Deno 1.4 Released: It's a Big One — Deno releases have been coming out frequently since the big 1.0, but this is the first one to get a blog post on the official site, which is nice. 1.4 adds support for the WebSocket API (which you can use from Deno just like you would in a browser), automatic restarts on file changes, integrated test coverage support, CSS styling in console.log, and more. There are examples of these features and others besides all covered in the post.
