The npm blog has been discontinued.
Updates from the npm team are now published on the GitHub Blog and the GitHub Changelog.
As foretold by the prophesies, another weekly npm v7 beta is now available.
tl;dr - run
npm i -g npm@next-7 right now, and tell us about any problems you encounter with it.
This fixes the
npm view --json output, adds test coverage, and switches us from
leven for the “Did you mean…?” message.
It does not yet fix some of the other issues that early beta testers have helpfully reported to us:
- A race condition during configuration loading can lead to a “bad marker” error being thrown if there is a file at
/usr/local/lib/node_modules/npm/npmrc. (Which npm v6 puts there when it installs npm v7.)
- Unresolvable peer dependency conflicts are not reported very usefully.
package.jsonsets indentation style to two-spaces when saving dependencies.
- Fresh installs with old lockfiles can lead to missing executables and (if the lockfile is old enough!) even missing dependencies.
We expect these issues to be fixed in upcoming beta updates soon.
As always, please report any problems you encounter! We are grateful for your help in npm’s ongoing improvement.
