ESLint v8.57.0 released

We just pushed ESLint v8.57.0, which is a minor release upgrade of ESLint. This release adds some new features and fixes several bugs found in the previous release.

Highlights

This release backports from v9.x to v8.x two new features and several bug fixes related to the flat config system to help plugins, integrations and users migrate to flat config ahead of the final v9.0.0 release.

Support for eslint.config.mjs and eslint.config.cjs

This release introduces support for eslint.config.mjs and eslint.config.cjs configuration files to v8.x in addition to eslint.config.js, making it easier to use the module format you’d prefer regardless of the module format of the containing package.

New API loadESLint()

ESLint now exports a new function loadESLint() from its main entry point. Integrations can use this function to get either the FlatESLint class (ESLint class in v9.x) or the ESLint class (LegacyESLint class in v9.x) and thus easily swap between flat config and eslintrc APIs.
