Angular 13, the latest upgrade to Google’s popular TypeScript-based web framework that promises to be “100 percent Ivy,” is now available as a production release.

Ivy is the Angular next-generation compilation and rendering engine, which Angular has been supporting in recent releases while maintaining support for the predecessor View Engine. Support for the Ivy library is being completed in Angular 13, and support for View Engine is being removed.
