The npm blog has been discontinued.

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

Release v7.1.0

Happy Friday! 🎉

This week’s release brings two new features, starting with a brand new command: npm set-script that helps you manage your package.json scripts - thanks to the community contribution from @Yash-Singh1 🏆

Also npm exec (no args) now triggers an interactive subshell that enables you to run installed binaries (similar to how scripts from your package.json can access binaries when running npm run).

Update now and give them a try:

npm install -g npm@7
