We are excited to announce that Meteor Software will be providing Extended Support Maintenance (ESM) for Node.js 14.
As you may be aware, the official sunset of Node.js 14 LTS is scheduled for April 2023. To help ease the transition of your applications to Meteor 3.0 and provide additional support, Meteor Software will offer Meteor.js Node.js 14 ESM for 12 months beyond the official end-of-life date.
Our Extended Support Maintenance will focus on the following:
Security updates: We will actively monitor and backport security fixes from newer versions of Node.js (such as Node.js 16 and 18) to ensure the ongoing safety and stability of your Meteor.js applications running on Node.js 14.
Critical bug fixes: We will address any critical issues that might arise, prioritizing stability and compatibility for your projects.
Please note that this Extended Support Maintenance is specific to Node.js 14 within the Meteor.js framework and is separate from the official Node.js LTS releases.
Meteor 2.12 beta is already using the Node.js 14 ESM version, a forked repository from the official Node.js 14. If you want to check how it works and compile to use it, you can check the commands we are using in the README.md of our repository.
I don’t think you would be able to use NVM, but you could download it from our CDN, check how the URL is formed here. There are a few strategies that our dev bundle generator can use.
Exactly, you can make your own compilation like this one in our README, or use our already generated one that is hosted on the CDN in the links that @fredmaiaarantes indicated, in these files and only the node compiled from our repository and you can use it in your customized scripts and in your pipeline flows with CI/CD.
Hey all, we have some news about Docker images compatible with Meteor new ESM Support Version of Node.js 14.
Quave implemented a few images that we will keep releasing versions for every new Meteor version (we have also published for 2.6.1, 2.7.3, 2.8.2. 2.9.1, 2.10.0 e 2.11.0. We can also release for previous version upon request).
Here are the 3 images that we are going to support:
This example is running on zCloud as well (we are not promoting it yet as we are finishing up the UI, it will be available soon for the public but we already have some clients running on it for a few months).
Hey @mattphet, Meteor 3.0 release will run on Node.js 18. To stay up-to-date with the latest developments on that, you can follow our public board and also this forum topic. Doing so gives you access to all the updates as they’re released.
We are very close to releasing an alpha version of Meteor 3.0.
