ESLint v8.1.0 released

by Milos Djermanovic - 22 October 2021

We just pushed ESLint v8.1.0, which is a minor release upgrade of ESLint. This release adds some new features and fixes several bugs found in the previous release.


  • One new rule has been added: no-unused-private-class-members. This rule reports unused class private fields, methods and accessors.
  • RuleTester now allows name property in test case objects. If you specify name, it will be output instead of the code.
