Frequent updates are critical

The Angular team releases new versions of Angular frequently. These updates can be in the form of major, minor or patch releases. Patch releases fix security issues or bugs, minor releases add new features, and major releases can change how Angular works. With each minor release the Angular team aims to nudge you towards the next major release. If you keep your project up-to-date, not only will your be more secure, but also you will spend less time upgrading to the next major version of Angular, which happens every six months or so. However, you, as the developer are focused delivering new features to your app and you may not know when new versions of Angular are released. This is why the Expertly Simple team has developed a Visual Studio Code extension for Angular developers.
