What is the difference between Node "core" and "userland" modules

What is the versioning scheme?

Odd versions are unstable, even versions are stable. v0.2 and v0.4 are even/stable. v0.3 is odd/unstable. The next unstable release will be v0.5. The stable branch takes bug fixes only - it does not change the JavaScript API, addon API, nor ABI (you don't have to rebuild modules after upgrading node with-in a stable branch).

What is the correct capitalization of Node.js?

The official name of Node is "Node". The unofficial name is "Node.js" to disambiguate it from other nodes.

What is an easy way to manage Node.js versions / installations?
