Node 10 Upgrade Notice
Azure DevOps is currently working to establish Node 10 as the new preferred runtime for tasks, upgrading from Node 6.
Relevant work is happening in the
master`` branch and the major version should be used with Node 10 is 3. Previous major version is stored in the releases/2.x`
Upgrading to Node 10
Upgrading your tasks from Node 6 should be relatively painless, however there are some things to note:
- Typescript has been upgraded to TS 4. Older versions of TS may or may not work with Node 14 or the 3.x branch. We recommend upgrading to TS 4 when upgrading to task-lib 3.x.
- Node has made some changes to
fsbetween Node 6 and Node 10. It is worth reviewing and testing your tasks thoroughly before publishing updates to Node 10.
We are accepting contributions and we try to stay on top of issues.
