Release: npm@6.4.0

A new version has been released!

You can install it with npm i -g npm@latest or try it out with $ npx npm@latest ...!

As per our process, the prerelease cycle for 6.4.0 is now over and npm@6.4.0 is the latest and greatest in npm technology. :sunglasses:

latest: 6.4.0
next: 6.4.0




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!
