3 days ago

See Upgrade guide from version 6.x to 7.x.

This is one of the biggest update - for React-PDF and for me personally. React-PDF has been rewritten from scratch using TypeScript and React Hooks. I've put a tremendous amount of effort to modernize the package without introducing any major breaking changes. If, however, something have slipped through 137 unit tests we have, please let me know. I hope you will like it.
