ESLint v8.0.0-beta.1 released27 August 2021
We just pushed ESLint v8.0.0-beta.1, which is a major release upgrade of ESLint. This release adds some new features and fixes several bugs found in the previous release. This release also has some breaking changes, so please read the following closely.
- Beta testing revealed that the impact of the breaking change to allow line comment directives for all directives that previously required block comments outweighs the benefits of this feature due to a high number of accidental directives, so we decided to revert this change and exclude this feature from v8.0.0.
- Code Path Analysis now supports ES2022 class fields. In particular, each class field initializer now starts a separate code path. A new
originproperty has been added to CodePath objects.
meta.docs.categoryproperty has been removed from all core rules.
Since this is a beta release, it is not expected to be ready for production, but please try it and report any unexpected issues.
Since this is a pre-release version, you will not automatically be upgraded by npm. You must specify the
next tag when installing:
npm i eslint@next --save-dev
You can also specify the version directly:
npm i firstname.lastname@example.org --save-dev
As there are a lot of changes, we've created a migration guide describing the changes in great detail along with the steps you should take to address them. We expect that most users should be able to upgrade without any build changes, but the migration guide should be a useful resource if you encounter problems.
