Is there a way to list all available node.js versions?

After updating the local cache of available node versions with nvm sync you can list all available versions with nvm ls

nvm sync was removed unfortunately.

Sorry - I hadn't pulled in a while and didn't realize that :-/

What happens with just nvm ls then? After updating, my system still lists all versions with those installed in blue.


Ok, I'm just seeing the remnants left by the older version of nvm because once I uninstalled an older version of node it disappeared from the list.

Kinda strange to see this functionality removed...

@s0nspark Yeah I don't like that it was removed. I've been considering forking nvm lately, which @creationix encourages.
