or via yarn:

V5 Upgrade

Version V5 contains seveal minor breaking changes, depending your current installation take such steps before upgrade:

  • If you are using rollup v1.x, then you'd better to stay on v4 of plugin. I officially stopped support v1 of rolloup myself. Some versions of 1.x will work without issues, but i stop testing myself or add any changes in this direction. If somebody wants to contibute in this direction - welcome.
  • If you use rollup v2.x and use gzipLength or brotliLengthupgrade to rollup 2.44 at least. In V5 i use provided by rollup api to get rendered module code for size estimations, instead of original sources as it was before.
  • In all other case just update the plugin.

To upgrade plugin change import/require statement like it is shown in installation section.
