It looks amazing but look like the 3x faster Fast Refresh and ~5x faster builds doesn´t support custom babel and styled-components yet it seems. Also everything that has to do with React 18 is not really useful yet, like that is still in alpha so.... not much things in this release that are useful to me yet... kind of disappointed really even the big things like Middleware don´t seem production ready yet. Or tried to there own hosting company....

Also what is AVIF browser support like this days?

I did check the details and you can't use Rust if you use anything that need change the Babel configuration, it's right here "If you have an existing Babel configuration, you will automatically be opted out. We have plans to port parsing for popular libraries like styled-components, emotion, and relay soon."

The new React Docs are already online finally and no before it will be release React 18 need first release a beta and later a release candidate, and there is no grantee all features will be in the final release
