Deno 1.28 Released (Now with 1.3 Million New Modules..?) — Yes, we know Deno isn’t Node (it is an anagram of it, though 😏) but given its shared provenance and now that Deno now officially supports using npm modules in a ‘stable’ way, this is newsworthy. If you are heavily attached to the npm ecosystem, experimenting with Deno is easier than ever (plus there’s no node_modules, package.json or npm install involved either..)
