2015-08-04, Version 3.0.0, @rvagg

Notable changes

  • buffer:
    • Due to changes in V8, it has been necessary to reimplement Buffer on top of V8's Uint8Array. Every effort has been made to minimize the performance impact, however Buffer instantiation is measurably slower. Access operations may be faster in some circumstances but the exact performance profile and difference over previous versions will depend on how Buffer is used within applications. (Trevor Norris) #1825.
    • Buffer can now take ArrayBuffers as a constructor argument (Trevor Norris) #2002.
    • When a single buffer is passed to Buffer.concat(), a new, copied Buffer object will be returned; previous behavior was to return the original Buffer object (Sakthipriyan Vairamani) #1937.
  • build: PPC support has been added to core to allow compiling on pLinux BE and LE (AIX support coming soon) (Michael Dawson) #2124.
  • dgram: If an error occurs within socket.send() and a callback has been provided, the error is only passed as the first argument to the callback and not emitted on the socket object; previous behavior was to do both (Matteo Collina & Chris Dickinson) #1796
  • freelist: Deprecate the undocumented freelist core module (Sakthipriyan Vairamani) #2176.
  • http:
    • Status codes now all use the official IANA names as per RFC7231, e.g. http.STATUS_CODES[414] now returns 'URI Too Long' rather than 'Request-URI Too Large' (jomo) #1470.
    • Calling .getName() on an HTTP agent no longer returns a trailing colon, HTTPS agents will no longer return an extra colon near the middle of the string (Brendan Ashworth) #1617.
  • node:
    • NODE_MODULE_VERSION has been bumped to 45 to reflect the break in ABI (Rod Vagg) #2096.
    • Introduce a new process.release object that contains a name property set to 'io.js' and sourceUrl, headersUrl and libUrl (Windows only) properties containing URLs for the relevant resources; this is intended to be used by node-gyp (Rod Vagg) #2154.
    • The version of node-gyp bundled with io.js now downloads and uses a tarball of header files from iojs.org rather than the full source for compiling native add-ons; it is hoped this is a temporary floating patch and the change will be upstreamed to node-gyp soon (Rod Vagg) #2066.
  • repl: Persistent history is now enabled by default. The history file is located at ~/.node_repl_history, which can be overridden by the new environment variable NODE_REPL_HISTORY. This deprecates the previous NODE_REPL_HISTORY_FILE variable. Additionally, the format of the file has been changed to plain text to better handle file corruption. (Jeremiah Senkpiel) #2224.
  • smalloc: The smalloc module has been removed as it is no longer possible to provide the API due to changes in V8 (Ben Noordhuis) #2022.
  • tls: Add server.getTicketKeys() and server.setTicketKeys() methods for TLS session key rotation (Fedor Indutny) #2227.
  • v8: Upgraded to 4.4.63.26
    • ES6: Enabled computed property names
    • ES6: Array can now be subclassed in strict mode
    • ES6: Implement rest parameters in staging, use the --harmony-rest-parameters command line flag
    • ES6: Implement the spread operator in staging, use the --harmony-spreadcalls command line flag
    • Removed SetIndexedPropertiesToExternalArrayData and related APIs, forcing a shift to Buffer to be reimplemented based on Uint8Array
    • Introduction of Maybe and MaybeLocal C++ API for objects which may or may not have a value.
    • Added support for PPC

2015-07-04, Version 2.3.3, @Fishrock123

Notable changes

  • deps: Fixed an out-of-band write in utf8 decoder. This is an important security update as it can be used to cause a denial of service attack.

Known issues

See https://github.com/nodejs/node/labels/confirmed-bug for complete and current list of known issues.

  • Some problems with unreferenced timers running during beforeExit are still to be resolved. See #1264.
  • Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal. #690
  • process.send() is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see #760.
  • Calling dns.setServers() while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion. #894
  • url.resolve may transfer the auth portion of the url when resolving between two full hosts, see #1435.

