Why is Expo using such an old version of RNW?

Seems Expo projects as of Oct 2021 are using “react-native-web”: “~0.13.12”, while the latest version is 0.17.5.

I’m running into some issues that have been fixed since 0.13.12 such as lack of aspectRatio support (see [fix] Allow CSS aspectRatio · necolas/react-native-web@c8e8094 · GitHub).

Just wondering if there’s a major reason for Expo to not upgrade RNW, since I’m exploring manually bumping the version in my own projects.

Looks like Expo SDK 43 will use 0.17.1:

I suggest you upgrade to SDK 43 beta like this:

npx cross-env EXPO_BETA=1 expo upgrade
