I just ran npm outdated on my project and it shows

Package       Current       Wanted         Latest
web3    1.0.0-beta.29  1.0.0-beta2  1.0.0-beta.29

However web3 has a rather dreadful history with respect to version naming and so forth.

Running npm view web3 versions gives a long list ending in

'1.0.0-beta2' ]

But if I go to the 1.0 branch in Github, package.json shows the version as 1.0.0-beta.29

Is 1.0.0-beta2 truly more recent than 1.0.0-beta.29?

1 Answer 1


The 1.0.0-beta2 name has been an issue for a while now. As late as mid-December.


beta.29 is the latest version.
