ESLint v4.12.0 released

by Kevin Partington - 25 November 2017

New Rules

We've added 1 new rule with this release:

We've added autofix capabilities to one rule: sort-vars. At present, it will only sort variables with no initial value or a literal initial value, in order to avoid potentially changing the order of function calls.

New Node.js APIs

This API is useful when you are working with an instance of Linter and need to define a custom parser at runtime.
