Angularjs 2: Official release from Google team

Now it’s official. The complete new Angularjs version is now officially available. 6 years back in 2010, Google first launched Angularjs, a new way to develop web applications. Then in 2014 22-23 Sept Google announced that a new Angularjs version is going to be released with complete rewrite.  Now, after the final Angularjs 2 release, this is what they have to say:

Angular 1 first solved the problem of how to develop for an emerging web. Six years later, the challenges faced by today’s application developers, and the sophistication of the devices that applications must support, have both changed immensely. With this release, and its more capable versions of the Router, Forms, and other core APIs, today you can build amazing apps for any platform. If you prefer your own approach, Angular is also modular and flexible, so you can use your favorite third-party library or write your own.”
