Breaking Changes


  • classlist.js and web-animations-js are removed from application polyfills and uninstalled from the package. These were only needed for compatibility with Internet Explorer, which is no longer needed now that Angular only supports evergreen browsers. See:

Add the following to the polyfills file for an app to re-add these packages:

import 'classlist.js';
import 'web-animations-js';

And then run:

npm install classlist.js web-animations-js --save
  • We removed several deprecated @schematics/angular deprecated options.
  • lintFix have been removed from all schematics. ng lint --fix should be used instead.
  • legacyBrowsers have been removed from the application schematics since IE 11 is no longer supported.
  • configuration has been removed from the web-worker as it was unused.
  • target has been removed from the service-worker as it was unused.


  • We drop support for Node.js versions prior to 12.20.


  • Support for karma-coverage-instanbul-reporter has been dropped in favor of the official karma coverage plugin karma-coverage.

  • Support for node-sass has been removed. sass will be used by default to compile SASS and SCSS files.

  • NG_PERSISTENT_BUILD_CACHE environment variable option no longer have effect. Configure cli.cache in the workspace configuration instead.

  "$schema": "./node_modules/@angular/cli/lib/config/schema.json",
  "version": 1,
  "cli": {
    "cache": {
      "enabled": true,
      "path": ".custom-cache-path",
      "environment": "all"
  • The automatic inclusion of Angular-required ES2015 polyfills to support ES5 browsers has been removed. Previously when targetting ES5 within the application's TypeScript configuration or listing an ES5 requiring browser in the browserslist file, Angular-required polyfills were included in the built application. However, with Angular no longer supporting IE11, there are now no browsers officially supported by Angular that would require these polyfills. As a result, the automatic inclusion of these ES2015 polyfills has been removed. Any polyfills manually added to an application's code are not affected by this change.

  • With this change a number of deprecated dev-server builder options which proxied to the browser builder have been removed. These options should be configured in the browser builder instead.

The removed options are:

  • aot

  • sourceMap

  • deployUrl

  • baseHref

  • vendorChunk

  • commonChunk

  • optimization

  • progress

  • With this change we removed several deprecated builder options

  • extractCss has been removed from the browser builder. CSS is now always extracted.

  • servePathDefaultWarning and hmrWarning have been removed from the dev-server builder. These options had no effect.

  • Deprecated @angular-devkit/build-angular:tslint builder has been removed. Use instead.

  • Differential loading support has been removed. With Angular no longer supporting IE11, there are now no browsers officially supported by Angular that require ES5 code. As a result, differential loading's functionality for creating and conditionally loading ES5 and ES2015+ variants of an application is no longer required.

  • TypeScript versions prior to 4.4 are no longer supported.

  • The dev-server now uses WebSockets to communicate changes to the browser during HMR and live-reloaded. If during your development you are using a proxy you will need to enable proxying of WebSockets.

  • We remove inlining of Google fonts in WOFF format since IE 11 is no longer supported. Other supported browsers use WOFF2.


Note: this change only affects users depending on @angular-devkit/build-webpack directly.


  • With this change we drop support for the deprecated behaviour to transform id in schemas. Use $id instead.

Note: this only effects schematics and builders authors.

  • The deprecated JSON parser has been removed from public API. jsonc-parser should be used instead.


  • isAction has been removed without replacement as it was unused.

  • With this change we remove the following deprecated APIs

  • TslintFixTask

  • TslintFixTaskOptions

Note: this only effects schematics developers.


  • Deprecated inlineStyleMimeType option has been removed from AngularWebpackPluginOptions. Use inlineStyleFileExtension instead.

  • Applications directly using the webpack-cli and not the Angular CLI to build must set the environment variable DISABLE_V8_COMPILE_CACHE=1. The @ngtools/webpack package now uses dynamic imports to provide support for the ESM @angular/compiler-cli package. The v8-compile-cache package used by the webpack-cli does not currently support dynamic import expressions and will cause builds to fail if the environment variable is not specified. Applications using the Angular CLI are not affected by this limitation.


  • @angular-devkit/build-optimizer

It's functionality has been included in @angular-devkit/build-angular so this package is no longer needed by the CLI and we will stop publishing the package soon. It has been an experimental (never hit 1.0.0) and internal (only used by Angular itself) package and should be not be used directly by others.


  • NG_BUILD_CACHE environment variable option will be removed in the next major version. Configure cli.cache in the workspace configuration instead.
