ESLint v7.6.0 released

by Kai Cataldo - 31 July 2020

We just pushed ESLint v7.6.0, which is a minor release upgrade of ESLint. This release adds some new features and fixes several bugs found in the previous release.


RuleTester requires meta.fixable for fixable rules

Fixable rules are required to have a meta.fixable property. A bug in the RuleTester class (which is intended to help plugin authors write and test custom rules) was recently surfaced in which fixable rules that do not export metadata (the meta property) are not validated for the existence of a meta.fixable property, while rules that do export meta are.

This has been fixed in this release! Unfortunately, this can lead to new errors being reported by the RuleTester for rules that apply fixes and are missing a meta property. Please feel free to stop by our help channel if you need assistance resolving this issue.
