If it looks like a function…
Calling a component in Reagent looks a lot like a function call. Now it also works like one.

Reagent already separates state from components. Now they are also separated in time.
From version 0.3.0, changes in application state (as
represented by Reagent’s
atoms) are no longer
rendered immediately to the DOM. Instead, Reagent waits until
the browser is ready to repaint the window, and then all the
changes are rendered in one single go.
