New Tools and Updates
The long-awaited Angular 9 version has been released. According to the Google development team, the new version has become the most significant Angular update over the past few years that embraces the whole platform but does not include any breaking changes (i.e. the API, the syntax, and the ways of building Angular applications remain the same). So, what is so special about this release?
The most noteworthy thing about Angular 9 is the fact that the new rendering engine named Ivy, which has been in development for quite a long time, is now available by default. This important feature provides a bunch of important improvements such as reduced bundle sizes, enhanced testing and debugging capabilities, improved building process, and much more. To learn more about this major release check out the Angular blog .
It should be noted that developers of this version mainly aimed at simplification of Scala.js and its future-proofing rather than complementing it with new features. But still, the new version ensures some enhancements such as improved runtime performance, better interoperability with JS libraries, and enhanced portability. Developers using older versions of Scala.js have to be aware of the fact that the new release includes some breaking changes that must be resolved before updating to 1.0.0.
Sonatype’s open source governance platform ensures automatic control over open source risks. The core element of the new capabilities is a special JS scanning algorithm that can generate nice and clear vulnerability reports based on both manifest and file scanning.
