npm@2.0.0 released – The npm Blog

npm 2.0.0 is a major version change but don’t be afraid, your code probably won’t break


npm maintainer Forrest Norvell (@othiym23) introduces npm 2.0.0:

“Last week, I released npm@2.0.0. If you’ve been using npm@1.4, it’s a substantial update, but that’s not why it’s 2.0.0. npm@1.0.1 was released on April 30th, 2011 – three and a half years ago.”

Notable changes include:

– Ability to pass arguments into scripts

– Scoped packages

– Bearer token auth
