I’d have to go with the new add library feature in the CLI. It makes a task that used to be challenging much more trivial now.

ng add(technically the CLI but still), and getting up to speed with latest Typescript especially and also RxJS.
Ivy and Elements sound very super interesting as well but neither is finished so they don’t count yet.

From v6: provideIn Services and ng update. From v6.1 the router scroll! 🙂

In Angular in general it would be the async pipe. In version 6.1 the scroll position history is pretty great as well =) What do you think?

Th new keyvalue pipe is pretty awesome. And I am really looking forward for the new Ivy renderer 🙂

For me it’s the “update” command, I’ve been involved in major projects where upgrading from Angular 2 to Angular 4 was a major headache – this helps!

Max Schwarzmüller as his courses were very helpful when I was starting out. I use WebStorm & it’s a whole other league to VS Code / Atom. Autocorrection & integration with TSLint, Git & Sonar make it ?
