It was a bit of a surprise Friday when we learned Facebook was relicensing React and other frameworks under the MIT license. While this doesn't include React Native for now Facebook has said that they'll be investigating other products in the future in their blog post on the matter. We feel comfortable using React Native with either license and hope this resolves whatever fears people had with using the +patents license.

Outside of our newsletter we updated AsyncImageAnimated to v3 with progressive and placeholder image support. Also be on the lookout for a post on our blog on gesture handling with react-native-gesture-handler. Have a great week!

Have a question you want answered in our React Native newsletter? Drop us a line [email protected] and we'll feature it in our next issue. ✌🏻
