Welcome to the stable release of 0.59馃殌

Some of the major changes that this version brings:

  • React Hooks 馃帲
  • the CLI is extracted to this repository
  • quite a few new deprecated Components
  • a whole lot of QoL improvements on the native Android side (64 bits support via a new JSC, AppCompatActivity, etc) - some of which will be Breaking Changes (for brownfield apps) 馃挜

For a more complete picture on all the changes, you can read more in the dedicated blog post. Thanks to those who participated in the release candidate phase - and obviously to those who contributed with PRs to make this release possible 馃
