  1. net: Don't go through Stream API when ondata is used

    This speeds up http_simple by around 6%.

  2. http: Replace "in" usage with "=== undefined"

    Speeds up http benchmarks.

  4. domain: use camelCase instead of snake_case

    While it's true that error objects have a history of getting snake_case
    properties attached by the host system, it's a point of confusion to
    Node users that comes up a lot.  It's still 'experimental', so best to
    change this sooner rather than later.

  5. domain: Do not use uncaughtException handler

    This adds a process._fatalException method which is called into from
    C++ in order to either emit the 'uncaughtException' method, or emit
    'error' on the active domain.
    
    The 'uncaughtException' event is an implementation detail that it would
    be nice to deprecate one day, so exposing it as part of the domain
    machinery is not ideal.

  1. fs: make 'end' work with ReadStream without 'start'

    Make `fs.createReadStream({ end: 42 })` work.
    
    Before this commit, it worked only when used like this:
    `fs.createReadStream({ start: 0, end: 42 })` - only when `start` was specified
    by the caller.
    
    Fixes #4423.

  2. fs: remove fs.sendfile()

    Said function has been broken (and useless) since v0.6.0. Remove it altogether.
    
    Fixes #3854.

  3. https: optimize https.createConnection()

    Stop using `arguments` for performance and readability.

  4. buffer: speed up base64 encoding by 20%

    Remove a lot of branches from the inner loop. Speeds up buf.toString('base64')
    by about 20%.
    
    Before:
    
      $ time out/Release/node benchmark/buffer-base64-encode.js
      real    0m6.607s
      user    0m5.508s
      sys     0m1.088s
    
    After:
    
      $ time out/Release/node benchmark/buffer-base64-encode.js
      real    0m5.520s
      user    0m4.520s
      sys     0m0.992s

  5. Colorize API stabilitity index headers in docs

    Noted in @shtylman's #3898, API stability notes are easy to overlook
    in the html documentation. This can be especially troublesome if the API
    is deprecated. This commit gives visual feedback by adding in a class
    to the html docs when they're generated. The API headers with
    corresponding colors are also listed in the 'About this Documentation'
    page for easy reference.

  6. net: socket.readyState corrections

    socket.readyState, .readable, and .writable behavior changed as
    a result of the new streaming interfaces. Updated to be backwards
    compatible with current API and adds regression test.
    
    closes #4461

  7. stream: speed up instantiation of readable stream

    - Stream.apply -> Stream.call
    tricknotes committed with isaacs Dec 27, 2012
  8. domain: speed up domain.create

    Use `EventEmitter.call` instead of `EventEmitter.apply` because of performance.

  1. http: remove unused variable

    The module variable `END_OF_FILE` was no longer needed from 1d36931.

  2. build: Add hyphen to custom build tags

    so that ./configure --tag=foo makes a version number like v0.9.5-foo
    instead of v0.9.5foo

  1. http: Handle end only when stream is not dumped

    This fixes regression introduced in some cases by 8bf0c15

  2. repl: remove 'repl' from automatic loading libs

    In repl, calling `repl` twice shows the following message:
    ```
    > repl
    A different "repl" already exists globally
    ```

  3. repl: add 'domain' to automatic loading libs

    `domain` should be a member of automatic loading libs in `repl`.

  4. doc: document the finish event

    Since the stream implementer is not expected to overwrite
    .end() the finish event is necessary in order to know when
    no more data can be written

  5. stream: do only fake drain when unpiped stream is the source

    If the destination had multiply read streams piped to it,
    they would all decrease the awaitDrain state and thereby
    start the flow
    AndreasMadsen committed with isaacs Dec 22, 2012
  6. stream: fix event handler leak in readstream pipe and unpipe

    After a stream was unpiped there would stil be residual event handlers

  1. net: allow socket end before connect

    Fix a bug where calling .end() on a socket without calling .connect() first
    throws a TypeError:
    
      TypeError: Cannot read property 'shutdown' of undefined
          at Socket.onSocketFinish (net.js:194:20)
          at Socket.EventEmitter.emit (events.js:91:17)
          at Socket.Writable.end (_stream_writable.js:281:10)

  1. build: allow to specify custom tags

    When building custom `node` versions (e.g., floating features/fixes from
    different versions) it's often useful to specify a custom tag which
    easily identifies build when invoking `node -v`.
    
    Introduce a way to specify this tag in `node_version.h` file or by
    running `./configure --tag="<tag>"`. Insert it right after the patch
    version (and before `-pre`, if build is not a release).
    
    Closes #4452.
