Create an express application:
$ npm install -g express
$ express /tmp/foo && cd /tmp/foo
Edit package.json to reference "now": "0.8.0".
$ npm install -d
Append this to app.js:
var everyone = require('now').initialize(app);
Run the application:
Browse to a URL such as http://localhost:3000/should-get-404
Instead of getting back the expected 404, the request will hang. If you remove the line from step 4 or use nowjs 0.7.6, the issue will disappear.
Interesting... looking into it.
This was a very critical bug. Fixed in 3691280 and version bumped to v0.8.1. npm update now to obtain working new version.