Commits

2015-06-23, Version 2.3.1, @rvagg

Notable changes

  • module: The number of syscalls made during a require() have been significantly reduced again (see #1801 from v2.2.0 for previous work), which should lead to a performance improvement (Pierre Inglebert) #1920.
  • npm:
  • zlib: A bug was discovered where the process would abort if the final part of a zlib decompression results in a buffer that would exceed the maximum length of 0x3fffffff bytes (~1GiB). This was likely to only occur during buffered decompression (rather than streaming). This is now fixed and will instead result in a thrown RangeError (Michaël Zasso) #1811.

2015-06-01, Version 2.2.1, @rvagg

Notable changes

  • http: Reverts the move of the client property of IncomingMessage to its prototype. Although undocumented, this property was used and assumed to be an "own property" in the wild, most notably by request which is used by npm. (Michaël Zasso) #1852.

Known issues

See https://github.com/nodejs/node/labels/confirmed-bug for complete and current list of known issues.

  • Some problems with unreferenced timers running during beforeExit are still to be resolved. See #1264.
  • Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal #690
  • process.send() is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see #760 and fix in #774
  • Calling dns.setServers() while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion #894
  • url.resolve may transfer the auth portion of the url when resolving between two full hosts, see #1435.

  • [4d6b768e5d] - http: revert deprecation of client property (Michaël Zasso) #1852

2015-05-31, Version 2.2.0, @rvagg

Notable changes

  • node: Speed-up require() by replacing usage of fs.statSync() and fs.readFileSync() with internal variants that are faster for this use-case and do not create as many objects for the garbage collector to clean up. The primary two benefits are: significant increase in application start-up time on typical applications and better start-up time for the debugger by eliminating almost all of the thousands of exception events. (Ben Noordhuis) #1801.
  • node: Resolution of pre-load modules (-r or --require) now follows the standard require() rules rather than just resolving paths, so you can now pre-load modules in node_modules. (Ali Ijaz Sheikh) #1812.
  • npm: Upgraded npm to v2.11.0. New hooks for preversion, version, and postversion lifecycle events, some SPDX-related license changes and license file inclusions. See the release notes for full details.

2015-05-24, Version 2.1.0, @rvagg

Notable changes

  • crypto: Diffie-Hellman key exchange (DHE) parameters ('dhparams') must now be 1024 bits or longer or an error will be thrown. A warning will also be printed to the console if you supply less than 2048 bits. See https://weakdh.org/ for further context on this security concern. (Shigeki Ohtsu) #1739.
  • node: A new --trace-sync-io command line flag will print a warning and a stack trace whenever a synchronous API is used. This can be used to track down synchronous calls that may be slowing down an application. (Trevor Norris) #1707.
  • node: To allow for chaining of methods, the setTimeout(), setKeepAlive(), setNoDelay(), ref() and unref() methods used in 'net', 'dgram', 'http', 'https' and 'tls' now return the current instance instead of undefined (Roman Reiss & Evan Lucas) #1699 #1768 #1779.
  • npm: Upgraded to v2.10.1, release notes can be found in https://github.com/npm/npm/releases/tag/v2.10.1 and https://github.com/npm/npm/releases/tag/v2.10.0.
  • util: A significant speed-up (in the order of 35%) for the common-case of a single string argument to util.format(), used by console.log() (Сковорода Никита Андреевич) #1749.

Known issues

  • Some problems with unreferenced timers running during beforeExit are still to be resolved. See #1264.
  • Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal #690
  • process.send() is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see #760 and fix in #774
  • Calling dns.setServers() while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion #894
  • url.resolve may transfer the auth portion of the url when resolving between two full hosts, see #1435.

Commits

2015-05-15, Version 2.0.2, @Fishrock123

Notable changes

  • win,node-gyp: the delay-load hook for windows addons has now been correctly enabled by default, it had wrongly defaulted to off in the release version of 2.0.0 (Bert Belder) #1433
  • os: tmpdir()'s trailing slash stripping has been refined to fix an issue when the temp directory is at '/'. Also considers which slash is used by the operating system. (cjihrig) #1673
  • tls: default ciphers have been updated to use gcm and aes128 (Mike MacCana) #1660
  • build: v8 snapshots have been re-enabled by default as suggested by the v8 team, since prior security issues have been resolved. This should give some perf improvements to both startup and vm context creation. (Trevor Norris) #1663
  • src: fixed preload modules not working when other flags were used before --require (Yosuke Furukawa) #1694
  • dgram: fixed send()'s callback not being asynchronous (Yosuke Furukawa) #1313

