Problem Recoil 0.0.8

Point of SSR Problem

For applications that use NextJS, Gatsby and so on in SSR, Recoil version 0.0.8 cause the following error in server side.

ReferenceError: window is not defined
    at Object.<anonymous> (C:\home\pjs\file-translate\node_modules\recoil\dist\recoil.development.js:591:3)

Some people advised the way to force a solution, but the development team recognized it.

So it's best to drop the version to 0.0.7 and wait for version 0.0.9. It is expensive to fix the source code for a specific bug that is likely to be fixed.

Recoil is so convenient that I want it to stabilize quickly. The following article is detailed about Recoil.
