Bleeding Edge: Want to try new features as soon as possible? Install
gatsby@next and let us know
if you have any issues.
For our new
gatsby-plugin-image we also introduced
StaticImage to allow quick usage of the image pipeline for images that are the same every time. But it comes with some restrictions that you need to think of.
To make using
StaticImage easier the previous error message was adjusted to now also show the offending code and link to the relevant documentation.
Bonus: If you want to use
StaticImage as a background image, read our newly added docs.
With the release of Gatsby v3 we made the choice to import CSS modules as ES Modules by default. This allows better treeshaking and smaller files as a result — however, when using third-party packages that still expect CommonJS you’ll need to work around this behavior to be able to migrate to Gatsby v3.
Together with v3.2 also new minors of
gatsby-plugin-stylus were released. You’re now able to override the
namedExport option of
css-loader inside each plugin.
Please see the migration guide for an example.

Remark has had a significant major upgrade recently and changed the underlying parser. The ecosystem seems to have almost caught up since then, so we are going to release a new major version for all remark-related plugins soon.
We tried to make the upgrade effortless but there could still be subtle differences in output and edge cases. So please try pre-release versions of those plugins and let us know if you notice any inconsistencies or bugs.
Install the following canary versions of all remark packages that you have in your
