🎉 Node-RED 1.2.5 released

Node-RED 1.2.5 is now available.

A fix in 1.2.4 failed to handle an edge case that wasn't spotted in testing. Thankfully it was spotted very quickly and we've published the fix.

Node-RED 1.2.4 is now available.

Notable fixes include:

  • New Russian locale support
  • Fixes an issue where custom keyboard shortcuts were being overridden unexpectedly
  • Support for displaying bigint types in the Debug sidebar
  • Fixes a memory leak handling node status messages with subflows
  • Large flows should load quicker in the editor due to other performance improvements around status handling.

Ah - very nice.

I see in the code you do toString() on the bigint.
I am curious to know your thoughts on whether the string representation (in the debug output) should include an n (e.g. 123456789n) to signify it was a bigint?

I decided to go with the pragmatic solution to get something working. Given the lack of support for BigInt in JSON, I decided to go with String to preserve the value if the user copy/pastes it.

I'm getting an error after updating;


I'm not seeing anything in the node-RED log, or the browser console.

But by starting in safe mode, I've narrowed it down to the rbe node - Just add the rbe node to the editor, deploy, and refresh F5.

Node-RED version: v1.2.4
Node.js version: v12.19.1
Linux 4.14

Odd - can't reproduce that here. Can you send me you flows file directly?

It's not a flow, it seems to be just adding the rbe node to the workspace.
Here, I add the rbe node, deploy, and then F5 refresh.

Right - but I can't reproduce that. If you sent me your flows file I'd be able to see what is going on when is being loaded.

OK, just PM'd it.

Node-RED 1.2.5 published with the fix. Sorry for that.

All good now :+1:
Thanks for the quick fix.


I see the Github link still points to 1.2.4

Probably because v1.2.4 is the actual update, and the link shows users what changes have been made by that update.
(Whilst v1.2.5 just fixes an edge case in v1.2.4)
