Upgrading to 4.2+
When upgrading the Sitecore Content Hub to 4.2 or a later version, there is a crucial point to remember. Starting in 4.2, the external components will be coded in React, migrating away from Knockout. This will improve the performance of these components and their pages.
What does this mean for you?
You can upgrade even if you don't migrate your components to React. However, it could impact your performance. Also, these components might not be supported in the future, and migration must be done then.
We suggest you migrate all the supported components as soon as possible to improve your performance and have standard upgrades from then on.
