Release: npm@6.4.0-next.0

A new prerelease of the npm cli has been tagged!

You can install it with npm i -g npm@next or try it out with npx npm@next …

Prereleases are promoted to latest after a week if no serious issues stop them. Please give it a whirl and tell us what you think!

latest: 6.3.0
next: 6.4.0-next.0

Oh and… we’re gonna start including changelogs in here directly, instead of linking to the blog! That should help center our activity around more :)




A very special dependency update event! Since the release of node-gyp@3.8.0, an awkward version conflict that was preventing request from begin flattened was resolved. This means two things:

  1. We’ve cut down the npm tarball size by another 200kb, to 4.6MB
  2. npm audit now shows no vulnerabilities for npm itself!

Thanks, @rvagg!
