Need to Node – Volume 25

The new year is off to a great start with some fresh ideas from the open source community.

What's New in the Node.js Project

  • Tracy Lee (@ladyleet) posted an issue seeking input on the location of Node + JS Interactive 2019--possible locations include Denver, Seattle, Vancouver, and Toronto. Please make sure to comment before Jan 15.

  • Michael Dawson (via Sam Roberts) has proposed a regular cadence for Security releases, although “emergency” security updates would naturally still be addressed on an as-needed basis.

  • There’s an active discussion around a proposal from Shelley Vohr to create a NODE_MODULE_VERSION for major Electron releases.

  • If you’re fluent in Arabic, check out @IntersetllarClub/nodejs.ar where community members are invited to help translate the nodejs.org website.

  • A new proposal to automate PRs for code modifications has been shared by Charlie Robbins (@indexzero) in the package-maintenance project.
