Following the official Node.js release dates, we’re ending support for Node.js version 16 on Atlas, effective May 6th, 2024. This decision allows us to focus our resources on supporting newer versions of Node.js, which include critical security updates and performance improvements.
What This Means for You
If your applications or projects currently use Node.js version 16, they will continue to function without interruption. However, beginning on May 6th, any new builds of your Atlas applications set to utilize Node.js version 16 will not succeed. To avoid this issue, you'll need to upgrade your site to Node.js version 18 or newer.
Recommended Actions
We strongly encourage you to upgrade to one of the newer versions of Node.js supported on Atlas as soon as possible. This will ensure your applications can be updated seamlessly.
  1. Review your applications: Check your applications for any dependencies that might be affected by this change and plan your upgrade path accordingly.
  2. Test your applications: After upgrading, thoroughly test your applications to ensure they operate as expected without any issues.
