We released a new major version of
gatsby-source-shopify 🎉 Thanks to the work of our community member Byron Hill the new version features a bunch of improvements:
- You can now query product videos or 3D models, in addition to product images.
- Variants, Images, etc. now keep the order in which you define them in the Shopify backend.
- Multiple metafield types were merged to one single metafield type (more alignment with Shopify’s admin API schema).
- You can now query presentment prices.
- Explicit type definitions with disabled type inference. Or in other words: You can have no products in your store or a bunch of fields that are
nullwithout breaking your schema or builds.
- The API schema nearly matches the Shopify admin API schema which means that for the most part you can refer to Shopify’s documentation.

The latest RC of React 18 introduced a breaking change in the SSR API. In this release we’re at 100% compatibility again. Right on time for the official React 18 release. Make sure to read How to Try React 18 in Gatsby to get started.
With React 18, you can start using Suspense, React.lazy and get your hands on the new concurrent mode to speed up your Gatsby website. More information can be found on the React blog
