Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform JavaScript run-time environment built on Chrome’s V8 JavaScript engine that executes JavaScript code outside of a browser.

Major Node.js versions enter Current release status for six months, which gives library authors time to add support for them. After six months, odd-numbered releases (9, 11, etc.) become unsupported, and even-numbered releases (10, 12, etc.) move to Active LTS status and are ready for general use. LTS release status is “long-term support”, which typically guarantees that critical bugs will be fixed for a total of 30 months. Production applications should only use Active LTS or Maintenance LTS releases.

If a even-numbered release above is not marked as LTS, then it has not entered “Active LTS” and is not recommended for Production use.

The End-of-Life date for Node.js 16 was moved forward by seven months to coincide with the end of support of OpenSSL 1.1.1 on September 11th, 2023.

More information is available on the Node.js website.

You should be running one of the supported release numbers listed above in the rightmost column.

You can check the version that you are currently using by running:
node --version
