Breaking Changes

  • React Native now uses Babel 6, props to Tadeu Zagallo for upgrading and thanks David Aurelio and Sebastian McKenzie for all the help! We've been using React Native with Babel 6 at Facebook for quite a while now. Nevertheless, please report any errors related to Babel, such as transforms for some JS features not working as expected and we'll fix them.
  • Touch events on Android now have coordinates consistent with iOS: 0c2ee5d
  • YellowBox enabled by default on iOS: 8ab5182
  • JS decorators won't work until T2645 lands in Babel. It's being worked on. The proposal for decorators is not final and therefore Babel 6 left decorator support out for now.
  • Exporting default class that extends a base class won't work due to Babel's T2694.
  • RCTSparseArray was replaced by NSDictionary. Modules using RCTSparseArray should update. fa0b45c
  • RCTWebViewExecutor was removed. 0764e4e
  • We've migrated all internal RN components to declare their propTypes inheritance explicitly in dd09c88. This allows for better control on which props can be used. In order to make third-party native components work you will need to add ...View.propTypes to the map of propTypes in the component definition (see dd09c88 for an example).
