When using tabGroup.activeTab.open, you get the native slide in behaviour for the new window. However, when calling tabGroup.activeTab.close you do not get the slide out behaviour for the old window, it just closes the old window. This has started in 3.0.0 since updated.

    Would you mind providing a test case that shows this error? From here I can confirm that this is indeed a bug and report to engineering. Thank you.

    Hi James, We have not heard back from you since you posted the issue. Not sure if this is still throwing error in your app. If so, please send us a test case so that we can take next necessary step to fix. If we don't hear back, we will assume the issue is no longer valid and close it.
