Does the recommendation to use npm version 4.6.1 matter if using Yarn?

#1

I get the following after updating to the newest version of node.js + npm.

Warning
Warning: You are using npm version 5.4.2. There may be bugs in this version, use it at your own risk. We recommend version 4.6.1.

Does this matter when using Yarn for package management?

I get the warning sometimes too, I just ignore it since I don’t run into any issues.

Doesn’t matter if you use yarn.

Thanks @jimmylee.

In case anyone doesn’t want the ugly orange warning in XDE the command for downgrading to npm 4.6.1 is
npm install -g npm@4
