👋Hey fellow Angular Addict

📰This is the 13th issue of the Angular Addicts Newsletter, a monthly collection of carefully selected Angular resources that got my attention. (You can read the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth, eleventh and twelfth issue here.)

📢Release announcements

📢Angular v16 is now available!

The latest version of Angular has been released last week. Minko Gechev summarizes the most important new features in his release announcement.

I listed out the most important changes and new features, also shared resources that will teach you how these new Angular features work, read my article "Master Angular 16" here.

The biggest highlights of this version are:

  • Signals
  • DestroyRef and takeUntilDestroyed
  • Required inputs
  • Bind Router information to component inputs
  • Node.js v14 support has been removed
  • TypeScript 5.0 Support
  • Angular Compatibility Compiler (ngcc) has been removed
  • Server Side Rendering: Non-destructive hydration + now the results of a request done on the server side can be reused on the client side
  • Strict type checking for ngTemplateOutlet
  • provideServiceWorker function to register service workers in standalone applications
  • Experimental Jest support
  • Vite + Esbuild based dev server.

📢 Nx v16 is here!

Nx v16 is here. Zack DeRose helps us explore the new features:

  • Simpler presets for React, Angular, and Node starter apps
  • Vite and Vitest support for integrated Nx monorepos
  • Official Deno plugin
  • Support for non-npm workspaces to support workspaces focused on other languages like C#, Java, and Kotlin
  • Nx Console for JetBrains IDEs
  • We have decoupled the Nx version from Angular versions allowing you to update Nx without updating Angular

🙋‍♂️Who is behind Angular Addicts?

My name is Gergely Szerovay, I work as a frontend development chapter lead. Teaching (and learning) Angular is one of my passions. I consume content related to Angular on a daily basis — articles, podcasts, conference talks, you name it.

I created the Angular Addict Newsletter so that I can send you the best resources I come across each month. Whether you are a seasoned Angular Addict or a beginner, I got you covered.
