Update React Dependencies

Description
React version was released 27 March 2019. The latest React Version, 16.13.1, has been stable since 19 March 2020. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/React_(web_framework)#History )

Can package.json be updated to latest? Or reduce the restrictions so other packages that require 16.13.1 can be used with Zoom?

Spotted this fork doing similar: https://github.com/PerchLive/websdk/commit/4fb13f789c49a21be392900098e2db9353f7d767

Current:
“react”: “16.8.6”,
“react-dom”: “16.8.6”,
“redux”: “3.7.2”,
“react-redux”: “7.1.0”,
“redux-thunk”: “2.2.0”

Desired:
“react”: “16.13.1”,
“react-dom”: “16.13.1”,
“redux”: “4.0.5”,
“react-redux”: “7.2.0”,
“redux-thunk”: “2.3.0”

Hey @rossy,

Are you requesting this for the Zoom Web SDK Sample App?

Thanks,
Tommy

Hi @tommy,
Apologies, I should have included the link. https://github.com/zoom/websdk React version is currently at 16.8.6, a version from March 2019.

Hey @rossy,

Thanks for clarifying! :slight_smile:

We will work on upping the version! (CS-2295)

Hi @tommy,
Perfect. Is there a link to public Trello board for CS-2295 that you can share, just to see progress?
Best,
Vinny

Hey @rossy,

Unfortunately no. It is an internal reference. I will keep you updated here though! :slight_smile:

Thanks,
Tommy

Hi @tommy,
Just checking in if any update on updating the react dependencies for https://github.com/zoom/websdk ?
Best,

Hey @rossy,

Unfortunately I do not have an update for you yet, but it is in the backlog to be updated.

Thanks,
Tommy

Hey @rossy,

After speaking with our Web SDK engineers, they said since there is no main feature update for react they do not want to update the version yet. We will consider updating the version when there is a major react release.

Thanks,
Tommy