2015-05-04, Version 2.0.0, @rvagg

Breaking changes

Full details at https://github.com/nodejs/node/wiki/Breaking-Changes#200-from-1x

  • V8 upgrade to 4.2, minor changes to C++ API
  • os.tmpdir() is now cross-platform consistent and no longer returns a path with a trailing slash on any platform
  • While not a breaking change the 'smalloc' module has been deprecated in anticipation of it becoming unsupportable with a future upgrade to V8 4.4. See #1451 for further information.

Note: a new version of the 'url' module was reverted prior to release as it was decided the potential for breakage across the npm ecosystem was too great and that more compatibility work needed to be done before releasing it. See #1602 for further information.

Notable changes

  • crypto: significantly reduced memory usage for TLS (Fedor Indutny & Сковорода Никита Андреевич) #1529
  • net: socket.connect() now accepts a 'lookup' option for a custom DNS resolution mechanism, defaults to dns.lookup() (Evan Lucas) #1505
  • npm: Upgrade npm to 2.9.0. See the v2.8.4 and v2.9.0 release notes for details. Notable items:
    • Add support for default author field to make npm init -y work without user-input (@othiym23) npm/npm/d8eee6cf9d
    • Include local modules in npm outdated and npm update (@ArnaudRinquin) npm/npm#7426
    • The prefix used before the version number on npm version is now configurable via tag-version-prefix (@kkragenbrink) npm/npm#8014
  • os: os.tmpdir() is now cross-platform consistent and will no longer returns a path with a trailing slash on any platform (Christian Tellnes) #747
  • process:
    • process.nextTick() performance has been improved by between 2-42% across the benchmark suite, notable because this is heavily used across core (Brian White) #1571
    • New process.geteuid(), process.seteuid(id), process.getegid() and process.setegid(id) methods allow you to get and set effective UID and GID of the process (Evan Lucas) #1536
  • repl:
    • REPL history can be persisted across sessions if the NODE_REPL_HISTORY_FILE environment variable is set to a user accessible file, NODE_REPL_HISTORY_SIZE can set the maximum history size and defaults to 1000 (Chris Dickinson) #1513
    • The REPL can be placed in to one of three modes using the NODE_REPL_MODE environment variable: sloppy, strict or magic (default); the new magic mode will automatically run "strict mode only" statements in strict mode (Chris Dickinson) #1513
  • smalloc: the 'smalloc' module has been deprecated due to changes coming in V8 4.4 that will render it unusable
  • util: add Promise, Map and Set inspection support (Christopher Monsanto) #1471
  • V8: upgrade to 4.2.77.18, see the ChangeLog for full details. Notable items:
    • Classes have moved out of staging; the class keyword is now usable in strict mode without flags
    • Object literal enhancements have moved out of staging; shorthand method and property syntax is now usable ({ method() { }, property })
    • Rest parameters (function(...args) {}) are implemented in staging behind the --harmony-rest-parameters flag
    • Computed property names ({['foo'+'bar']:'bam'}) are implemented in staging behind the --harmony-computed-property-names flag
    • Unicode escapes ('\u{xxxx}') are implemented in staging behind the --harmony_unicode flag and the --harmony_unicode_regexps flag for use in regular expressions
  • Windows:
    • Random process termination on Windows fixed (Fedor Indutny) #1512 / #1563
    • The delay-load hook introduced to fix issues with process naming (iojs.exe / node.exe) has been made opt-out for native add-ons. Native add-ons should include 'win_delay_load_hook': 'false' in their binding.gyp to disable this feature if they experience problems . (Bert Belder) #1433
  • Governance:
    • Rod Vagg (@rvagg) was added to the Technical Committee (TC)
    • Jeremiah Senkpiel (@Fishrock123) was added to the Technical Committee (TC)

2015-04-14, Version 1.7.1, @rvagg

Notable changes

  • build: A syntax error in the Makefile for release builds caused 1.7.0 to be DOA and unreleased. (Rod Vagg) #1421.

