In case you missed it, v6.14.1 was released last week, fixing a regression for certain git urls. We shipped a patch release (v6.14.2) earlier this week, landing a couple small docs and dependency updates.
You can update to the latest version of the CLI in the usual way:
$ npm install -g npm@latest

Bi-weekly deep dive
After getting some feedback in a recent Open RFC call, we’ve decided to schedule a bi-weekly “deep-dive” call that will take on one RFC, PR, issue or overall topic of discussion to allow for more in-depth conversations to happen.
The deep-dive topic will be chosen at the preceding Open RFC call for visibility (notably, the first call will be focused around “Workspaces”).
With that in mind, we’d like to poll the community to help choose the timing of this call. Let us know what works best for you!
