Current behavior
The date pipe output is incorrect when custom formats are used with various locales. The current implementation will use Intl.DateTimeFormat to localize DateTime information, and then use string manipulation to extract individual components as the output is not granular enough. The bugs come mainly from assumptions about how the format looks across all locales.

I've provided unit tests as a repro- the expected results are valid on Chrome, but not necessarily IE - (different browsers format locales differently, including the order of components, number system and alphabets used.) See the full tests created while investigating the issue at https://gist.github.com/gary-b/bdc67fae4767c7da08ee93965a955fa5

assume date = new Date(2015, 5, 15, 9, 3, 1);
1.The day part ('a') output fails in various locales

// When Intl.DateTimeFormat puts the day part in front of the hour for the locale
pipe = new DatePipe('hu');
expect(pipe.transform(date, 'a')).toEqual('de.'); // outputs 9
// When Intl.DateTimeFormat has a space in the day part string itself for the locale
pipe = new DatePipe('sr');
expect(pipe.transform(date, 'a')).toEqual('пре подне'); // outputs npe

See the Intl.ts hourClockExtractor function.

2.The 2 digit formatting (eg "hh") outputs a mix of numbering systems

pipe = new DatePipe('mr');
expect(pipe.transform(date, 'hh')).toEqual('०९'); // outputs 0९

The '0' is hard coded into angular's Intl.js digitModifier function.

3.The timezone output fails with certain locales

// When the browser puts the hour after the timezone for the locale
pipe = new DatePipe('zh');
expect(pipe.transform(date, 'Z')).toEqual('GMT+1'); // outputs +19时
// When Intl.DateTimeFormat outputs an hour identifier between the hour and the timezone for the locale, eg for fr you get 09 h UTC+1
pipe = new DatePipe('fr');
expect(pipe.transform(date, 'Z')).toEqual('UTC+1'); // outputs h UTC+1

See the Intl.ts timeZoneGetter function.

4.The era output doesn't work on any locale I tried

expect(pipe.transform(date, 'G')).toEqual('A');//outputs 6 15, 2015 A

Angular's Intl.ts assumes the Intl.DateTimeFormat object will output the era on its own, it doesn't.

What is the motivation / use case for changing the behavior?
Broken.

@DzmitryShylovich As that issue states it "is mostly to summarize issues about Intl.API" for discussion. These are 4 new specific issues. Might make sense to add a brief overview to #10809 and leave the details here.

We can add new issues forever but it doesn't change anything. We need some real alternative or design doc.

@gary-b thnx for the super-detailed summary issues. Indeed the current handling of custom formats needs much more love and your list helps us making things better! Thank you.

@DzmitryShylovich I'm going to keep this one open as it is very detailed and valuable. We need to make sure that all the use-cases here are turned into tests and those tests are run as part of CI on each and every supported browser.

Hello, most of these issues will be fixed with the PR to replace the intl API for angular v5 (see #10809)

  • The day part "a" works according to your tests
  • The numbering system will show 09, but not ०९ because we only support latin characters for now (we could support all numbering systems with the data that we have, but only if someone ask for it, because it adds a lot of data)
  • The timezones with Z will show +0200 in both cases, if you want GMT+2 you'll have to use O. Note that it's +0200 because of the summer/winter times, but you can fix the timezone as a new additional parameter of the pipe

feat(common): drop use of the Intl API to improve browser support
BREAKING CHANGE: Because of multiple bugs and browser inconsistencies, we have dropped the intl api in favor of data exported from the Unicode Common Locale Data Repository (CLDR).
Unfortunately we had to change the i18n pipes (date, number, currency, percent) and there are some breaking changes.

## I18n pipes
### Breaking change
By default Angular now only contains locale data for the language `en-US`, if you set the value of `LOCALE_ID` to another locale, you will have to import new locale data for this language because we don't use the intl API anymore. You can find out how to import those additional locales in the i18n guide.

