ESLint v8.26.0 released

We just pushed ESLint v8.26.0, which is a minor release upgrade of ESLint. This release adds some new features and fixes several bugs found in the previous release.

Highlights

  • The no-implicit-globals rule now supports /* exported */ directive comments.

  • ESLINT_USE_FLAT_CONFIG environment variable can now be used for more control over switching between the current and the new config system.

  • The @eslint/create-config utility to create ESLint config files has a new option --config:

    # npm 6.x
    npm init @eslint/config --config semistandard

    # npm 7+
    npm init @eslint/config -- --config semistandard
