Github company that belongs to Microsoft bought NPM (Node Package Manager). the world’s largest software registry for an unspecified amount, so count on its blog.
For the millions of developers who use the public npm registry every day, npm will always be available and always be free. Our focus after the deal closes will be to:
Invest in the registry infrastructure and platform.
Improve the core experience.
We will work to improve the everyday experience of developers and maintainers, and support the great work already started on the npm v7 CLI, which will remain free and open source. Some bigger features that we’re excited about are Workspaces and improvements to the publishing and multi-factor authentication experience.
Engage with the community.
