Things like moving view files that other developers will surely be using are large breaking changes. For example: we've moved tons of views including things like: 'umb-property' ... I guarantee developers are using these views.

it is not a breaking change to move a directive view - you reference a directive through its name configured in angular, not the file itself, the directives are still named the same and therefore accessible like before.

ah yes good point :) in any case still need to review what might have been broken
