    React Select v2 and the future

    In December last year, over one in seven people installing react-dom also installed react-select.

    The orginal project had grown way beyond Jed's original use-case and had become one of the most popular react components: with nearly a million downloads per month.

    In January this year, Jed and the team undertook a huge body of work to modernise react-select and to make it even more successful.

    In July this year, 6 months, 11 Alpha releases, 7 Beta releases, well over 120 features, and 2 breaking features later saw the release of version 2.0.0

    What's ahead?