Known issues

  • Some problems with unreferenced timers running during beforeExit are still to be resolved. See #1264.

  • readline: split escapes are processed incorrectly, see #1403

Commits

2015-04-14, Version 1.7.0, @rvagg

Notable changes

  • C++ API: Fedor Indutny contributed a feature to V8 which has been backported to the V8 bundled in io.js. SealHandleScope allows a C++ add-on author to seal a HandleScope to prevent further, unintended allocations within it. Currently only enabled for debug builds of io.js. This feature helped detect the leak in #1075 and is now activated on the root HandleScope in io.js. (Fedor Indutny) #1395.
  • ARM: This release includes significant work to improve the state of ARM support for builds and tests. The io.js CI cluster's ARMv6, ARMv7 and ARMv8 build servers are now all (mostly) reporting passing builds and tests.
    • ARMv8 64-bit (AARCH64) is now properly supported, including a backported fix in libuv that was mistakenly detecting the existence of epoll_wait(). (Ben Noordhuis) #1365.
    • ARMv6: #1376 reported a problem with Math.exp() on ARMv6 (incl Raspberry Pi). The culprit is erroneous codegen for ARMv6 when using the "fast math" feature of V8. --nofast_math has been turned on for all ARMv6 variants by default to avoid this, fast math can be turned back on with --fast_math. (Ben Noordhuis) #1398.
    • Tests: timeouts have been tuned specifically for slower platforms, detected as ARMv6 and ARMv7. (Roman Reiss) #1366.
  • npm: Upgrade npm to 2.7.6. See the release notes for details. Summary:
    • b747593#7630 Don't automatically log all git failures as errors. maybeGithub needs to be able to fail without logging to support its fallback logic. (@othiym23)
    • 78005eb#7743 Always quote arguments passed to npm run-script. This allows build systems and the like to safely escape glob patterns passed as arguments to run-scripts with npm run-script <script> -- <arguments>. This is a tricky change to test, and may be reverted or moved to npm@3 if it turns out it breaks things for users. (@mantoni)
    • da015ee#7074 read-package-json@1.3.3: read-package-json no longer caches package.json files, which trades a very small performance loss for the elimination of a large class of really annoying race conditions. See #7074 for the grisly details. (@othiym23)

Known issues

  • Some problems with unreferenced timers running during beforeExit are still to be resolved. See #1264.
  • Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal #690
  • process.send() is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see #760 and fix in #774

2015-04-06, Version 1.6.4, @Fishrock123

Notable changes

  • npm: upgrade npm to 2.7.5. See npm CHANGELOG.md for details. Includes two important security fixes. Summary:
    • 300834e tar@2.0.0: Normalize symbolic links that point to targets outside the extraction root. This prevents packages containing symbolic links from overwriting targets outside the expected paths for a package. Thanks to Tim Cuthbertson and the team at Lift Security for working with the npm team to identify this issue. (@othiym23)
    • 0dc6875 semver@4.3.2: Package versions can be no more than 256 characters long. This prevents a situation in which parsing the version number can use exponentially more time and memory to parse, leading to a potential denial of service. Thanks to Adam Baldwin at Lift Security for bringing this to our attention. (@isaacs)
    • eab6184 #7766 One last tweak to ensure that GitHub shortcuts work with private repositories. (@iarna)
    • a840a13 #7746 Only fix up git URL paths when there are paths to fix up. (@othiym23)
  • openssl: preliminary work has been done for an upcoming upgrade to OpenSSL 1.0.2a #1325 (Shigeki Ohtsu). See #589 for additional details.
  • timers: a minor memory leak when timers are unreferenced was fixed, alongside some related timers issues #1330 (Fedor Indutny). This appears to have fixed the remaining leak reported in #1075.
  • android: it is now possible to compile io.js for Android and related devices #1307 (Giovanny Andres Gongora Granada).