### Features
- you don't need to use the intl polyfill anymore, you can safely remove it from your applications.
- all i18n pipes now have an additional last parameter `locale` which allows you to use a specific locale instead of the one defined in the token `LOCALE_ID` (whose value is `en-US` by default).
- the new locale data extracted from CLDR are now available to developers as well and can be used through an API (which should be especially useful for library authors).
- you can still use the old pipes for now, but their names have been changed and they are no longer included in the `CommonModule`. To use them, you will have to import the `DeprecatedI18NPipesModule` after the `CommonModule` (the order is important):

```ts
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { CommonModule, DeprecatedI18NPipesModule } from '@angular/common';
 
@NgModule({
  imports: [
    CommonModule,
    // import deprecated module after
    DeprecatedI18NPipesModule
  ]
})
export class AppModule { }
```

Dont forget that you will still need to import the intl API polyfill if you want to use those deprecated pipes.


## Date pipe
### Breaking changes
- predefined formats `short`, and `shortDate` now use a short year, e.g. `8/15/17` instead of `8/15/2017`.
- the narrow version of eras is now `GGGGG` instead of `G`, the format `G` is now similar to `GG` and `GGG`.
- the narrow version of months is now `MMMMM` instead of `L`, the format `L` is now the short standalone version of months.
- the narrow version of the week day is now `EEEEE` instead of `E`, the format `E` is now similar to `EE` and `EEE`.
- the timezone `z` will now fallback to `O` and output `GMT+1` instead of the complete zone name (e.g. `Pacific Standard Time`), this is because the quantity of data required to have all the zone names in all of the existing locales is too big.
- the timezone `Z` will now output the ISO8601 basic format, e.g. `+0100`, you should now use `ZZZZ` to get `GMT+01:00`.

| Field type | Format        | Example value         | v4 | v5            |
|------------|---------------|-----------------------|----|---------------|
| Eras       | Narrow        | A for AD              | G  | GGGGG         |
| Months     | Narrow        | S for September       | L  | MMMMM         |
| Week day   | Narrow        | M for Monday          | E  | EEEEE         |
| Timezone   | Long location | Pacific Standard Time | z  | Not available |
| Timezone   | Long GMT      | GMT+01:00             | Z  | ZZZZ          |

### Features
- new predefined formats `long`, `full`, `longTime`, `fullTime`.
- the format `yyy` is now supported, e.g. the year `52` will be `052` and the year `2017` will be `2017`.
- standalone months are now supported with the formats `L` to `LLLLL`.
- week of the year is now supported with the formats `w` and `ww`, e.g. weeks `5` and `05`.
- week of the month is now supported with the format `W`, e.g. week `3`.
- fractional seconds are now supported with the format `S` to `SSS`.
- day periods for AM/PM now supports additional formats `aa`, `aaa`, `aaaa` and `aaaaa`. The formats `a` to `aaa` are similar, while `aaaa` is the wide version if available (e.g. `ante meridiem` for `am`), or equivalent to `a` otherwise, and `aaaaa` is the narrow version (e.g. `a` for `am`).
- extra day periods are now supported with the formats `b` to `bbbbb` (and `B` to `BBBBB` for the standalone equivalents), e.g. `morning`, `noon`, `afternoon`, ....
- the short non-localized timezones are now available with the format `O` to `OOOO`. The formats `O` to `OOO` will output `GMT+1` while the format `OOOO` will be `GMT+01:00`.
- the ISO8601 basic time zones are now available with the formats `Z` to `ZZZZZ`. The formats `Z` to `ZZZ` will output `+0100`, while the format `ZZZZ` will be `GMT+01:00` and `ZZZZZ` will be `+01:00`.

### Bug fixes
- the date pipe will now work exactly the same across all browsers, which will fix a lot of bugs for safari and IE.
- eras can now be used on their own without the date, e.g. the format `GG` will be `AD` instead of `8 15, 2017 AD`.


## Currency pipe
### Breaking changes
- the second parameter of the currency pipe (`symbolDisplay`) is no longer a boolean, it now takes the values `code`, `symbol` or `symbol-narrow`.
- the default value for `symbolDisplay` is now `symbol` instead of `code`. This means that by default you will see `$4.99` for `en-US` instead of `USD4.99` previously.

### Features
- you can now choose between `code`, `symbol` or `symbol-narrow` which gives you access to more options for some currencies (e.g. the canadian dollar with the code `CAD` has the symbol `CA$` and the symbol-narrow `$`).


## Percent pipe
### Breaking change
- if you don't specify the number of digits to round to, the local format will be used (and it usually rounds numbers to 0 digits, instead of not rounding previously), e.g. `{{ 3.141592 | percent }}` will output `314%` for the locale `en-US` instead of `314.1592%` previously.

