Ad­min­is­tra­tors loathe Node. js for the of­ten fran­tic pace of de­vel­op­ment — hardly a month goes by without a new ver­sion of Node. A two-tier re­lease sched­ule mit­i­gates the prob­lem: from time to time, a cur­rent ver­sion re­ceives the LTS des­ig­na­tion. From that mo­ment on­ward, no new fea­tures will be added dur­ing an 18-month time frame. Main­te­nance, in­stead, lim­its it­self to per­form­ing non-break­ing changes. Dur­ing the ini­tial an­nounce­ment of Node.js LTS re­leases, only

“bug fixes for sta­bil­ity, se­cu­rity up­dates, pos­si­ble npm up­dates, doc­u­men­ta­tion up­dates and cer­tain per­for­mance im­prove­ments that can be demon­strated to not break ex­ist­ing ap­pli­ca­tions” were per­mit­ted — so far, that rule has stood the test of time.
