Latest version of angular

Dear All,

will ionic support the latest version of angular or version 4.3.3? Or is it safe for us to update the angular api in package.json?


Latest version for ionic is 3.6.0 with stable dependency:

"dependencies": {
    "@angular/common": "4.1.3",
    "@angular/compiler": "4.1.3",
    "@angular/compiler-cli": "4.1.3",
    "@angular/core": "4.1.3",
    "@angular/forms": "4.1.3",
    "@angular/http": "4.1.3",
    "@angular/platform-browser": "4.1.3",
    "@angular/platform-browser-dynamic": "4.1.3",
    "ionicons": "~3.0.0",
    "rxjs": "5.4.0",
    "zone.js": "0.8.12"

You can give a try for angular 4.3.3 but my suggestion you should not. it can create problems hence Ionic team working hard and continuously updating dependencies and issue fixing.

Future Ionic releases will also bump Angular version again - but this has to be tested properly.
Of course you can be the tester yourself, but please make sure to report any breakage in the Github repository of Ionic :wink:
