Today, the Node.js upstream released 12.0.0, the next in its line of
long-term support releases. I plan to make this the default version of
Node.js in Fedora 31+, but not immediately. I'm currently working on
getting a modular version of 12.x built for F29, F30 and Rawhide. I'll
get that out to updates-testing this week. I'll send out an update
once it's pushed to updates-testing.
Once that's available, I encourage all NPM packagers in Fedora to
start testing their build and runtime with the 12.x module. I will be
filing a Change Proposal and plan to switch the system interpreter for
Rawhide over to 12.x around the end of May or beginning of June.
The exact timing may depend on the current status of the
modules-in-the-non-modular-buildroot work in Fedora. If that's
available by this time, I will retire the non-modular Node.js
interpreter package and make the 12.x module the default stream for
F31+. If it's not available, I'll continue to do what I've been doing
in F29 and F30; building both the modular and non-modular packages.
If you discover that you own NPM packages that are critical and do not
work with Node.js 12.x, please inform me immediately. We'll talk with
upstream and see what we can do about it.
