    v0.1.30

    2010.02.22, Version 0.1.30
      * Major API Changes
    
        - Promises removed. See
          http://groups.google.com/group/nodejs/msg/426f3071f3eec16b
          http://groups.google.com/group/nodejs/msg/df199d233ff17efa
          The API for fs was
    
             fs.readdir("/usr").addCallback(function (files) {
               puts("/usr files: " + files);
             });
    
          It is now
    
             fs.readdir("/usr", function (err, files) {
               if (err) throw err;
               puts("/usr files: " + files);
             });
    
        - Synchronous fs operations exposed, use with care.
    
        - tcp.Connection.prototype.readPause() and readResume()
          renamed to pause() and resume()
    
        - http.ServerResponse.prototype.sendHeader() renamed to
          writeHeader(). Now accepts reasonPhrase.

    v0.1.25

    2010.01.09, Version 0.1.25
      * sys.inspect() improvements (Tim Caswell)
    
      * path module improvements (isaacs, Benjamin Thomas)
    
      * API: request.uri -> request.url
        It is no longer an object, but a string. The 'url' module
        was addded to parse that string. That is, node no longer
        parses the request URL automatically.
    
           require('url').parse(request.url)
    
        is roughly equivlent to the old request.uri object.
