Get email notifications when new version of a package published

Issue

There used to be some projects available for this rather convenient purpose (one, two), but they seem to be shut down.

I came across the NPM hooks, but it doesn’t give an out-of-the-box way to have human readable notifications (emails or something along those lines).

Since an average NodeJS app depends on a number of 3rd party packages and new versions of those are published with a striking pace, I’m a little bit surprised that this feature isn’t built in NPM website in the first place.

I don’t find doing npm outdated and so on terribly handy on a regular basis. Nobody wants routinely check for updates in case he just might get a notification when it happens.

So, how can we get email notifications when new version of a package published to NPM?
