Deno 1.13 Released — This is truly a release of many small enhancements - enough so that we’re going to need some bulletpoints:

  • V8 9.3 – more on that below.
  • The native HTTP server API in now stable.
  • Support for self.structuredClone()
  • The system certificate support can now be used for TLS.
  • TLS verification can be disabled if you need to.
  • Improvements to the Deno language server and the VS Code extension.
  • And, of course, much more.

The Deno Team

V8 Release v9.3 — Recent V8 releases have been reasonably lean on new features, and so it goes with 9.3 which mostly gets faster compilation, Object.hasOwn (an alias for Object.prototype.​hasOwnProperty.​call), and the ability to attach error ‘causes’ to Error instances. It’s in beta until Chrome 93 (due in the coming weeks) and while Node.js users have to wait a week or two, it's in Deno 1.13 right now!

Pagic: A Static Site Generator Powered by Deno and React — Aims to be simple to get up and running with a convention over configuration approach. Links to demos.


gql: Universal GraphQL HTTP Middleware for Deno — Well-tested, has examples and autogenerated docs. Unlike other sub middleware, this isn’t framework specific (it works with std/http, tinyhttp and Opine out of the box).

Deno Libraries
