Changed Events

The following event has changed.

The critical update that enables a new URL format for Lightning Experience and the Salesforce mobile app changes how URLs impact navigation in an app. Changes to the hash fragment in a URL are central for navigation in the old URL format. The hash fragment is not as central for navigation with the new URL format.
The aura:locationChange tracks changes to the hash fragment in a URL. The event hasn’t changed, but it’s not useful for tracking navigation with the new URL format.
