  • πŸ”§ Redux DevTools now defaults to false in the console, in order to prevent random crashes of the extension. To activate it, set { devTools: true } in the interpreter options:
// default: { devTools: false }
interpret(machine, { devTools: true });
  • ⏹ Activities are no longer started in transient states. This is because transient states are essentially zero-time, since statecharts should transition to the resolved state immediately, so the activities would be started and stopped in the same microstep anyway.
  • πŸ› nextEvents will now be properly populated in State objects when transitioning from a state value rather than an existing State object (or when restoring a saved state).
  • ℹ️ Action implementations can now read the current state (this should not be a common use-case):
actions: {
  log: (ctx, e, { action, state }) => {
    console.log(state); // logs the State instance
  • ⬆️ TypeScript version bumped up to 3.3.3333
  • ❌ Ever experience those annoying errors about sending events to an uninitialized service? Maybe you forgot to .start it, or maybe you know it will be initialized and something out of your control (e.g., React's rendering) initializes the service right after you send an event to it. Now, events are deferred by default and will queue up in the uninitialized service until the service is .start()-ed... and then the events are processed. A warning will still show up to let you know that the service wasn't initialized.
    • If you prefer the original behavior, set interpret(machine, { deferEvents: false }) in the interpreter options.
  • πŸš₯ Services will now resolve the State (or state value) that they are started with, which means you can:
// Start a service from a restored state
someService.start(State.from({ bar: 'baz' }))

// Or from a plain state value
someService.start({ bar: 'baz' });

// Even if the state value is unresolved!
// (assume 'baz' is the initial state of 'bar')
someService.start('bar'); // resolves to State.from({ bar: 'baz' })
  • πŸ“ŠState changes now properly detect context changes. #397
  • πŸ”ƒ Relative child transitions that are external ({ internal: false }) now properly exit and reenter the parent state before transitioning to the child state; .e.g, { target: '.child', internal: false } will now behave like { target: 'parent.child' }. #376
  • βŒ›οΈ Delayed transitions are now properly canceled after a service is stopped.
  • βž• An awesome React calculator demo based on the original calculator statechart by Ian Horrocks was added to the docs. Thanks, Mukesh Soni!
  • πŸ™ If an invoked Promise throws, it will only send an event if the Promise wasn't canceled. #379
