With the adoption of promises, D3 now uses the modern [Fetch API](https://fetch.spec.whatwg.org/) instead of [XMLHttpRequest](https://developer.mozilla.org/docs/Web/API/XMLHttpRequest): the [d3-request](https://github.com/d3/d3-request) module has been deprecated add replaced by [d3-fetch](https://github.com/d3/d3-fetch). Fetch supports many powerful new features, such as [streaming responses](https://beta.observablehq.com/@mbostock/streaming-shapefiles). D3 5.0 also deprecates and removes the [d3-queue](https://github.com/d3/d3-queue) module. You can use [Promise.all](https://developer.mozilla.org/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/Promise/all) to run a batch of asynchronous tasks in parallel, or a helper library such as [p-queue](https://github.com/sindresorhus/p-queue) to control concurrency. See this [interactive introduction to p-queue](https://beta.observablehq.com/@mbostock/hello-p-queue).

D3 no longer provides the d3.schemeCategory20* categorical color schemes. These twenty-color schemes were flawed because their grouped design could falsely imply relationships in the data: a shared hue can imply that the encoded data are part of a group (a super-category), while relative lightness can imply order. In their stead, D3 now includes [d3-scale-chromatic](https://github.com/d3/d3-scale-chromatic), which implements excellent schemes from ColorBrewer, including [categorical](https://github.com/d3/d3-scale-chromatic/blob/master/README.md#categorical), [diverging](https://github.com/d3/d3-scale-chromatic/blob/master/README.md#diverging), [sequential single-hue](https://github.com/d3/d3-scale-chromatic/blob/master/README.md#sequential-single-hue) and [sequential multi-hue](https://github.com/d3/d3-scale-chromatic/blob/master/README.md#sequential-multi-hue) color schemes. These schemes are available in both discrete and continuous variants.

D3 now provides implementations of marching squares and density estimation via [d3-contour](https://github.com/d3/d3-contour). There are two new [d3-selection](https://github.com/d3/d3-selection) methods: [*selection*.clone](https://github.com/d3/d3-selection/blob/master/README.md#selection_clone) for inserting clones of the selected nodes, and [d3.create](https://github.com/d3/d3-selection/blob/master/README.md#create) for creating detached elements. [Geographic projections](https://github.com/d3/d3-geo) now support [*projection*.angle](https://github.com/d3/d3-geo/blob/master/README.md#projection_angle), which has enabled some fantastic new [polyhedral projections](https://github.com/d3/d3-geo-polygon).

Lastly, D3’s [package.json](https://github.com/d3/d3/blob/master/package.json) no longer pins exact version numbers of the dependent D3 modules. This fixes an issue with [duplicate copies](https://github.com/d3/d3/issues/3256) of D3 modules at different versions.
