    I noticed that the Node.js version bundled with Max is 16.6.0 Node.js 16.x is scheduled for end of life on 2023-09-11 https://github.com/nodejs/release#release-schedule https://nodejs.org/en/blog/announcements/nodejs16-eol Node.js 18.x is the current Long Term Support version but goes into maintenance on 2023-10-18 Node.js 20.x is the current version and will become the new Long Term Support version on 2023-10-24 I realize that the node.script object has node_bin_path and npm_bin_path attributes I could use to update my version but I think it would make sense to update the version of node bundled with Max to 20.x

      Hi Jarret,
      this is correct, I don’t have an ETA or too much detail right now but we’ll be looking into this for a future update alongside supporting modern module loading that is required by some npm packages. In the meantime we recommend using node_bin_path and npm_bin_path as suggested to change the version of node if required. Thank you
