Both releases include over a dozen bug fixes, countless doc updates, and 1.5.6 additionally has a few small features and performance improvements. We (Georgios in particular) have also updated the official tutorial to use the `component()` helper introduced in 1.5, which showcases how to build component-tree apps in the style of Angular 2.
See the details in the CHANGELOG at https://github.com/angular/angular.js/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md#156-arrow-stringification-2016-05-27 and
If you haven't upgraded to 1.5.x yet, we encourage you to do so .
We have currently no plans to release further 1.4.x versions, as we are working on 1.5 and 1.6 in the next months.
Finally, thanks to the 56 developers who contributed to these releases!
