Changes to Release Schedule

This post is written by Shelley Vohr and originally appeared on the Node.js website blog.

The Node.js project will be adjusting its release cadence in response to adjusted work schedules.

The stability and reliability of our release lines is tantamount, and as we respond to the shifting situation around us, and the global pandemic, we feel that Node.js users will be more effectively served by this new schedule. Updates to individual release lines are detailed below.

v10.x

The Maintenance date for v10.x has been pushed back to 2020-05-19, and there may now be another Semver-Patch release for the v10.x line before this line enters Maintenance.

v12.x

The next planned release of v12.x will now be on 2020-04-07.

We have specifically delayed the Semver-Minor releases of v12.x which will now occur on the following dates:

  • 12.17.0 on 2020-05-26
  • v12.18.0 on 2020-08-25

v12.x remains slated to enter Maintenance on 2020-10-20, but this date is now subject to change as deemed appropriate by the Release Team and with appropriate notice.

v13.x

v14.x

At this point in time, v14.x is still planned to enter LTS on 2020-10-20, but this date is now subject to change as deemed appropriate by the Release Team and with appropriate notice.

Node.js is a collaborative open source project dedicated to building and supporting the Node.js platform. https://nodejs.org/en/
