AngularJS 1.3.0 Released

Date 2014/10/14 8:39:03 | Topic: Product News

After eight months of work, over two thousand commits, nineteen beta and six release candidates, AngularJS 1.3.0 has been finally release.

This release includes many notable new features:
* One-time bindings – by prefixing an expression with "::", it will only be interpolated once, and then no longer watched.
* ngAria – a new module that helps make custom components in Angular more accessible by default
* ngMessages – a new directive that simplifies writting and coordinating feedback for on form validity
* ngModelOptions – a directive that makes it easy to customize the behavior of bound models. For instance: debouncing,  getter-setter-style models, update-on-blur, and more.
* Strict DI – an option for finding places in your application that will not minify due to use of short-hand DI syntax


Included in this release are over four hundred bug fixes, and nearly one thousand documentation improvements. We also improved the APIs around custom form controls and animations to make them more clear and easier to use.

1.3.0 has substantial performance improvements that reduce memory consumption, increase the speed of common DOM operations, and improve overall latency of Angular apps. You can take a look at the benchmarks in the AngularJS source code on GitHub for more information. You can read the exhaustive list of changes in our changelog on GitHub.

By popular demand, AngularJS now officially has packages published to npm. You can do npm install angular to get AngularJS 1.3.0. We hope this makes it easier for developers to make use of some of the great tools built around npm for front-end web development.
