Any plans for ionic 1 update its underlying angular version?

I’m developing my apps using the latest ionic v.1 (ionic --version: 1.7.14), and no new updates of ionic 1 have been done in months. Ionic v2 is still in beta, and it doesn’t supports android 4.1-4.3, which is a serious obstacle (crosswalk/crosswalk light aren’t viable options).
I would like to know if there is any plans for a new update of ionic version 1 with the latest version of angular 1 (1.5.3) ?

Good question! I would like to know this as well.

It is currently being worked on. :slight_smile:

Thank you for the reply.
I will be looking forward for the update.
