React and React Native news

With so much going on in the community, it might be difficult to keep up with the new releases and announcements. Łukasz and Kuba come to the rescue with their roundup of React and React Native news. 

Vercel news

They begin by discussing a bunch of recent news from Vercel:

  • A foundational release of Next.js 13.4 that comes with stable App Router, Turbopack in beta (which you can listen more about in our Coffee Talk episode with Zack Jackson), and Server Actions in alpha. You can read more about the changes in the blog post discussing the release.
  • Three choices for databases in beta versions: Blob File Storage, Vercel KV with Redis under the hood, and Vercel Postgres.
  • CodeSpaces, enabling CMS edits directly from your UI and making managing your frontend projects easier at scale. It’s bound to foster collaboration and speed up development involving cross-functional teams. Learn more about this feature from Vercel themselves.
  • New security measures, including Vercel Secure Compute to Vercel Firewall.

Next, Łukasz and Kuba discuss the introduction of Canary release channel for React, which is to give the community the chance to incorporate specific new features into their systems before they are officially released in a stable version, as long as their design is nearly finalized.

The last piece of news in this episode is the release of React Native macOS: 0.71 in cooperation with Meta and Messenger Desktop engineers. If you want to learn more about the release, head over to the Microsoft blog post, and our Coffee Talk episode with Lorenzo Sciandra talking about React Native at Microsoft.

Hope you enjoyed our newsflash, stay tuned for the next one!