- if you don't specify the number of digits to round to, the local format will be used (and it usually rounds numbers to 0 digits, instead of not rounding previously), e.g. `{{ 3.141592 | percent }}` will output `314%` for the locale `en-US` instead of `314.1592%` previously.

feat(common): drop use of the Intl API to improve browser support
BREAKING CHANGE: Because of multiple bugs and browser inconsistencies, we have dropped the intl api in favor of data exported from the Unicode Common Locale Data Repository (CLDR).
Unfortunately we had to change the i18n pipes (date, number, currency, percent) and there are some breaking changes.

## I18n pipes
### Breaking change
By default Angular now only contains locale data for the language `en-US`, if you set the value of `LOCALE_ID` to another locale, you will have to import new locale data for this language because we don't use the intl API anymore.

### Features
- angular doesn't need the intl polyfill anymore
- all i18n pipes now have an additional last parameter `locale` which allows you to use a specific locale instead of the one defined in the token `LOCALE_ID` (whose value is `en-US` by default).
- the new locale data extracted from CLDR are now available to developers as well and can be used through an API (which should be especially useful for library authors).
- you can still use the old pipes for now, but their names have been changed and they are no longer included in the `CommonModule`. To use them, you will have to import the `DeprecatedI18NPipesModule` after the `CommonModule` (the order is important):

```ts
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { CommonModule, DeprecatedI18NPipesModule } from '@angular/common';
 
@NgModule({
  imports: [
    CommonModule,
    // import deprecated module after
    DeprecatedI18NPipesModule
  ]
})
export class AppModule { }
```

Dont forget that you will still need to import the intl API polyfill if you want to use those deprecated pipes.


## Date pipe
### Breaking changes
- predefined formats `short`, and `shortDate` now use a short year, e.g. `8/15/17` instead of `8/15/2017`.
- the narrow version of eras is now `GGGGG` instead of `G`, the format `G` is now similar to `GG` and `GGG`.
- the narrow version of months is now `MMMMM` instead of `L`, the format `L` is now the short standalone version of months.
- the narrow version of the week day is now `EEEEE` instead of `E`, the format `E` is now similar to `EE` and `EEE`.
- the timezone `z` will now fallback to `O` and output `GMT+1` instead of the complete zone name (e.g. `Pacific Standard Time`), this is because the quantity of data required to have all the zone names in all of the existing locales is too big.
- the timezone `Z` will now output the ISO8601 basic format, e.g. `+0100`, you should now use `ZZZZ` to get `GMT+01:00`.

| Field type | Format        | Example value         | v4 | v5            |
|------------|---------------|-----------------------|----|---------------|
| Eras       | Narrow        | A for AD              | G  | GGGGG         |
| Months     | Narrow        | S for September       | L  | MMMMM         |
| Week day   | Narrow        | M for Monday          | E  | EEEEE         |
| Timezone   | Long location | Pacific Standard Time | z  | Not available |
| Timezone   | Long GMT      | GMT+01:00             | Z  | ZZZZ          |

### Features
- new predefined formats `long`, `full`, `longTime`, `fullTime`.
- the format `yyy` is now supported, e.g. the year `52` will be `052` and the year `2017` will be `2017`.
- standalone months are now supported with the formats `L` to `LLLLL`.
- week of the year is now supported with the formats `w` and `ww`, e.g. weeks `5` and `05`.
- week of the month is now supported with the format `W`, e.g. week `3`.
- fractional seconds are now supported with the format `S` to `SSS`.
- day periods for AM/PM now supports additional formats `aa`, `aaa`, `aaaa` and `aaaaa`. The formats `a` to `aaa` are similar, while `aaaa` is the wide version if available (e.g. `ante meridiem` for `am`), or equivalent to `a` otherwise, and `aaaaa` is the narrow version (e.g. `a` for `am`).
- extra day periods are now supported with the formats `b` to `bbbbb` (and `B` to `BBBBB` for the standalone equivalents), e.g. `morning`, `noon`, `afternoon`, ....
- the short non-localized timezones are now available with the format `O` to `OOOO`. The formats `O` to `OOO` will output `GMT+1` while the format `OOOO` will be `GMT+01:00`.
- the ISO8601 basic time zones are now available with the formats `Z` to `ZZZZZ`. The formats `Z` to `ZZZ` will output `+0100`, while the format `ZZZZ` will be `GMT+01:00` and `ZZZZZ` will be `+01:00`.

