Hi from JSConf US in sunny San Diego, Calif., where a representative group of Johnny-Five contributors met and planned what's next for Johnny-Five. And—ta-da!—we are thrilled to announce the release of Johnny-Five v1.0.0!
We're committing to the support of both LTS (Long-Term Support) branches of Node.js, which, at time of versioning are: 8.x (active LTS) and 6.x (maintenance LTS). Already succesfully running J5 on an older version of Node.js? That's OK; it's not going to stop working overnight. We are, however, marching boldly forward: be forewarned that future releases may break on unsupported versions of Node.js.
Now we've got our semver wheels in motion. We're in a good position to start kicking out some of the features we've been excited about (but have been scared to ship because some are breaking). Stay tuned!
