If React Native is our choice, we have to be updated about every new feature it receives. Only this way we’ll keep our mobile apps up-to-date. We’re excited to announce React Native 0.61 with Fast Refresh, that’s totally a new reloading experience!
In the updated version, the problem of “live reloading” and “hot reloading” features was solved by combining them into one new feature called “Fast Refresh”. It was implemented from scratch and has such principles:
- It supports all React’s features, including function components and Hooks.
- It recovers after typos and other mistakes and makes a full reload again when needed.
- It is reliable enough to be on by default.
- It remounts class components without preserving their state.
The other features include fixed use_frameworks and CocoaPods support, adding of useWindowDimensions Hook, the new version was upgraded to 16.9.
Except for React Native 0.61 with Fast Refresh, to see all the updates, take a look at this material.
