ESLint v8.7.0 released

by Brandon Mills - 15 January 2022

We just pushed ESLint v8.7.0, which is a minor release upgrade of ESLint. This release adds some new features and fixes several bugs found in the previous release.


  • The functionality behind eslint --init has been pulled into a standalone @eslint/create-config package. Now, you can initialize ESLint in a new project with npm init @eslint/config, npx @eslint/create-config, or yarn create @eslint/config.
  • Several rules gained support for arbitrary module namespace names.
