Found hard to understand against which version of node and npm, is linked. Maybe a page listing latest version of and against whoch one they work would be a great idea. doesn't seems to work, whereas it was working yesterday, between i just reinstalled node and npm with the current stable version, I'm sure its a noobish error, but hard to say where I'm wrong :/

The latest version of works with all stable versions since 0.4.0. Anything unstable (>= 0.7.0) is unsupported.
