The npm blog has been discontinued.

Updates from the npm team are now published on the GitHub Blog and the GitHub Changelog.

v4.4.4 (2017-03-10)

😩😤😅 Okay! We have another next release for ya today. So, yes! With v4.4.3 we fixed the bug that made bundled scoped modules uninstallable. But somehow I overlooked the fact that we: A) were using these and B) that made upgrading to v4.4.3 impossible. 😭

So I’ve renamed those two scoped modules to no longer use scopes and we now have a shiny new test to ensure that scoped modules don’t creep into our transitive deps and make it impossible to upgrade to npm.

(None of our woes applies to most of you all because most of you all don’t use bundled dependencies. npm does because we want the published artifact to be installable without having to already have npm.)
