Renaming AngularJS group and AngularJS topic to simply "Angular": What are your thoughts?

This article explains it better, but the gist of it is that the developers are dropping the "JS" so we might as well too, and the version number (Angular 1, Angular 2, etc) really only needs to be referenced when talking about a specific feature in a specific version of Angular, or when reporting a bug ("I found this bug while using Angular 2.3.1..." for example).
It's not a huge deal...but all the cool kids are doing it ;)
What say you?

(I say "yea," in case it wasn't clear)

Looking around at other frameworks that certainly makes sense.  I refer to it as Angular and not AngularJS, synonymous meaning.

in comparison, knockoutjs has to retain the js to give it meaning.  In context of a web dev discussion we may refer to it as "knockout" though you still have to be pretty specific when dropping the js.

Another example is CakePHP.  There are major differences between v2 and v3, yet it's referred to without the version.

so the TL;DR is 'yea'

Yeah, I agree.

Don't know if I can rename the group but if everyone is in favor I'll have a look at it.

Hi Rob,
I think I can't... and the name of the group is also present on the URL so I don't know if that will "screw" something else, elsewhere.

Give it a try :p

I stand corrected! The name is greyed out... 😕

I'll contact the office and see what they can do
