\* ⚡ Just want to remind you about the best way to start doing React, which is this fantastic course for beginners by Wes Bos (go google him). What's cool about it is that it's concise (less than 5 hours of video) and structured very well (split into 30 short videos). Go give it a try!
Next week, we are going to relicense our open source projects React, Jest, Flow, and Immutable.js under the MIT license. We're relicensing these projects because React is the foundation of a broad ecosystem of open source software for the web, and we don't want to hold back forward progress for nontechnical reasons.
We're excited to announce the release of React v16.0! Among the changes are some long-standing feature requests, including fragments, error boundaries, portals, support for custom DOM attributes, improved server-side rendering, and reduced file size.
With today's release of React 16, we've completely rewritten the internals of React while keeping the public API essentially unchanged. From an engineering standpoint, it's a bit like swapping out the engine of a running car: since hundreds of other companies (including Facebook) use React in production every day, we wanted to do the swap without forcing people to rewrite their components built in React.
