Does meteor framework 1.8 support latest version of angular like 8 or 7?

I am about to start a javascript project and planning to use meteor framework. Whilst playing around the basic app from meteor site, I noticed it uses angular version 1.7.8. I was wondering if its possible to use more higher version of angular like 6/7/8 ? Is this possible or its not supported or am I asking a stupid question ? Can anyone help me understand this please.
