4.0.0 (2021-02-10)

Notable Changes

  • Node v6.x & v8.x are no longer supported. The minimum supported version is now v10.18.0 (LTS Dubnium).
  • Dependencies updated across the board, should no longer trigger audit warnings.
  • Lots of JSDoc type annotations were added. Maybe they're helpful?

Nothing was newly deprecated, nothing previously deprecated was removed. Migrating to v4 should be straightforward.
