The Node.js project has recently released its latest version Node.js 10.0.0 on 24th April. It is the seventh major Node.js release since the launch of the Node.js Foundation. It is going to be the next Active Long Term Support(LTS) branch in October of 2018. So, it will be supported for next three years. Some of its key improvements include adding support for the OpenSSL 1.1.0 security toolkit. However, it focuses mainly on incremental improvements.
Being a point update, this version arrives with full support for N-API, LTS status to come, and more unique features.
