react-native v0.62.0-rc.2 Release Notes

Release Date: 2020-02-13 // 7 days ago
  • THIS IS A RELEASE CANDIDATE : this means it's not stable yet, so proceed with care.

    🚀 Please only upgrade or create new apps with 0.62.0-rc.2 if you'd like to help us test this before the stable release - which would be super useful 🤗

    ✅ To test it, run:

    npx react-native init RN062 --version 0.62.0-rc.2
    

    RC2 introduces the new LogBox experience behind a feature flag. To try it out, add the following to your index.js file:

    require('react-native').unstable\_enableLogBox()
    

    👀 RC2 also introduces Flipper integration. For details and to report issues, see this issue.


    🚀 This release will be quite massive (there are around 1200 commits of delta between this version and 0.61!) so we don't have the changelog ready yet (draft PR) - it will be fully ready for when we will publish 0.62.0.

    🚀 You can participate in the conversation on the RC status this issue for updates, where you can post your bug reports and cherry-pick suggestions.


    🚀 You can find the whole changelog history over at react-native-releases.
