try the code below

var parser = require('feedparser');
var url = 'http://com-stol.ru/?feed=rss2';
{ addmeta: false, feedurl: true },
function(e, meta, articles){
console.log('got % articles from %s feed',articles.length, url);


throw new TypeError("Parameter 'url' must be a string, not " + typeof url)

I assume that there is something with URL API changes in node v0.10.0

Two things:

  1. You're right that node v0.10.x is acting differently, but
  2. You're passing an invalid value as the feedurl option. That must be a String, not a Boolean, and that's what's actually causing the error.

If you need to supply the feedurl (which you shouldn't when you're using parseUrl), then make sure to use the actual feed, not true.
