After Google's announcement that there would be a new version of Angular just 6 months after the release of Angular 2, some developers were initially a bit confused as to why they needed yet another major release.

As it turns out, the latest version of Angular is simply the equivalent of a 1.x release and there won't be any massive changes as there were between versions 1 and 2. 

But now it seems as though Google have taken the Valve approach by not knowing how to count to 3 (Yes we're still waiting for Half-Life 3, Gaben) and have instead skipped straight to Angular 4 which will be released in March this year.

Following this, there will be new releases every 6 months, which is why we might as well just refer to it as 'Angular' from now on.

Whilst there are a number of other frameworks such React (although not technically a framework as such!), Vue.js (growing in popularity) or the emerging Aurelia, it's clear that Angular will dominate as one of the leading frameworks for years to come.
