SharePoint Framework v1.7.1 release notes

This release is primarily a bug fix release to address few regressions and missed bugs that were introduced in the 1.7 release. This didn't contain any critical issues, we rather wanted to fix few inconveniences with the latest release.

Released: December 18, 2018

Upgrading projects from v1.7 to v1.7.1

In the project's package.json file, identify all SPFx v1.7 packages. For each SPFx package:

  1. Uninstall the existing v1.7 package:

    npm uninstall @microsoft/{spfx-package-name}@1.7
  2. Install the refreshed v1.7.1 package:

    npm install @microsoft/{spfx-package-name}@ --save --save-exact


The CLI for Microsoft 365 provides an easy step-by-step guidance to upgrade your solutions to latest SharePoint Framework version.
