“Working closely with a rich library like Angular has helped TypeScript to evolve additional language features that simplify end-to-end application development, including annotations, a way to add metadata to class declarations for use by dependency injection or compilation directives.”
TypeScript 1.0 was released last year and developer team has added ES6 syntax features along with building user-requested features such as ECMAScript 7 async/await to help coders write the asynchronous code easily. The latest developments have made the common build tasks up to 4 times faster.
There has been a continuous growth in the TypeScript ecosystem and this partnership with Google’s Angular team for Angular 2 will surely contribute to its growth.
Whereas, this move hasn’t been well received in the developer world because Angular 2 is incompatible with the previous framework version and Microsoft’s entry could make the situation even harder.
