Angular 14, the next major upgrade to the popular Google-developed, TypeScript-based web framework, will feature strictly typed reactive forms and extended template diagnostics. Due in June, the release will also make NgModules optional.
The most-requested improvement for the framework on GitHub, strictly typed reactive forms is intended to improve the developer experience of Angular’s model-driven approach to handling form inputs whose values change over time. Plans call for providing as much type safety as possible while balancing against API complexity; supporting gradual typing and allowing typed and untyped forms to be mixed; landing changes without breaking existing applications; and avoiding the fragmentation of the ecosystem. The intention is to not change template-driven forms.