### Bug fixes
- the date pipe will now work exactly the same across all browsers, which will fix a lot of bugs for safari and IE.
- eras can now be used on their own without the date, e.g. the format `GG` will be `AD` instead of `8 15, 2017 AD`.


## Currency pipe
### Breaking changes
- the second parameter of the currency pipe (`symbolDisplay`) is no longer a boolean, it now takes the values `code`, `symbol` or `symbol-narrow`.
- the default value for `symbolDisplay` is now `symbol` instead of `code`. This means that by default you will see `$4.99` for `en-US` instead of `USD4.99` previously.

### Features
- you can now choose between `code`, `symbol` or `symbol-narrow` which gives you access to more options for some currencies (e.g. the canadian dollar with the code `CAD` has the symbol `CA$` and the symbol-narrow `$`).


## Percent pipe
### Breaking change
- if you don't specify the number of digits to round to, the local format will be used (and it usually rounds numbers to 0 digits, instead of not rounding previously), e.g. `{{ 3.141592 | percent }}` will output `314%` for the locale `en-US` instead of `314.1592%` previously.

BREAKING CHANGE: Because of multiple bugs and browser inconsistencies, we have dropped the intl api in favor of data exported from the Unicode Common Locale Data Repository (CLDR).
Unfortunately we had to change the i18n pipes (date, number, currency, percent) and there are some breaking changes.

1. I18n pipes
* Breaking change:
  - By default Angular now only contains locale data for the language `en-US`, if you set the value of `LOCALE_ID` to another locale, you will have to import new locale data for this language because we don't use the intl API anymore. You can find out how to import those additional locales in the i18n guide.

* Features:
  - you don't need to use the intl polyfill anymore, you can safely remove it from your applications.
  - all i18n pipes now have an additional last parameter `locale` which allows you to use a specific locale instead of the one      defined in the token `LOCALE_ID` (whose value is `en-US` by default).
  - the new locale data extracted from CLDR are now available to developers as well and can be used through an API (which should be especially useful for library authors).
  - you can still use the old pipes for now, but their names have been changed and they are no longer included in the `CommonModule`. To use them, you will have to import the `DeprecatedI18NPipesModule` after the `CommonModule` (the order is important):

