A new version has been released! You can install it with
npm i -g npm@latest or try it out with
npx npm@latest ...
This release fixes a few annoying issues that y’all have reported on here that I wanted to call out.
The second is that Visual Studio 2019 support is added with the update to node-gyp. Since node-gyp is used in a lot of npm’s submodules, it was a bit of a chore to get it all wrapped up. Thanks to @irega and @shadowspawn for helping to get that over the finish line.
The v6 line is moving into bugfix and LTS mode while we get to work on the tree-managing refactor for v7 which will improve
npm link, make
package-lock.json files more consistent, and make
workspaces trivial to implement, and assist in integrating
tink. Expect a proper roadmap post in the next week or so, and relatively modest weekly-to-biweekly releases to fix bugs in npm v6 for stability and security, but not much else.
