AngularJS 1.2.0-rc1: spooky-giraffe

The long-awaited release candidate for 1.2, version 1.2.0rc1 is available!

AngularJS 1.2.0rc1 spooky-giraffe adds a whole lot of new features that we've been working on in the 1.1.x releases: security improvements, a complete rewrite of transitions/animations support, better error messages (including error message minification), compiler additions, and better support for mobile/touchscreen devices.

There are also a few breaking changes since 1.1.5, most notably in $compile, to improve security and animations/transitions apis.

For full details in this release, see the changelog.

Please try it out, kick the tires, read the new docs, and report any issues. If you find anything new affecting this release, be sure to note the version 1.2.0-rc1 in your report.

We'll add a few more documentation changes, tutorial updates, and minor details before putting the final stamp on 1.2.

PS If you're wondering what's up with 1.0.x branch, we still have at least one bugfix release planned for 1.0.x. We're planning to have that out within a few days

  5. Excited that 1.2 is here. Thanks for all your hard work guys!

  6. Will 1.1 be deemed stable soon?

  7. @Jacek, no Angulars stable releases skip a minor version. So:
    1.0.x: stable branche.
    1.1.x: unstable branche.
    1.2.x: stable branche.

    Since the RC of 1.2.0 is now released I would expect it to be final within 1 / 2 months.
