Node.js
My colleague Paolo Insogna had added to Node.js core the capability to close all idle connections (i.e. KeepAlive). This will enable to improve the “graceful shutdown” scenario significantly and it’s coming to you on Node.js v18! Check it out:
We made fetch happen in Node.js 18 and folks are opening up a huge amount of issues about it. We are slowing crunching them so to ensure that everything works for the ecosystem. As an example, we are making the global Undici Dispatcher truly global, so it’s shared between Node.js own fetch implementation and the undici module.
OpenSSL vulnerabilities disclosed on May 3rd are only marginally affecting Node.js, so we will release them as part of the normal release cadence. Read the full announcement.
