Today, we are publishing the first Release Candidate for React 17. It has been two and a half years since the previous major release of React, which is a long time even by our standards! In this video, I will shortly describe the role of this major release, what changes you can expect in it, and how you can try this release

We encourage you to try React 17.0 Release Candidate soon and raise any issues for the problems you might encounter in the migration. Keep in mind that a release candidate is more likely to contain bugs than a stable release, so don't deploy it to production yet.