    imports: [
      CommonModule,
      // import deprecated module after
      DeprecatedI18NPipesModule
    ]
  })
  export class AppModule { }
  ```

  Dont forget that you will still need to import the intl API polyfill if you want to use those deprecated pipes.


2. Date pipe
* Breaking changes:
  - predefined formats `short`, and `shortDate` now use a short year, e.g. `8/15/17` instead of `8/15/2017`.
  - the narrow version of eras is now `GGGGG` instead of `G`, the format `G` is now similar to `GG` and `GGG`.
  - the narrow version of months is now `MMMMM` instead of `L`, the format `L` is now the short standalone version of months.
  - the narrow version of the week day is now `EEEEE` instead of `E`, the format `E` is now similar to `EE` and `EEE`.
  - the timezone `z` will now fallback to `O` and output `GMT+1` instead of the complete zone name (e.g. `Pacific Standard Time`), this is because the quantity of data required to have all the zone names in all of the existing locales is too big.
  - the timezone `Z` will now output the ISO8601 basic format, e.g. `+0100`, you should now use `ZZZZ` to get `GMT+01:00`.

  | Field type | Format        | Example value         | v4 | v5            |
  |------------|---------------|-----------------------|----|---------------|
  | Eras       | Narrow        | A for AD              | G  | GGGGG         |
  | Months     | Narrow        | S for September       | L  | MMMMM         |
  | Week day   | Narrow        | M for Monday          | E  | EEEEE         |
  | Timezone   | Long location | Pacific Standard Time | z  | Not available |
  | Timezone   | Long GMT      | GMT+01:00             | Z  | ZZZZ          |

* Features
  - new predefined formats `long`, `full`, `longTime`, `fullTime`.
  - the format `yyy` is now supported, e.g. the year `52` will be `052` and the year `2017` will be `2017`.
  - standalone months are now supported with the formats `L` to `LLLLL`.
  - week of the year is now supported with the formats `w` and `ww`, e.g. weeks `5` and `05`.
  - week of the month is now supported with the format `W`, e.g. week `3`.
  - fractional seconds are now supported with the format `S` to `SSS`.
  - day periods for AM/PM now supports additional formats `aa`, `aaa`, `aaaa` and `aaaaa`. The formats `a` to `aaa` are similar, while `aaaa` is the wide version if available (e.g. `ante meridiem` for `am`), or equivalent to `a` otherwise, and `aaaaa` is the narrow version (e.g. `a` for `am`).
  - extra day periods are now supported with the formats `b` to `bbbbb` (and `B` to `BBBBB` for the standalone equivalents), e.g. `morning`, `noon`, `afternoon`, ....
  - the short non-localized timezones are now available with the format `O` to `OOOO`. The formats `O` to `OOO` will output `GMT+1` while the format `OOOO` will be `GMT+01:00`.
  - the ISO8601 basic time zones are now available with the formats `Z` to `ZZZZZ`. The formats `Z` to `ZZZ` will output `+0100`, while the format `ZZZZ` will be `GMT+01:00` and `ZZZZZ` will be `+01:00`.

* Bug fixes
  - the date pipe will now work exactly the same across all browsers, which will fix a lot of bugs for safari and IE.
  - eras can now be used on their own without the date, e.g. the format `GG` will be `AD` instead of `8 15, 2017 AD`.


3. Currency pipe
* Breaking changes:
  - the second parameter of the currency pipe (`symbolDisplay`) is no longer a boolean, it now takes the values `code`, `symbol` or `symbol-narrow`.
  - the default value for `symbolDisplay` is now `symbol` instead of `code`. This means that by default you will see `$4.99` for `en-US` instead of `USD4.99` previously.

* Features:
  - you can now choose between `code`, `symbol` or `symbol-narrow` which gives you access to more options for some currencies (e.g. the canadian dollar with the code `CAD` has the symbol `CA$` and the symbol-narrow `$`).


4. Percent pipe
* Breaking change
  - if you don't specify the number of digits to round to, the local format will be used (and it usually rounds numbers to 0 digits, instead of not rounding previously), e.g. `{{ 3.141592 | percent }}` will output `314%` for the locale `en-US` instead of `314.1592%` previously.

feat(common): drop use of the Intl API to improve browser support
BREAKING CHANGE: Because of multiple bugs and browser inconsistencies, we have dropped the intl api in favor of data exported from the Unicode Common Locale Data Repository (CLDR).
Unfortunately we had to change the i18n pipes (date, number, currency, percent) and there are some breaking changes.

1. I18n pipes
* Breaking change:
  - By default Angular now only contains locale data for the language `en-US`, if you set the value of `LOCALE_ID` to another locale, you will have to import new locale data for this language because we don't use the intl API anymore. You can find out how to import those additional locales in the i18n guide.

* Features:
  - you don't need to use the intl polyfill anymore, you can safely remove it from your applications.
  - all i18n pipes now have an additional last parameter `locale` which allows you to use a specific locale instead of the one      defined in the token `LOCALE_ID` (whose value is `en-US` by default).
  - the new locale data extracted from CLDR are now available to developers as well and can be used through an API (which should be especially useful for library authors).
  - you can still use the old pipes for now, but their names have been changed and they are no longer included in the `CommonModule`. To use them, you will have to import the `DeprecatedI18NPipesModule` after the `CommonModule` (the order is important):

  ```ts
  import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
  import { CommonModule, DeprecatedI18NPipesModule } from '@angular/common';

  @NgModule({
    imports: [
      CommonModule,
      // import deprecated module after

  - the narrow version of eras is now `GGGGG` instead of `G`, the format `G` is now similar to `GG` and `GGG`.
  - the narrow version of months is now `MMMMM` instead of `L`, the format `L` is now the short standalone version of months.
  - the narrow version of the week day is now `EEEEE` instead of `E`, the format `E` is now similar to `EE` and `EEE`.
  - the timezone `z` will now fallback to `O` and output `GMT+1` instead of the complete zone name (e.g. `Pacific Standard Time`), this is because the quantity of data required to have all the zone names in all of the existing locales is too big.
  - the timezone `Z` will now output the ISO8601 basic format, e.g. `+0100`, you should now use `ZZZZ` to get `GMT+01:00`.

