I've noticed upon switching the lamp types in the new release candidate for Blender 2.8, that the size property for the Sun type is missing. Is that feature removed?

It looks like it's now the Angle value:

    $\begingroup$ I'm not sure "angle" is more accurate: I guess it refers to how the rays are deflected by atmosphere conditions, but actually it's not the way we naturally understand "angle" when we hear it, we rather think about the angle of the sun in the 3D view, but this is set by the rotation of the object in the scene, not by this value... But Size was not better it's true... $\endgroup$ – moonboots Jul 15 at 6:42