Known issues

  • Some problems with unreferenced timers running during beforeExit are still to be resolved. See #1264.
  • Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal #690
  • Not possible to build io.js as a static library #686
  • process.send() is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see #760 and fix in #774
  • Calling dns.setServers() while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion #894

Commits

2015-03-31, Version 1.6.3, @rvagg

Notable changes

  • fs: corruption can be caused by fs.writeFileSync() and append-mode fs.writeFile() and fs.writeFileSync() under certain circumstances, reported in #1058, fixed in #1063 (Olov Lassus).
  • iojs: an "internal modules" API has been introduced to allow core code to share JavaScript modules internally only without having to expose them as a public API, this feature is for core-only #848 (Vladimir Kurchatkin).
  • timers: two minor problems with timers have been fixed:
    • Timer#close() is now properly idempotent #1288 (Petka Antonov).
    • setTimeout() will only run the callback once now after an unref() during the callback #1231 (Roman Reiss).
    • NOTE: there are still other unresolved concerns with the timers code, such as #1152.
  • Windows: a "delay-load hook" has been added for compiled add-ons on Windows that should alleviate some of the problems that Windows users may be experiencing with add-ons in io.js #1251 (Bert Belder).
  • V8: minor bug-fix upgrade for V8 to 4.1.0.27.
  • npm: upgrade npm to 2.7.4. See npm CHANGELOG.md for details. Summary:
    • 1549106 #7641 Due to 448efd0, running npm shrinkwrap --dev caused production dependencies to no longer be included in npm-shrinkwrap.json. Whoopsie! (@othiym23)
    • fb0ac26 #7579 Only block removing files and links when we're sure npm isn't responsible for them. This change is hard to summarize, because if things are working correctly you should never see it, but if you want more context, just go read the commit message, which lays it all out. (@othiym23)
    • 051c473 #7552 bundledDependencies are now properly included in the installation context. This is another fantastically hard-to-summarize bug, and once again, I encourage you to read the commit message if you're curious about the details. The snappy takeaway is that this unbreaks many use cases for ember-cli. (@othiym23)
    • fe1bc38#7672 npm-registry-client@3.1.2: Fix client-side certificate handling by correcting property name. (@atamon)
    • 89ce829#7630 hosted-git-info@1.5.3: Part 3 of ensuring that GitHub shorthand is handled consistently. (@othiym23)
    • 63313eb#7630 realize-package-specifier@2.2.0: Part 2 of ensuring that GitHub shorthand is handled consistently. (@othiym23)
    • 3ed41bf#7630 npm-package-arg@3.1.1: Part 1 of ensuring that GitHub shorthand is handled consistently. (@othiym23)

Known issues

  • Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal #690
  • Not possible to build io.js as a static library #686

2015-03-23, Version 1.6.2, @rvagg

Notable changes

  • Windows: The ongoing work in improving the state of Windows support has resulted in full test suite passes once again. As noted in the release notes for v1.4.2, CI system and configuration problems prevented it from properly reporting problems with the Windows tests, the problems with the CI and the codebase appear to have been fully resolved.
  • FreeBSD: A kernel bug impacting io.js/Node.js was discovered and a patch has been introduced to prevent it causing problems for io.js (Fedor Indutny) #1218.
  • module: you can now require('.') instead of having to require('./'), this is considered a bugfix (Michaël Zasso) #1185.
  • v8: updated to 4.1.0.25 including patches for --max_old_space_size values above 4096 and Solaris support, both of which are already included in io.js.

Known issues

  • Possible small memory leak(s) may still exist but have yet to be properly identified, details at #1075.
  • Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal #690
  • Not possible to build io.js as a static library #686
  • process.send() is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see #760 and fix in #774
  • Calling dns.setServers() while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion #894

2015-03-20, Version 1.6.1, @rvagg

Notable changes

  • path: New type-checking on path.resolve() #1153 uncovered some edge-cases being relied upon in the wild, most notably path.dirname(undefined). Type-checking has been loosened for path.dirname(), path.basename(), and path.extname() (Colin Ihrig) #1216.
  • querystring: Internal optimizations in querystring.parse() and querystring.stringify() #847 prevented Number literals from being properly converted via querystring.escape() #1208, exposing a blind-spot in the test suite. The bug and the tests have now been fixed (Jeremiah Senkpiel) #1213.

