SharePoint Framework v1.12 - What’s in the latest Update of SPFx?

In this post, I'll summarize what you can find, and share some additional details I found after spending some time picking apart this latest release of SPFx.

This week, Microsoft released v1.12 of the SharePoint Framework (SPFx). In this post, I’ll summarize what you can find, and share some additional details I found after spending some time picking apart this latest release.

Danger: SharePoint Framework v1.12 deprecated - Do NOT Install
Just five (5) days after the release of SPFx v1.12, Microsoft deprecated v1.12 it and is advising customers to not install it. Instead, stay with SPFx v1.11. Quite a few bugs were found after the release, including a few that are causing significant issues. Microsoft is working to resolve these issues and will publish an subsequent release, v1.12.1, soon.

Microsoft is highlighting a handful of changes in the v1.12 release, but some of these changes are not related to the actual generator update. Rather they’re changes that have been rolled out to the SharePoint Online service.
