Node.js v15.0.0 is here!

This week, Node.js, an Impact project at the OpenJS Foundation, shipped Node.js v15, a major release for the JavaScript server-side runtime.

The new release includes:

  • Abort Controller
  • N-API Version 7
  • npm 7
  • Throw on unhandled rejections
  • QUIC (experimental)
  • V8 8.6

Additional project news includes

  • Completion of the Node.js Contributors Survey to gather feedback on the contribution process to determine target areas for improvement.
  • big improvements to Node.js automation and tooling including the ability to kick off CI runs and land commits just by adding a GitHub label, making it easier for collaborators to manage the constant flow of Pull Requests.
  • The beginning of Next 10 Years of Node.js effort. The goal of this effort is to reflect on what led to success in the first 10 years of Node.js and set the direction for success in the next 10. One of the outcomes so far is that we’ve created a Technical Values document to guide our efforts.
