-excited about this version since it’s a major release that implements a good number of new features, changes, and performance improvements throughout the entire Angular platform.
- CLI prompts
The CLI prompts have been updated to v7.0.2 with new features. For instance, it will now prompt users when typing commands like @angular/material, ng-new, and ng-add to help them discover the in-built SCSS support, routing, and more.
- Angular material & component dev kit (CDK)
The Angular 7 introduced minor visual updates and improvements in Material Design that earlier received a major update this year only. Virtual scrolling, large lists of data, dynamic loading and unloading of parts of the DOM also were the part of improvements in CDK and Angular Material.
3. Drag & drop
The new drag-drop module basically provides a better way to easily create drag & drop interfaces, which is backed by sorting within a list, support for free dragging, animations, custom drag handles, transferring items between lists, previews, and placeholders
4. Virtual scrolling
Like mentioned earlier, the new Virtual Scrolling in Angular 7 basically loads and unloads items from the DOM depending upon visible parts of lists, resulting into a much faster experience for users having huge scrollable lists.
- Application performance improvements
The development team at Google have always focused on the performance improvements, and while doing so, they recently found that most of the developers were using reflect-metadata in their production, which actually was only required in the development.
Angular 7 seems a better solution. The Angular development team has certainly done a great job in making the Angular platform better. If you are planning to implement Angular in your own project, whether mobile or web, we recommend to hire AngularJS developer who is well-versed with the framework.
