Node.js 12.5 is there, enabling the V8 snapshots by default. This should shorten the start time of Node applications. In addition, the update for the latest current release branch has a few new features in its luggage.
Node.js 12.5 released
Also new in Node Update is that napi_define_* accessors are now ECMAScript compliant. The reporting was also working. While the CPU utilization reports used to be percentage-based, it did not take into account the number of CPU cores, so the actual CPU usage was only noticeable on a single core. This has now been changed. The corresponding information can be found in the report as of node 12.5. Another new release in the release concerns worker.terminate() , which is now returning a promise. The use of callbacks at this point has been marked as deprecated.
For more information about Node 12.5, see the release notes in the Node Blog.
