Performance Improvements

Breaking Changes

utils/utils is just Utils

import { layout } from '@nativescript/core/utils/utils'

import { Utils } from '@nativescript/core'


This affects some plugins. If you use a plugin that has this problem, you can do the following:

1. Temporarily add a quick webpack alias to ease:

webpack.chainWebpack(config => {
    config.resolve.alias.set('@nativescript/core/utils/utils', '@nativescript/core/utils');
    config.resolve.alias.set('tns-core-modules/utils/utils', '@nativescript/core/utils');
    config.resolve.alias.set('tns-core-modules', '@nativescript/core');

2. Submit a pull request to the plugin author.

Weak Ref type

Core uses the latest WeakRef type, you can update tsconfig to the latest targets.

"compilerOptions": {
  "target": "es2017",
  "lib": ["es6", "dom"],

"compilerOptions": {
  "target": "es2020",
  "lib": ["esnext", "dom"],
