Is the public NPM JavaScript package registry going away? , insists it will remain, despite a recent rumor to the contrary.

The company wants to dispel any notion that the public registry will be eliminated or that its elimination was ever under consideration. NPM is, in fact, continuing the public registry while also making recent improvements to its behind-the-firewall, commercially licensed, private registry for enterprises.

Another improvement is SAML support for single sign-on in addition to OpenID Connect, for authenticating users with user management infrastructure rather than maintaining a separate set of user accounts. moved to a production-level status in February.
