Starting from version 0.68, React Native provides the New Architecture, which offers developers new capabilities for building highly performant and responsive apps. Visit Why a New Architecture to learn more about what drove the decision to re-architect, and the benefits it provides.
In order to achieve these benefits, we had to rethink how Native Modules and Native Components work. This led us to develop the Pillars of the New Architecture:
- TurboModules, a framework to support efficient and flexible integration with native code
- Fabric renderer and components, which offer improved capabilities, cross-platform consistency, and performance in rendering

For app developers
To create a new app using the New Architecture, head over to Creating a New Architecture App, which will get you up and running in a few quick steps with the new app template.
To migrate an existing app to the New Architecture, follow Adopting the New Architecture.
For library maintainers
First, read up on the core concepts outlined in the Pillars section.
Then, for a how-to guide on supporting the New Architecture, check out the Migration guide.
