react-boilerplate v3.7.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2018-10-25 // about 1 year ago
  • 🆕 News

    🚀 Welcome to a new React Boilerplate release with improvements aplenty, bug fixes and major dependency upgrades! Big thanks to @gretzky, @justingreenberg, @jwinn and everyone who helped review and submit PRs for this release!

    ⬆️ For existing projects, the only way to upgrade from 3.6.0 is to manually apply the changes from #2403 to your project. Please be careful when doing so as it isn't officially supported and could break things on your end.

    ⚡️ Next steps will include re-thinking immutability in the store (RFC @ #2092), re-organizing docs, saga improvements, smart bundling and plenty more. Please keep the PRs coming. And if you're up for it, remember that you can use the dev branch to test all the latest updates and report bugs!