  | Field type | Format        | Example value         | v4 | v5            |
  |------------|---------------|-----------------------|----|---------------|
  | Eras       | Narrow        | A for AD              | G  | GGGGG         |

  | Timezone   | Long GMT      | GMT+01:00             | Z  | ZZZZ          |

* Features
  - new predefined formats `long`, `full`, `longTime`, `fullTime`.
  - the format `yyy` is now supported, e.g. the year `52` will be `052` and the year `2017` will be `2017`.
  - standalone months are now supported with the formats `L` to `LLLLL`.
  - week of the year is now supported with the formats `w` and `ww`, e.g. weeks `5` and `05`.
  - week of the month is now supported with the format `W`, e.g. week `3`.
  - fractional seconds are now supported with the format `S` to `SSS`.
  - day periods for AM/PM now supports additional formats `aa`, `aaa`, `aaaa` and `aaaaa`. The formats `a` to `aaa` are similar, while `aaaa` is the wide version if available (e.g. `ante meridiem` for `am`), or equivalent to `a` otherwise, and `aaaaa` is the narrow version (e.g. `a` for `am`).
  - extra day periods are now supported with the formats `b` to `bbbbb` (and `B` to `BBBBB` for the standalone equivalents), e.g. `morning`, `noon`, `afternoon`, ....
  - the short non-localized timezones are now available with the format `O` to `OOOO`. The formats `O` to `OOO` will output `GMT+1` while the format `OOOO` will be `GMT+01:00`.
  - the ISO8601 basic time zones are now available with the formats `Z` to `ZZZZZ`. The formats `Z` to `ZZZ` will output `+0100`, while the format `ZZZZ` will be `GMT+01:00` and `ZZZZZ` will be `+01:00`.

* Bug fixes
  - the date pipe will now work exactly the same across all browsers, which will fix a lot of bugs for safari and IE.
  - eras can now be used on their own without the date, e.g. the format `GG` will be `AD` instead of `8 15, 2017 AD`.


3. Currency pipe
* Breaking changes:
  - the second parameter of the currency pipe (`symbolDisplay`) is no longer a boolean, it now takes the values `code`, `symbol` or `symbol-narrow`.
  - the default value for `symbolDisplay` is now `symbol` instead of `code`. This means that by default you will see `$4.99` for `en-US` instead of `USD4.99` previously.

* Features:
  - you can now choose between `code`, `symbol` or `symbol-narrow` which gives you access to more options for some currencies (e.g. the canadian dollar with the code `CAD` has the symbol `CA$` and the symbol-narrow `$`).


4. Percent pipe
* Breaking change
  - if you don't specify the number of digits to round to, the local format will be used (and it usually rounds numbers to 0 digits, instead of not rounding previously), e.g. `{{ 3.141592 | percent }}` will output `314%` for the locale `en-US` instead of `314.1592%` previously.

feat(common): drop use of the Intl API to improve browser support
BREAKING CHANGE: Because of multiple bugs and browser inconsistencies, we have dropped the intl api in favor of data exported from the Unicode Common Locale Data Repository (CLDR).
Unfortunately we had to change the i18n pipes (date, number, currency, percent) and there are some breaking changes.

1. I18n pipes
* Breaking change:
  - By default Angular now only contains locale data for the language `en-US`, if you set the value of `LOCALE_ID` to another locale, you will have to import new locale data for this language because we don't use the intl API anymore.

