The next beta release of Node-RED 2.0.0 is now available.
This should be the last beta release ahead of the final release later this month.
The Change Log has the full list of changes in this release, but here are the highlights.
Note: if any issues are reported against the beta, we'll update this post to list them here. If you hit a problem, please do check back here before adding a comment.
Please read the first beta release note for major changes. The following items are the new items for this beta release.
Just as a reminder, Node-RED 2.0 does not support anything earlier than Node.js 12.
- HTTP Request support for HTTP Proxies has been fixed
- Debug sidebar supports Map/Set type properties
- File In: Add option for file-in node to include all properties when sending msg per line (default off)
- Exec node: add windowsHide option to hide console window under Windows
- Various fixes for the monaco editor component
A updated version of the Node-RED Debugger has also been published - it requires this beta to run.
- Adds option to pause individual nodes rather than the whole flow
- Handles large message queues more efficiently - this will hopefully resolve the lock-up some users had reported when resuming flows.
See node-red-debugger - npm for more information
The first version of the Node-RED Lint tool has also been published. It is still a work in progress, but this initial version is ready to get more feedback from the community. I'll write a separate post about it later.
See nrlint - npm for more information
If you want to try out the beta, you will need specify node-red@next when you use npm to update. Without the
@next you'll still get 1.x
So on a Pi you'd do:
sudo npm install -g --unsafe-perm node-red@next
If you hit any problems, please report them either as a reply on this topic, or in the #core-dev slack channel. Please do not post new topics to the forum regarding the beta as that could confuse users who are not using the beta.
This is nothing major outstanding at this point, aside from a couple translation updates.
We hope to release Node-RED 2.0 later this month.
