As a side note, upgrading these types to require TS 2.8+ is not a minor release, this has broken many projects which now need to pin to an older types/jasmine version.
This was a major breaking change and should of been a new major version number 😢

Pinning to 2.8.3 and leaving TS on a project that couldn't go beyond 2.5.3 worked.

Hi @burtek Thanks you very much for your support.I checked version history and i see they have updated to newer version yesterday because of that changes it was getting failed i went back and changed to 2.8.9 its working fine.

Not really. The package itself says it's for TS 2.8+, and some parts of syntax used in line 138 have been first introduced in TS 2.7 (i.e. Constant-named properties) and TS 2.8 (i.e. Conditional Types).

TS 2.6.2 is pretty old, with latest version of TS being 3.1.6

Ok, I will check if it's ok tu upgrade for new projects.
I've tested with typescript 3.1.6 and it works.

Thank you @burtek

@vnazarchukmob is it possible you have typescript installed both globally and locally and one of them is below 2.8?

@mowgliLab as I mentioned above, @types/jasmine is for TS 2.8+, while you're still using TS 2.7.x. Upgrade typescript to at least 2.8.0.
