Need to Node - Volume 6

We’ve had a bit of a lull in the week leading up to a security release, with release of Node.js v10 and EOL of Node.js v4 fast approaching. The project continues to chug away at continued development, and several major changes coming shortly.

Here’s a recap of some of the highlights from the last week in Node.js:

What’s New in the Node.js Project

  • There’s an ongoing discussion in the Security WG about having a machine-readable resource that can tell end-users and developers the current minimum secure version of Node.js on every release line.
  • The Community Committee is digging deeper into its re-definition of membership and working on teasing out a definition of what it is to be a member.
  • The Modules Team is discussing a new proposal by Domenic Denicola for browsers to implement package name maps, which seems to go a long way toward resolving ESM compatibility.
  • The i18n Initiative is working on a continued audit of the localization groups from prior Node.js and io.js efforts.
  • The User Feedback initiative will be holding a public session with JavaScript and Node.js ecosystem tooling maintainers to begin a feedback loop on how the Node.js project is doing and what it could be doing better.
