Facebook has released the latest beta of its React.js user interface library

Back in March, Facebook released React Native, which allows developers to build native iOS and Android apps, on GitHub.

Now, you can get your hands on the first beta of React v0.14, its Javascript library for creating user interfaces.

The social network made the announcement to coincide with the ReactEurope conference, which is currently taking place in Paris.

Facebook engineer Ben Alpert writes: “We think the true foundations of React are simply ideas of components and elements: being able to describe what you want to render in a declarative way.”

The beta is a prelude to major changes in the way React and React Native are implemented. If you’re making use of the libraries, definitely check out Alpert’s post.
