Performance Improvements

  • cli: load only sub-system modules and inline require ipfs (3820be0)


  1. Argument order for pubsub.subscribe has changed:
    • Old: pubsub.subscribe(topic, [options], handler, [callback]): Promise
    • New: pubsub.subscribe(topic, handler, [options], [callback]): Promise
  2. The pubsub.unsubscribe method has become async meaning that it now takes a callback or returns a promise:
    • Old: pubsub.unsubscribe(topic, handler): undefined
    • New: pubsub.unsubscribe(topic, handler, [callback]): Promise
  3. Property names on response objects for ping are now lowered:
    • Old: { Success, Time, Text }
    • New: { success, time, text }
  4. In the CLI, jsipfs object data no longer returns a newline after the end of the returned data
