  • Node.js ^8.10.0 and NPM ^5.6.0 (the version of NPM that comes with Node.js 8.10.0) are now the minimum required versions. Node.js 6 is end-of-life in April of 2019 (next month). Node.js 8.9.0 was the first version of Carbon, the Node.js 8 LTS, however the ecosystem has fairly well standardized on 8.10.0 being the actual minimum version of Node.js 8 LTS in practice.
  • Node.js itself is now a dependency. This magic essentially means Churros is batteries included as far as Node.js and NPM is concerned. Users may have an greater version of Node.js installed locally and Churros will downgrade and work just fine. It also removes the need to use nvm and other node version manager where the user has a greater default version of Node.js and NPM installed. This change also brings more consistent behavior to Churros on desperate machines because all users are now known to use Node.js 8. Lastly, this mitigates against issues with Churros and recent versions of Node.js. For example, Node.js ^11.0.0 currently fails to npm install as is.
