Frequently Asked Questions 🙋‍♀️

Should I update to 1.16.1 version? Yes – this is the preferred version to be used in production. You can always use the latest SPFx version with the following command.

npm install @microsoft/generator-sharepoint@latest --global

Is any solution build with 1.16 usable in production? Yes. If your solution is not impacted related on the mentioned regressions, you can keep on using 1.16 version. We do though recommend always using the latest version for newly created solutions. You can for example use the CLI for Microsoft 365 to provide you the steps to update to the latest SPFx version.

Are there any security concerns with the 1.16 version solutions? No. Regressions were related on few specific functionalities and on the sppkg file compression. These are not security related issues.
