On Next.js Conference, Next.js is announcing a new compiler, routing and rendering infrastructure, and component toolkit. These improvements make it easier to be dynamic without limits, and are making the most ambitious applications possible easy to build.
Today's keynote at Next.js' annual conference was about the transition to Native Rust-powered tooling for the compiler infrastructure of Next.js projects. Turbopack, a rust-based successor to webpack, was introduced and shown to be 20 times faster than webpack for a really large application. Learn more about Turbopack here.
Next.js 13 introduces significant improvements to the image components, including performance improvements, better developer experience, and the ability to customize your brand's fonts easily and without layout shifts.
Next.js 13 includes a new image component that requires an ALT tag, making the framework more accessible for users with screen readers and other assistive technologies. Additionally, the framework's core web vitals are being looked at as ways of improving performance for all Next.js apps.
The next.js conference keynote mentioned new developments such as the image component, which requires an ALT tag to improve accessibility, and the addition of support for web vitals in the Dev Tools. Brian announced that he has been involved in building some examples and getting feedback on early Next.js releases.
Next.js speakers discuss their vision for the future of web development, emphasizing accessibility and performance. They discuss their project Learn to Loom, which aimed to make learning Bloom easy and efficient.
Next.js is a new framework that aims to be more compatible with older code bases and easier to migrate to. The team is working on updates to the docs and the beta version of the website is now live.

Next.js creator Marcus talks about the advantages of server components over web components and how they plan to make Tailwind CSS support available soon.
The Next.js conference keynote discussed the new architecture for app development, which uses server components to do b testing and experimentation. The biggest missing piece is the cache API, which is being worked on. There are also plans for the accessibility features, which will help people with screen readers.
