React 16 was released this week with a host of other frameworks having updates as a result. We'll be taking a look at one of those in this issue but I would check your dependencies for updates. If you had concerns about being on a beta build of React in React Native now may be the time to upgrade!

Additionally Facebook continues to evaluate their products and their licenses as GraphQL was relicensed under MIT this week. React Native still hasn't been evaluated but we hope to see some news here in the coming 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. ✌🏻
