Google has officially rolled out AngularJS 2.0 JavaScript framework for your custom software development work. According to official sources, the product team did a grand launch party at its headquarters soon after the launch. 

The AngularJS 2.0 has been rewritten from scratch using Microsoft's TypeScript language for the first time since the official launch in October 2010. The latest release features enhanced performance with a wide range of broken code with a smaller footprint.

The main features of Anugular 2 are ahead-of-time compilation, built-in lazy loading, the new Angular CLI, and an Angular style guide. Moreover, Angular 2 also features ES5 and ES6 support, React Native and NativeScript integration.

You should note that Angular 2.x is not backward compatible with Angular 1.x applications. However, Google has taken all steps to simplify the migration process. Despite all efforts by Google, developers are expected to rewrite a large chunk of their JavaScript code when upgrading to the new version.

Google started the work on Angular 2 in 2014. However, the original stable release was planned in the autumn of 2015. Apparently, the development process was dragged with som mnay additions. The launch of final release was postponed every quarter due to various reasons.

In a statement released to press, the Node.js foundation revealed that over 5 million developers make use of AugularJS 2.0. 
The total user and community base has increased since 2015.

In 2016, the product team saw contributions from 87 developer who have Git commit access. Hence, the total list of contributors now equals 1084 individuals.

RisingStack has published the results of a very in-depth survey about the various use case of Node.js. To recall, Polymer has also released its first 2.0 Preview build, which features support for the v1 Shadow DOM and v1 Custom Elements APIs. 

Polymer is the JavaScript library developed by Google for working with the W3C Web Components specification.Recently, Google also announced support for CSS3 media queries in Gmail. This means that Gmail will feature a native 

responsive design no matter on what screen you view it. In the meantime, Mozilla engineers have launched debugger.html, a modern JavaScript debugger built as a web application in such a way to work with React and Redux.
