Hi Everyone, this edition covers a couple of personal milestones for me: being cited by HorseJS and opening up my GitHub sponsor account. We also include several releases ranging from Mercurius Cache to Pino.
I decided to open up GitHub Sponsors because while a lot of my OSS is funded by @NearForm, I very often receive requests for bug fixes etc from people/companies that for different reasons cannot hire NearForm and yet they cannot fix bugs themselves.
Do you remember this hall? This was part of a famous film! I took this picture myself!
This week marks a massive milestone for Mercurius. The cache plugin now support invalidations both for local memory and Redis. This feature has been result of the collaboration between Simone Sanfratello and myself
You can read more about it in the long PR that implemented it for the mercurius-cache module.
How does the cache works? The “magic” is all encapsulated in the async-cache-dedupe module. You can use it standalone and add it to your REST APIs too. Check out the PR that implemented invalidations to learn more of our tradeoffs.
On January 10th there has been a new release of Node.js core. This release include a few critical fixes to how we validate X509 certificates (TLS). It’s really import that you upgrade your Node.js version.

This is very much work in progress when meeting @ronag at NodeTLV.
This is based on the ongoing standards work in https://github.com/tc39/proposal-iterator-helpers in order to make Node.js more compatible with the language in the future.
In addition, people often really just want to map a stream and this provides a simpler API than compose or pipeline for simple cases.
This is still missing docs, I want to bikeshed the API and see we have consensus first.
This continues the work in #40815 to make streams compatible with upcoming ECMAScript language features. It adds an experimental filter api to streams and tests/docs for it. See https://github.com/tc39/proposal-iterator-helpers/
I write about my journey as a core contributor of Node.js, as an author and a maintainer of many modules - including Fastify and Pino. In addition, I speak at conferences, and I will add links to all my talks in case you missed one.
