During late 2016, AngularJS 1.6 was released, following which the Angular team shifted its focus to the launch of Angular series—a TypeScript counterpart of AngularJS. However, after the recent release of Angular 6, the team already has AngularJS 1.7 release in the pipeline.
But for some of us, our AngularJS app is still under works, and here the Angular team is coming up with new versions.
Now, it would’ve given me as crippling a feeling as it might be giving you to think of upgrading an app still in development.
AngularJS 1.7 will provide you with much-needed relief, as you won’t have to start from scratch. On July 1, 2018, it will be officially out with 3-year Long Term Support.
