ESLint v5.13.0 released

We just pushed ESLint v5.13.0, which is a minor release upgrade of ESLint. This release adds some new features and fixes several bugs found in the previous release.

Highlights

Configuration of globals has been improved with three new options: "off", "readable", and "writeable".

  • "off": Completely disables a global variable that was previously defined.
  • "readable": Equivalent to the old false value, "readable" global variables are in scope but cannot be written to.
  • "writeable": Equivalent to the old true value, "writeable" global variables can be read from and written to.

Configurations using the old true/false values will continue to work, but we encourage you to use the newer, more explicit options.

Check out the documentation on specifying globals for more details!
