Last Week in Node.js Working Groups - January 1st, 2018

Due to the holiday season, we’ve not published a Last Week in Node.js for a few weeks - so, this week will cover some of the highlights in the Node.js project over the holiday. There is a lot that happened, covering everything from new programs from the Security WG to a redesign of the Node.js website.

📰 News from the Working Groups

  • The Security WG is continuing its push on the Early Disclosure Program, looking for more participants that would benefit from building Node.js before security releases.
