It’s been a while since I’ve done some React Native work, but the 0.69 release seems like a very welcome one: React 18, bundled Hermes, Fabric, TurboModules, and the JSI.
React Native 0.69 brings a ton of important improvements & updates to the table, with performance & memory usage being a major theme. Because some of the changes are opt-in, you’ll need to decide yourself which to enable and in what order. No matter which upgrade path or strategy you take, though, these changes bring exciting improvements to the React Native platform. It’s a great time to be a React Native developer!
