Microsoft’s React Native extension is at version 0.62 released last February. This version is fully updated from the latest version of React Native Core. Version 0.61 of the tool reduces the steps needed to start its implementation on Windows. It also induces a performance improvement thanks to its threading model. “We have updated the host and instance infrastructure in React Native for Windows to provide a more robust and consistent threading model,” the development team wrote in a post.
Since this update, the extension natively supports SVG files. For this, you don’t need any separate component or module, just use the Image component in your React Native application and when you target Windows, your SVG files will be loaded and used properly. It also introduces support for dual-screen devices. This means that React Native developers will be able to be easily notified when their application is displayed on one or both screens.
The API automatically adjusts to the seam allowance of the hinge in the center so that no information from the application is lost. In addition, several other changes are planned in the development roadmap of the tool since February :
