It has been a while since Angular 15 was released. If you didn’t read about what’s new in that version you can use the link provided above.

Since that time November, 16, 2022, Angular team released several new packages of the popular frontend framework.

Lines 12, 13 and 14 received some minor fixes, while line 15 got multiple updates with a minor 15.1.0 version released on January 10, 2023.

Below I will go through the most interesting fixes and features. If you like to learn more use the links provided in the article.

Fixed Kebab Case Property Handling In Animations

Dario Piotrowicz fixed animation camel case property handling.

Auto Import Handles Multiple Components With The Same Selector

I have seen projects where people accidentally created components with the same selectors. It was never a good sign. Especially since Angular joyfully accepts it.

The fix by Dylan Hunn does not protect against it, but is useful to be aware of the situation, and still be able to import the proper component.

Interestingly enough, the language service uses standard features, so you can import component with the Quick Fix menu in VSCode without any additional extensions.

I don’t remember about React, but Vue don’t seem to handle quick fix via language service.

Typescript 4.9

Angular 15.1.0 supports TypeScript 4.9. I wrote an article about it, so you can check it out. It is linked in the two sentences earlier.
