Today we're sending out React 15.6.2. In 15.6.1, we shipped a few fixes for change events and inputs that had some unintended consequences. Those regressions have been ironed out, and we've also included a few more fixes to improve the stability of React across all browsers.
Additionally, 15.6.2 adds support for the controlList attribute, and CSS columns are no longer appended with a px suffix.
We recommend using Yarn or npm for managing front-end dependencies. If you're new to package managers, the Yarn documentation is a good place to get started.
To install React with Yarn, run:
yarn add [email protected]^15.6.2 [email protected]^15.6.2 
To install React with npm, run:
npm install --save [email protected]^15.6.2 [email protected]^15.6.2 
We recommend using a bundler like webpack or Browserify so you can write modular code and bundle it together into small packages to optimize load time.
Remember that by default, React runs extra checks and provides helpful warnings in development mode. When deploying your app, make sure to use the production build.
In case you don't use a bundler, we also provide pre-built bundles in the npm packages which you can include as script tags on your page:
  • React
    Dev build with warnings: react/dist/react.js
    Minified build for production: react/dist/react.min.js
  • React with Add-Ons
    Dev build with warnings: react/dist/react-with-addons.js
    Minified build for production: react/dist/react-with-addons.min.js
  • React DOM (include React in the page before React DOM)
    Dev build with warnings: react-dom/dist/react-dom.js
    Minified build for production: react-dom/dist/react-dom.min.js
  • React DOM Server (include React in the page before React DOM Server)
    Dev build with warnings: react-dom/dist/react-dom-server.js
    Minified build for production: react-dom/dist/react-dom-server.min.js
We've also published version 15.6.2 of react and react-dom on npm, and the react package on bower.
