Release: v7.0.0-beta.9

Heading into the holiday (in the USA at least) weekend with a fresh new npm v7 beta for you all. You can get it in the traditional way:

npm i -g npm@next-7

This adds explanatory text for ERESOLVE errors, because “unable to resolve dependency tree” was just not as helpful as we aim to be. 😅

It also adds the ability to try to do the right thing in most cases for conflicting peerDependencies when you set --force, and fixes up several other bugs reported throughout our beta process.

Thank you all for your continued help with reporting issues on the beta! We expect to have a release candidate for you soon.

v7.0.0-beta.9 (2020-09-04)
