ESLint v4.16.0 released

by Teddy Katz - 19 January 2018

We just pushed ESLint v4.16.0, which is a minor release upgrade of ESLint. This release adds some new features and fixes several bugs found in the previous release.


  • The comma-style rule now supports a NewExpression option.
  • The valid-jsdoc rule can now be autofixed in some cases, and its error locations are more precise.
  • The allowMultiplePropertiesPerLine option in the object-property-newline rule has been renamed to allowAllPropertiesOnSameLine to more clearly convey what the option does. allowMultiplePropertiesPerLine still works, but has been deprecated.
