We just pushed ESLint v7.20.0, which is a minor release upgrade of ESLint. This release adds some new features and fixes several bugs found in the previous release.


  • The no-unused-expressions rule has a new option enforceForJSX to flag unused JSX elements.
  • The following selectors have been updated to support JSX and custom parsers: :first-child, :last-child, :nth-child(n), :nth-last-child(n), sibling ~, and adjacent sibling +. All selectors now support JSX and custom parsers.
