Need to Node – Volume 24

With holidays right around the corner and the conference season ending, the Node.js organization is busy pushing out some end-of-year releases and queueing up some new projects and ideas for 2019.

What's New in the Node.js Project

  • The package maintenance team has kicked off a discussion around how “key packages” may be identified and/or defined by the WG.

  • Michaël Zasso created a citgm issue to track ecosystem modules expected to break in Node.js 12. The list includes modules which are skipped in citgm at present because they are broken (or have tests which are broken) in current versions of Node.

  • If you're looking to fill some downtime over the holidays, Node.js core has a backlog of orphan issues in need of an owner. Anyone interested in helping out is welcome!
