Upgrade to React Native 0.59

Hi all,

Firstly, apologies if I’m posting this in the wrong project. I just assumed this is relevant to Expo-CLI, as that seems to be the component of Expo that deals with installing packages.

Does anyone know if there is a plan to upgrade Expo-CLI to the latest version of React Native - 0.59? I only ask because I would love to start using the latest features, such as Hooks.

Many thanks for reading, and thanks to all contributors for your excellent work on the Expo product, which I am enjoying using thus-far.


Hey @conwy,

Happy you’re enjoying using the Expo tools! We love to hear that :slight_smile:

Anyways, our next SDK release should be including support for RN 0.59 and hooks (in the future, you can look at our feature requests page to find this info).

Make sure you are subscribed to our blog Exposition and following the official Expo twitter account as these two platforms are where we make all major announcements, so you’ll hear about the next SDK release as soon as you can!

Thanks again!
