This is a maintenance release. An increasing amount of dependencies required a node version higher than the Node 10 version supported by
semantic-release@17. We decided to go straight to a recent Node LTS version because the release build is usually independent of others, requiring a higher node version is less disruptive to users, but helps us reduce the maintenance overhead.
If you use GitHub Actions and need to bump the node version set up by
actions/node-setup, you can use
node-version: the minimum required version of node is now v14.17
