listing of changes documented on the wiki for [5.x and 6.x Note that
this release includes API updates that may require dependency updates.
Upstream maintains an exhaustive list of interesting changes here.
These are just some of the changes you can find in this release of
v5.x, and it's thanks to the hard work of the community and the
members of team curating Node.js.

maintained actively through April 2018 (after the expected release of
Fedora 27) and for security issues for another year after that.
