ESLint v5.16.0 released

by Kevin Partington - 29 March 2019

We just pushed ESLint v5.16.0, which is a minor release upgrade of ESLint. This release adds some new features and fixes several bugs found in the previous release.


Formatters can now use rule metadata in their output! This enhancement was originally described and designed using our RFC process. More information can be found here.

A new built-in formatter, json-with-metadata, was created using this new feature. The json-with-metadata formatter is very similar to the json formatter, except that it also includes the rule metadata.
