Yadda's BDD implementation is like Cucumber's in that it maps the ordinary language steps to code. Not only are the steps less likely to go stale, but they also provide a valuable abstraction layer and encourage re-use. You could of course just use CucumberJS, but we find Yadda less invasive and prefer it's flexible syntax to Gherkin's. Yadda's conflict resolution is smarter too.
The current version of Yadda is 0.17.0.
Breaking changes were introduced in versions 0.15.0 and 0.13.0.
