I believe what’s being referred to in her post is NgModules, which were introduced as a breaking change in RC5, and don’t have any direct relation to ES6 modules.

Angular 2 was already component based, but NgModules provided an additional layer of abstraction above component sets. Which has benefits for compiling and lazy loading, but was a massive refactoring to come that late in the release candidate cycle.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
