Need to Node – Volume 12

Change is in the air for Node.js! On top of the recent release of Node.js 10, the project itself has also had some updates across the board. Here’s a quick recap of just a few of the highlights from the last two weeks in Node.js:

What’s New in the Node.js Project

  • The Benchmarking WG is discussing a reported dip in the performance of cached requires that has been apparently occurring for some time now.
  • node-core-utils@1.12.0 shipped with some new functionality!
  • The Berlin Collaborator’s Summit is right around the corner, with quite a bit of work being put into it by various parties.
  • The Security WG is discussing how they can go about better reporting CVEs now that the Node.js project has a CVE block rather than reporting it to Mitre and hoping they assign a CVE in an appropriate timeframe.
  • The Build WG is discussing the possibility of integrating Jenkins and the new GitHub Checks API, pending some exploration into the work that needs to be done.
  • The i18n initiative has begun using the GitHub Projects feature to manage their progress, and is seeing some level of success with it already!
