Node.js 18 has been released with improvements including the enabling by default of global fetch, and a core test runner module.
This release has an experimental global fetch API that is available by default. The addition gives Node.js a standardized interface for fetching resources over HTTP. The promise-based client can be used to send simplified HTTP requests, and was inspired by node-fetch.
Node.js now exposes the experimental implementation of the Web Streams API on the global scope
Node.js 18 is downloadable now.
