The new features are:
Built-In CSS Support for Global Stylesheets: Applications can now directly import
.cssfiles as global stylesheets.
Built-In CSS Module Support for Component-Level Styles: Leveraging the
.module.cssconvention, locally scoped CSS can be imported and used anywhere in your application.
- Improved Code-Splitting Strategy: The Google Chrome team heavily optimized Next.js' code-splitting strategy, resulting in significantly smaller client-side bundles. Furthermore, they've maximized HTTP/2 utilization to improve page load speed without hurting HTTP/1.1 performance.
- Catch-All Dynamic Routes: Next.js' Dynamic Routes now support catch-all routes, supporting a variety of new use-cases, e.g. CMS-powered websites.
