The fastest Gatsby, yet.
With Gatsby 5’s new Slice API for supercharged component builds and Partial Hydration to speed up your site performance — updating your website and content at scale has never been easier.
npm i gatsby@latest
Gatsby can build and ship individual pieces (or Slices) of your site and only deploy those that changed. Headers, footers, and layouts no longer need a full rebuild!
Partial Hydration (Beta)
Search Engine Optimization is tricky, but the Gatsby Head API brings native and intuitive SEO to your site.
With a site of our size, minor changes like updating a footer or marketing banner used to result in a complete rebuild of our site. With Slices in Gatsby 5 speeding up Incremental Builds, we’re expecting to save hours of time waiting for builds every week.

But wait, there’s more.
GraphiQL released a major version earlier this year, and Gatsby ships with GraphiQL v2 by default. With a polished UI, query tabs, dark mode, and Gatsby-specific code samples, developers can work with Gatsby’s data layer in brand new ways.
With gatsby-plugin-mdx, MDX v2 is supported by default. All of the speed, bundle size, and syntax improvements for MDX v2 can be taken advantage of in Gatsby.
Images are typically the largest files on a site and delay page load significantly while they are pulled over the network. With Image CDN, image processing can be done outside of your builds so you can ship your content even faster.
TypeScript + TypeGen
Gatsby provides an integrated TypeScript experience out of the box, similar to an IDE. By auto-generating and validating types for your data, you can have more confidence in your builds.
When a data change happens through your CMS, the Gatsby Cloud Incremental Builds feature will rebuild only what’s necessary. This gives you up to 1000x faster builds and an average build time of less than 10 seconds.
Following the success of Incremental Builds, Incremental Deploys only deploys the pages and routes that changed. Incremental Deploys yields 10x faster deploy speed and can significantly reduce your average build time.
