We're working from home today as our new iPhone X arrives and we have to be home to sign. I'm looking forward to the new gesture based interface, Face ID, and animojis. Be sure to use the iPhone X simulator to check your apps for irregularities and have a great week!

Have a question you want answered in our React Native newsletter? Drop us a line and we'll feature it in our next issue. ✌🏻

React Native 0.50

React Native October 0.50 was released this past week with some breaking changes and improvements. You can get the full release notes here, but here are some highlights:

  • <Image> with nested content is no longer supported. Looking into <ImageBackground> instead if this is something you did in our app.
  • Overflow hidden is fixed on Android. πŸŽ‰
  • Android Oreo (8.0) support.
  • Support for null titles in AlertIOS.
