This week's issue features a blog post announcing the release of Ignite 8.0: "Maverick" and an article about troubleshooting ProGuard issues on Android.

Be sure to check out this issue's featured Top Pick: a major update to Ignite 8.0 (code named "Maverick") has just been released! The world’s best React Native starter kit just got incredibly better, via months of active contributions! In this blog post, Infinite Red's Founder/CTO Jamon Holmgren provides an overview of its many enhancements and features.

Back in June 2022, we published a React Native Radio podcast episode all about ProGuard,  a Java byte shrinker/optimizer for your Android apps. In this issue, another Top Pick delves into how to avoid some ProGuard issues on Android that you may encounter.

I hope you enjoy this issue of the React Native Newsletter!
