What’s new in Node.js core?

Simon Plenderleith gives a roundup of the new stuff that landed in Node since September 2021.

  • Auto cancel async operations
  • Fetch API
  • Import JSON modules
  • Abort API additions
  • readline/promises API
  • Corepack

I’m especially excited about native fetch() support making it into Node 17. Note that you must enabled it using the --experimental-fetch flag, though.

Web Streams support — available with experimental support in 17.8 — also looks pretty sweet.
