This is release 1.3.0 of the Angular CLI. As a minor release, it adds a lot of new features (as
well as a considerable amount of bug fixes) from the 1.2 releases.

Notably, amongst new features:

  1. Universal (experimental) support. Follow this tutorial to try it out.
  2. Add a new optimizer mode. Use --build-optimizer with ng build or ng serve to try it out.
    We suggest to use it only in production builds.
  3. Webpack 3 support. Webpack has been updated to the latest version, which includes multiple
    fixes and a scope hoisting features that you get for free.
  4. Naming of your lazy chunks. No more 0.js in your dist folder! This is disabled in production
  5. Typescript has been updated and we now support ES2017 by default.
  6. Proper size reporting. Sizes shown in your reports are now the ones from your filesystem.

Please test it out and let us know!
