What’s new Permalink to "What’s new"

This is an emergency patch release to fix the broken ‘prod’ profile build using Angular.

Please note that:

  • This bug also affects both Angular (here is the ticket) and Angular CLI (here is the ticket). So JHipster users are lucky as we solved this quicker than both Angular and Angular CLI, and provide the only working Angular “prod” build at the moment :-)
  • This bug comes from uglify-es, which is a transitive dependency pulled by uglifyjs-webpack-plugin. This is why our Policy 4 is to fix dependencies, but we can’t force our dependencies to do the same. Of course we did a Pull Request to the uglifyjs-webpack-plugin project to solve this on their side, but they haven’t merged it yet.

Many thanks to @pascalgrimaud who found the bug, and corrected it!
