Originally released by Google in 2010, AngularJS reached end of life on December 31 as long-term community support ceased. Users can still seek help from third parties, including the helpdesk companies XLTS.dev and Perforce. AngularJS source code will still be available on GitHub, via NPM, CDN and Bower.
Although inspired by AngularJS, Google Angular tracking is a different framework, using many of the same philosophies but rewritten in TypeScript in 2016. TypeScript provides static typing, supporting the development experience and helping to identify bugs. before deployment to production, said Minko Gechev. , Google Developer Relations Engineer.
EOL status for AngularJS comes with risks, said Javier Perez, open source evangelist at Perforce. “When long-term open source community support reaches end of life (EOL), no more fixes are released. For users, the risk of using EOL versions of the software is that if a new vulnerability of high severity or criticality is discovered, no patch will be available.
Angular is positioned by Google as a “batteries included” framework with built-in best practices. It is intended to be scalable and to help every developer evolve their applications, taking advantage of the ng update experience. Angular will continue to be published twice a year. Angular 13 was released in November, followed by point releases 13.1 and 13.1.1 in December.
