This is a relatively quiet release, bringing a few bug fixes and some module updates, plus via the 2.14.5 release some forward compatibility fixes with versions of Node that aren't yet released.
NO BETA NOTICE THIS TIME!!
But, EXCITING NEWS FRIENDS, this week marks the exit of npm@3 from beta. This means that the week of this release, v3.3.3 will become
latest and this version (v3.3.4) will become
CRUFT FOR THE CRUFT GODS
What I call "cruft", by which I mean, files sitting around in your
node_modules folder, will no longer produce warnings in
npm ls nor during
npm install. This brings npm@3's behavior in line with npm@2.
