This major release includes Flipper support by default, improved dark mode support, moving Apple TV to react-native-tvos, and more. See the blog post for all of the highlights.

This release comes in the midst of a global pandemic. We’re releasing this version today to respect the work of hundreds of contributors who made this release possible and to prevent the release from falling too far behind master. Please be mindful of the reduced capacity of contributors to help with issues and prepare to delay upgrading if necessary.

If you're upgrading, manual intervention may be required for your app. Please see the upgrade-helper for a detailed breakdown of the changes required and see this issue for known issues.

One known issue with workaround is regarding Android builds and APK size increases.

  • If isInteraction is not specified in the config, it would always default to true which would block interactions like VirtualizedList updates. This is generally not what you want with useNativeDriver since the animation won't be interrupted by JS. If something does end up interfering with an animation and causes frame drops, isInteraction can be set manually. (8f186b84ae by @sahrens)
