npm@6.14.0: Support for multiple funding entries 🎉

Earlier this week, we shipped npm@6.14.0! This lands support for multiple funding sources (contributed by Jordan Harband and Ruy Adorno), along with bug fixes and dependency updates.

Read more about the release here.

You can update to the latest version of the CLI in the usual way:

$ npm install -g npm@latest

npm workspaces

The discussion regarding workspaces has been a hot topic in our recent Open RFC meetings, and we’d like your input! Join the conversation here and let us know your thoughts.

TypeScript 3.8 is here

TypeScript 3.8 brings a lot of new features, including type-only imports/exports, private fields, ‘export * as ns’ syntax, top-level ‘await’, convert to template string, call hierarchy and more. Read all about it!

Get it via:

npm install -g typescript

Project highlight: actions-toolkit@3.0.0

actions-toolkit@3.0.0 (a toolkit for building GitHub Actions in Node.js) is now available! This version introduces features that wrap the official actions/* libraries, and changes the direction of the library to be “an opinionated alternative.” Learn more here.

Access it via:

$ npm install actions-toolkit

Note, the alternative library GitHub Actions ToolKit makes many features optional in the interest of performance, so you may prefer to use it instead of this library.
