Removed: Element Recycling
DOM Element recycling will be removed in Preact 8.
This should have no effect on most applications. In fact, it fixes a number of known issues related to element state not being fully reset on reuse.
💡 Why? Many DOM properties are stateful, and trying to reset them all when recycling is a game of whack-a-mole. Preact's size makes it infeasible to use whitelists to address these issues, so recycling is being dropped. >
