Node.js 14.x by Default

Fedora 33 will carry the latest LTS version 14.x as the default Node.js interpreter for the system.

Benefit to Fedora

As Node.js is a popular JavaScript server-side engine, keeping Fedora updated with the latest Node.js releases will allow it to track the state-of-the-art in that space.

Fedora 33 will also have the 12.x release available as a selectable module stream for users who are running software that does not support 14.x.

User Experience

Users will have the 14.x release of Node.js by default available in Fedora 33. However, if your applications are not compatible with the newer version, you can revert to the 12.x. release by running the following commands:

dnf remove node.js
dnf module reset nodejs
dnf module install nodejs:12
