Node.js 8 Moves into Long-Term Support & Node.js 9 Becomes New Current Release Line by Node.js Foundation

Node.js 8 will be ready for production as it transfers into the de facto Long-Term Support release line opening it up to a larger user base that demands stability and security. Node.js 8 is one of the biggest release lines from the Node.js community to date with features and add-ons like Async / Await and V8 JavaScript Engine 6.1. It is up to 20 percent faster than its predecessor Node.js 6 in typical web applications.

The Node.js Project also released Node.js 9.0.0 for developers who are interested in testing and experimentation. This release focuses on adding and testing new bleeding-edge features and is frequently updated. Therefore it is not recommended for those using Node.js in production.
