  1. blog: remove dangling symlink

    Fixes #4716.

  2. zlib: pass object size hint to V8

    Inform V8 that the zlib context object is tied to a large off-heap buffer.
    
    This makes the GC run more often (in theory) and improves the accuracy of
    --trace_external_memory.

  3. zlib: reduce memory consumption, release early

    In zlibBuffer(), don't wait for the garbage collector to reclaim the zlib memory
    but release it manually. Reduces memory consumption by a factor of 10 or more
    with some workloads.
    
    Test case:
    
      function f() {
        require('zlib').deflate('xxx', g);
      }
      function g() {
        setTimeout(f, 5);
      }
      f();
    
    Observe RSS memory usage with and without this commit. After 10,000 iterations,
    RSS stabilizes at ~35 MB with this commit. Without, RSS is over 300 MB and keeps
    growing.
    
    Cause: whenever the JS object heap hits the high-water mark, the V8 GC sweeps
    it clean, then tries to grow it in order to avoid more sweeps in the near
    future. Rule of thumb: the bigger the JS heap, the lazier the GC can be.
    
    A side effect of a bigger heap is that objects now live longer. This is harmless
    in general but it affects zlib context objects because those are tied to large
    buffers that live outside the JS heap, on the order of 16K per context object.
    
    Ergo, don't wait for the GC to reclaim the memory - it may take a long time.
    
    Fixes #4172.

  4. doc: don't suggest to reuse net.Socket objects

    Using Socket.prototype.connect() to reconnect an existing Socket object
    is not reliable. Users should just create a new Socket object.
    
    See #4698.

  1. buffer: slow buffer copy compatibility fix

    Fix issue where SlowBuffers couldn't be passed as target to Buffer
    copy().
    
    Also included checks to see if Argument parameters are defined before
    assigning their values. This offered ~3x's performance gain.
    
    Backport of 16bbecc from master branch. Closes #4633.

  1. zlib: don't assert on malformed dictionary

    Handle Z_DATA_ERROR errors from inflateSetDictionary() gracefully.
    Fixes the following assertion:
    
      node: ../src/node_zlib.cc:167: static void node::ZCtx::Process
      (uv_work_t*): Assertion `ctx->err_ == 0 && "Failed to set
      dictionary"' failed.
      Aborted (core dumped)
    
    Fixes #4632.

  2. zlib: don't assert on missing dictionary

    Handle Z_NEED_DICT errors graciously. Fixes the following assertion:
    
      node: ../src/node_zlib.cc:161: static void node::ZCtx::Process
      (uv_work_t*): Assertion`ctx->dictionary_ != __null && "Stream
      has no dictionary"' failed.
      Aborted (core dumped)
    
    Fixes #4632.

  1. tls: follow RFC6125 more stricly

    * Allow wildcards only in left-most part of hostname identifier.
    * Do not match CN if altnames are present
    indutny committed Jan 14, 2013
  2. Revert "Revert "tls: allow wildcards in common name""

    This reverts commit 30e2370.
    
    Works properly with b4b750b

  3. Revert "tls: allow wildcards in common name"

    This reverts commit 45024e7.
    
    It's making test/simple/test-tls-check-server-identity.js fail:
    
      AssertionError: Test#4 failed: { host: 'b.a.com',
        cert: { subject: { CN: '*.a.com' } },

  4. test: add cluster 'bind twice' test

    This test starts two clustered HTTP servers on the same port.
    It expects the first cluster to succeed and the second cluster
    to fail with EADDRINUSE.
    
    Reapplies commit cacd3ae, accidentally reverted in a2851b6.

  5. buffer: reject negative SlowBuffer offsets

    Reject negative offsets in SlowBuffer::MakeFastBuffer(), it allows
    the creation of buffers that point to arbitrary addresses.

  1. install: add simplejson fallback

    Make tools/install.py work with python 2.5
    
    2.5 is still fairly widespread and does not include a json lib as
    standard. Most python folk will have simplejson if they are in that
    boat.
    
    In general it seems a bit tricky to solve this perfectly...

  2. make binary: allow custom config flags

    For example, to cross-compile from my OS X laptop for Raspberry Pi, you would
    do something like:
    
      $ make binary BINARYNAME=node-v`python tools/getnodeversion.py`-linux-arm-pi \
          DESTCPU=arm CONFIG_FLAGS="--dest-os=linux"
