What’s New in the Node.js Project

  • Node v13.10.0 (Current) Released. Notable changes include: introducing async-context API and support passing generator functions into pipeline() in streams.
  • Find out the pull request for Node.js Version 14.0.0 🎉
  • Check out the latest Node.js 14 - V8 version roadmap which will be released on 21st of April and promoted to LTS on October 20th!
  • There is a WIP in the libuv repo to add API for measuring event loop idle time intending to having a very accurate measurement of idle time spent in the kernel's event provider. This allows retrieval of the idle time from another thread to allow more accurate time-series data collection (instead of only collecting the data when the event loop can process a callback).
