NCM Desktop Beta Update – August 29th

Happy to share that we’ve shipped our first update to the NCM Desktop Beta that includes a variety of squashed bugs, minor tweaks, and a few dependency updates. This is the first set of post-launch updates and changes, while beginning to plan out the next few major feature releases around NCM.

What’s New?

Major updates:

  • Patch suggestion links on vulnerable modules in the module details screen to now link to the module’s suggested patch version on npm
  • Update to Electron 2.0.8, both as a resolution to the publicly disclosed Web Preferences Vulnerability

Minor updates:

  • Make compliance terminology more consistent by renaming all instances of "Uncompliant" to "Noncompliant"
  • Fix bug where after canceling the Add Project dialog we would should a success message nevertheless
  • Prevent login screens from going into full screen, in which case the design would break
  • Fix a bug where you couldn't re-add a project if you manually had deleted its .npmrc file
