Upgrade to rc3

The changelog about tthe ionic 2 rc3 does not have anything about how to upgrade to this version.

In previous releases, there were some guides (which dependencies to update in the package.json, for example). Should we only update the ionic-angular dependency (2.0.0.rc.2 to .3)? And the others (@angular/…)?



Same question. Waiting for an administration response.

Also interested if any extra procedures required.

I have tried to upgrade, changing ionic-nagular and zone.js

“ionic-angular”: “2.0.0-rc.3
"zone.js”: “0.6.26”

Everything seems ok: I did some basics tests in browser, emulator and real device.
But I’ll wait for the official guide :slight_smile:


So, this is correct way to update? What about ionic CLI (global), @ionic/app-scripts and @angular dependencies?

There is no yet a blog entry about RC.3. Maybe the Ionic team gonna describe that within his blog post

For me it worked fine with these dependencies:

"dependencies": {
  "@angular/common": "2.1.1",
  "@angular/compiler": "2.1.1",
  "@angular/compiler-cli": "2.1.1",
  "@angular/core": "2.1.1",
  "@angular/forms": "2.1.1",
  "@angular/http": "2.1.1",
  "@angular/platform-browser": "2.1.1",
  "@angular/platform-browser-dynamic": "2.1.1",
  "@angular/platform-server": "2.1.1",
  "@ionic/storage": "1.1.6",
  "ionic-angular": "2.0.0-rc.3",
  "ionic-native": "2.2.6",
  "ionicons": "3.0.0",
  "rxjs": "5.0.0-beta.12",
  "zone.js": "0.6.26"

Just delete the node_modules/ folder and do a fresh „npm install“.

The is now the official blog post about RC3


I think the angular version didn’t changed. In my case, I had to update zone.js. The above package.json of @MartiMcFlight works fine
