What’s new in React 18

About a month ago React 18 got announced, with these new features:

  2. Transitions — A new hook named useTransition() to tell your app which updates are urgent and which are not. Dmitri Pavlutin has more details on this for you to read.
  3. New Suspense SSR Architecture — Streaming HTML & Selective Hydration which improve the TTI.

In the video above, Arnaud carefully lays out what all these features are and how to use them.
