ESLint v4.0.0-beta.0 released
We just pushed ESLint v4.0.0-beta.0, which is a major release upgrade of ESLint. This release adds some new features and fixes several bugs found in the previous release. This release also has some breaking changes, so please read the following closely.
Note: This version of ESLint is not ready for production use and is provided to gather feedback from the community before releasing the final version. Please let us know if you having any problems or feedback by creating issues on our GitHub repo or joining our Gitter channel.
  • If you’re upgrading from 3.x, see the migration guide.
  • Four new rules have been added in this release:
    • semi-style
    • padding-line-between-statements
    • for-direction
    • switch-colon-spacing
  • Previously, ESLint’s Node.js API exposed a mutable eslint.linter object which could be used to lint text. This could cause problems if two unrelated modules were using eslint.linter at the same time, because they might both mutate it and interfere with each other. To resolve this, ESLint now exposes an eslint.Linter constructor, which can be used to create mutable linter instances. We recommend that integrations switch to using eslint.Linter rather than eslint.linter.
  • Three rules have been deprecated in favor of the new padding-line-between-statements rule:
    • lines-around-directive
    • newline-after-var
    • newline-before-return
