How to see package history?

Problem

How can I see the history of a package in the Npm registry?

In particular, I want to know when https://npmjs.org/package/npm version 1.1.2 was released.

Solution

You could do npm view npm there are some options you can find at https://docs.npmjs.com/cli/view

e.g. npm view npm@1.1.2 time

For some specific versions I have found that time is not present and therefore the package is not listed when running that command. To see a list of all available times for a package run this command: npm view <package> time. To see all versions and history run npm view <package> versions.
