Learn about our new unpublish policy

npm has grown a lot over the past 10 years, and rapid growth means lots of support requests! One of our most common support requests is to unpublish packages that have aged out of our 72 hour grace period. In the past, we have addressed these requests on a case-by-case basis. Starting today, you can now do this yourself if your package meets specific criteria. Learn more >>

It’s npm v6.13.7!

There is a new release of the npm CLI: v6.13.7! Read all about it here.

You can update to the latest version with the following command:

$ npm install -g npm@latest
