React InstantSearch v5.0.0-beta.0 is out πŸŽ‰

Hello everyone! :slightly_smiling_face:

We are very happy to announce that we released the v5.0.0-beta.0 of React InstantSearch. This version introduces some major changes, here is the main ones:

  • Complete revamp of the HTML output of most widgets. The goal of this release is to provide improved semantics to our users.

  • New CSS naming convention which will be reused across all InstantSearch libraries. This will enable the possibility to develop cross-libraries CSS themes easily.

  • Alignment on naming for widgets names & attributes

You can find the full migration guide from v4 to v5 on our documentation. This version will stay in beta for the next two weeks, afterwards if we don’t have any blockers it will be release as stable.

If you have any troubles with the migration process or have a feedbacks on this beta version please share it with us on Discourse or Github.
