November](https://dl.dropbox.com/u/3685/presentations/streams2/streams2-ko.pdf)
about this subject. A lot of node module authors have been involved
with the development of streams2 (and of course the node core team),
and at this point, I'm confident that it's an improvement over what
we've got.

+## streams2
The feature is described pretty thoroughly in the documentation, so
I'm including it below. Please read it, especially the section on
"compatibility".

+As of this writing, there are some known performance regressions,
+especially in the http module. We are fanatical about maintaining
+performance in Node.js, so of course this will have to be fixed before
+the v0.10 stable release. (Watch for a future blog post on the tools
+and techniques that have been useful in tracking down these issues.)
+
+There may be minor changes as necessary to fix bugs and improve
+performance, but the API at this point should be considered feature
+complete. It correctly does all the things we need it to do, it just
+doesn't do them quite well enough yet. As always, be wary of running
+unstable releases in production, of course, but I would like to
+encourage you to try it out and see what you think. Especially, if
+you have tests that you can run on your modules and libraries, that
+would be extremely useful feedback.
