Meteor 1.9 is out

Great news to start the year: https://github.com/meteor/meteor/releases/tag/release%2FMETEOR%401.9

This comes with Node 12 as the core feature

Cordova 9 is also coming to Meteor (and a lot of package updates):

A good start for year 2020 for Meteor. Thanks to everyone involved with these new versions :partying_face:

Nice, I hope the fibers garbage collection makes a difference. Looking forward to trying it out.

The feature that restarts the application up to two times if it crashes on startup has been removed.

I’m gonna get drunk.

So when will it be out ?
my meteor update still tells me This project is already at Meteor 1.8.3, the latest release.
Also this page still mention the 1.8.2 version as current :slight_smile:

That is because it does not have yet the “recommended” status. Run meteor update --release 1.9 and it should work just fine.

Great work - many thanks to all contributors!
It seemed to work with hiccups for me so I put it out on production yesterday.

If I update to 1.9 but I am running node 8 on my EC2 server do I need to update my node on my EC2 to 12 first??

Yes. The bundle won’t run properly if the the Node version doesn’t mach.

Now i’m on 1.8.1, do you know if update to 1.9 we have to follow all “Migration Steps” ? (to 1.8.2 and 1.8.3 ? 1.9 have nothing to do)

You don’t need to upgrade incrementally, however, make sure you read about major changes / breaking changes between versions.

IIRC node 12 is 64-bit only so 64-bit hardware is now required. Otherwise, because of Meteor’s emphasis on backward compatibility, there are usually no breaking changes.

Bcrypt doesn’t build with 1.9 :frowning: I had to revert back to 1.8.x until I can find a solution.

What is the process that a version goes through to become recommended ?
