Angular 10 Now Available

Hey there,

Version 10.0.0 is here! This is a major release that spans the entire platform, including the framework, Angular Material, and the CLI. This release is smaller than typical; it has only been 4 months since we released version 9.0 of Angular.

How to update to version 10

Visit for detailed information and guidance. To have the best update experience,

Update to 10

ng update @angular/cli @angular/core
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

In order to update your global angular,

Warnings about CommonJS imports

Starting with version 10, we now warn you when your build pulls in one of these bundles. If you’ve started seeing these warnings for your dependencies, let your dependency know that you’d prefer an ECMAScript module (ESM) bundle.


Optional Stricter Settings

Version 10 offers a more strict project setup when you create a new workspace with ng new.

ng new --strict

Enabling this flag initializes your new project with a few new settings that improve maintainability, help you catch bugs ahead of time, and allow the CLI to perform advanced optimizations on your app. Specifically, the strict flag does the following:

  • Enables strict mode in TypeScript
  • Turns template type checking to Strict
  • Default bundle budgets have been reduced by ~75%
  • Configures linting rules to prevent declarations of type any
  • Configures your app as side-effect free to enable more advanced tree-shaking

For more lets hear it from the creators

I was among the first users of angular. The release of v2 has broken so many things that completely stopped me from upgrading at all. All Google softwares have issues with backward compatibility. In short, Google doesn't care. It can drop a project anytime it wants to, and releases new version that is basically another software. Lesson learned: use Google frameworks with caution. Do not rely on them for long term projects.

Soudns Fair. In this new update they have removed support for older browsers including IE 9, 10, and Internet Explorer Mobile.
