    Hello!

    DynamicBuffers and ComponentType.FixedArray seem to offer similar functionality: Adding a collection of structs to your Entity, which act like an array of Components.

    Are there important differences between these two approaches? Are they intended to be used in different ways?

    Thanks!

    DynamicBuffer it’s replacement for FixedArrays, FA was replaced many monthes ago in 0.0.10 preview.

    Thanks a lot for the info. I've been away for about a year, and it can be difficult to keep track of what's still supported.

    Much appreciated!

    I think this will be like almost learning from beginning. ;)
    There was some great changes along the way.

    Just to add, injection is also going to be depreciated.