* Features:
  - you don't need to use the intl polyfill for Angular anymore.
  - all i18n pipes now have an additional last parameter `locale` which allows you to use a specific locale instead of the one defined in the token `LOCALE_ID` (whose value is `en-US` by default).
  - the new locale data extracted from CLDR are now available to developers as well and can be used through an API (which should be especially useful for library authors).
  - you can still use the old pipes for now, but their names have been changed and they are no longer included in the `CommonModule`. To use them, you will have to import the `DeprecatedI18NPipesModule` after the `CommonModule` (the order is important):

  ```ts
  import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
  import { CommonModule, DeprecatedI18NPipesModule } from '@angular/common';

  @NgModule({
    imports: [
      CommonModule,
      // import deprecated module after

  - the predefined formats (`short`, `shortTime`, `shortDate`, `medium`, ...) now use the patterns given by CLDR (like it was in AngularJS) instead of the ones from the intl API. You might notice some changes, e.g. `shortDate` will be `8/15/17` instead of `8/15/2017` for `en-US`.
  - the narrow version of eras is now `GGGGG` instead of `G`, the format `G` is now similar to `GG` and `GGG`.
  - the narrow version of months is now `MMMMM` instead of `L`, the format `L` is now the short standalone version of months.
  - the narrow version of the week day is now `EEEEE` instead of `E`, the format `E` is now similar to `EE` and `EEE`.
  - the timezone `z` will now fallback to `O` and output `GMT+1` instead of the complete zone name (e.g. `Pacific Standard Time`), this is because the quantity of data required to have all the zone names in all of the existing locales is too big.
  - the timezone `Z` will now output the ISO8601 basic format, e.g. `+0100`, you should now use `ZZZZ` to get `GMT+01:00`.

  | Field type | Format        | Example value         | v4 | v5            |
  |------------|---------------|-----------------------|----|---------------|
  | Eras       | Narrow        | A for AD              | G  | GGGGG         |
  | Months     | Narrow        | S for September       | L  | MMMMM         |
  | Week day   | Narrow        | M for Monday          | E  | EEEEE         |
  | Timezone   | Long location | Pacific Standard Time | z  | Not available |
  | Timezone   | Long GMT      | GMT+01:00             | Z  | ZZZZ          |

* Features
  - new predefined formats `long`, `full`, `longTime`, `fullTime`.
  - the format `yyy` is now supported, e.g. the year `52` will be `052` and the year `2017` will be `2017`.
  - standalone months are now supported with the formats `L` to `LLLLL`.
  - week of the year is now supported with the formats `w` and `ww`, e.g. weeks `5` and `05`.
  - week of the month is now supported with the format `W`, e.g. week `3`.
  - fractional seconds are now supported with the format `S` to `SSS`.
  - day periods for AM/PM now supports additional formats `aa`, `aaa`, `aaaa` and `aaaaa`. The formats `a` to `aaa` are similar, while `aaaa` is the wide version if available (e.g. `ante meridiem` for `am`), or equivalent to `a` otherwise, and `aaaaa` is the narrow version (e.g. `a` for `am`).
  - extra day periods are now supported with the formats `b` to `bbbbb` (and `B` to `BBBBB` for the standalone equivalents), e.g. `morning`, `noon`, `afternoon`, ....
  - the short non-localized timezones are now available with the format `O` to `OOOO`. The formats `O` to `OOO` will output `GMT+1` while the format `OOOO` will be `GMT+01:00`.
  - the ISO8601 basic time zones are now available with the formats `Z` to `ZZZZZ`. The formats `Z` to `ZZZ` will output `+0100`, while the format `ZZZZ` will be `GMT+01:00` and `ZZZZZ` will be `+01:00`.

* Bug fixes
  - the date pipe will now work exactly the same across all browsers, which will fix a lot of bugs for safari and IE.
  - eras can now be used on their own without the date, e.g. the format `GG` will be `AD` instead of `8 15, 2017 AD`.

3. Currency pipe
* Breaking change:
  - the default value for `symbolDisplay` is now `symbol` instead of `code`. This means that by default you will see `$4.99` for `en-US` instead of `USD4.99` previously.

* Deprecation:
  - the second parameter of the currency pipe (`symbolDisplay`) is no longer a boolean, it now takes the values `code`, `symbol` or `symbol-narrow`. A boolean value is still valid for now, but it is deprecated and it will print a warning message in the console.

* Features:
  - you can now choose between `code`, `symbol` or `symbol-narrow` which gives you access to more options for some currencies (e.g. the canadian dollar with the code `CAD` has the symbol `CA$` and the symbol-narrow `$`).

4. Percent pipe
* Breaking change
  - if you don't specify the number of digits to round to, the local format will be used (and it usually rounds numbers to 0 digits, instead of not rounding previously), e.g. `{{ 3.141592 | percent }}` will output `314%` for the locale `en-US` instead of `314.1592%` previously.