Known issues

  • Possible remaining TLS-related memory leak(s), details at #1075.
  • Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal #690
  • Not possible to build io.js as a static library #686
  • process.send() is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see #760 and fix in #774
  • Calling dns.setServers() while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion #894

2015-03-19, Version 1.6.0, @chrisdickinson

Notable changes

  • node: a new -r or --require command-line option can be used to pre-load modules at start-up (Ali Ijaz Sheikh) #881.
  • querystring: parse() and stringify() are now faster (Brian White) #847.
  • http: the http.ClientRequest#flush() method has been deprecated and replaced with http.ClientRequest#flushHeaders() to match the same change now in Node.js v0.12 as per joyent/node#9048 (Yosuke Furukawa) #1156.
  • net: allow server.listen() to accept a String option for port, e.g. { port: "1234" }, to match the same option being accepted in net.connect() as of joyent/node#9268 (Ben Noordhuis) #1116.
  • tls: further work on the reported memory leak although there appears to be a minor leak remaining for the use-case in question, track progress at #1075.
  • v8: backport a fix for an integer overflow when --max_old_space_size values above 4096 are used (Ben Noordhuis) #1166.
  • platforms: the io.js CI system now reports passes on FreeBSD and SmartOS (Solaris).
  • npm: upgrade npm to 2.7.1. See npm CHANGELOG.md for details. Summary:
    • 6823807 #7121 npm install --save for Git dependencies saves the URL passed in, instead of the temporary directory used to clone the remote repo. Fixes using Git dependencies when shrinkwwapping. In the process, rewrote the Git dependency caching code. Again. No more single-letter variable names, and a much clearer workflow. (@othiym23)
    • abdd040 read-package-json@1.3.2: Provide more helpful error messages when JSON parse errors are encountered by using a more forgiving JSON parser than JSON.parse. (@smikes)
    • c56cfcd #7525 npm dedupe handles scoped packages. (@KidkArolis)
    • 4ef1412 #7075 If you try to tag a release as a valid semver range, npm publish and npm tag will error early instead of proceeding. (@smikes)

2015-03-09, Version 1.5.1, @rvagg

Notable changes

  • tls: The reported TLS memory leak has been at least partially resolved via various commits in this release. Current testing indicated that there may still be some leak problems. Track complete progress at #1075.
  • http: Fixed an error reported at joyent/node#9348 and npm/npm#7349. Pending data was not being fully read upon an 'error' event leading to an assertion failure on socket.destroy(). (Fedor Indutny) #1103

Known issues

  • Possible remaining TLS-related memory leak(s), details at #1075.
  • Windows still reports some minor test failures and we are continuing to address all of these as a priority. See #1005.
  • Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal #690
  • Not possible to build io.js as a static library #686
  • process.send() is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see #760 and fix in #774
  • Calling dns.setServers() while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion #894

2015-03-06, Version 1.5.0, @rvagg

Notable changes

  • buffer: New Buffer#indexOf() method, modelled off Array#indexOf(). Accepts a String, Buffer or a Number. Strings are interpreted as UTF8. (Trevor Norris) #561
  • fs: options object properties in 'fs' methods no longer perform a hasOwnProperty() check, thereby allowing options objects to have prototype properties that apply. (Jonathan Ong) #635
  • tls: A likely TLS memory leak was reported by PayPal. Some of the recent changes in stream_wrap appear to be to blame. The initial fix is in #1078, you can track the progress toward closing the leak at #1075 (Fedor Indutny).
  • npm: Upgrade npm to 2.7.0. See npm CHANGELOG.md for details including why this is a semver-minor when it could have been semver-major. Summary:
    • 145af65 #4887 Replace calls to the node-gyp script bundled with npm by passing the --node-gyp=/path/to/node-gyp option to npm. Swap in pangyp or a version of node-gyp modified to work better with io.js without having to touch npm's code! (@ackalker)
    • 2f6a1df #1999 Only run stop and start scripts (plus their pre- and post- scripts) when there's no restart script defined. This makes it easier to support graceful restarts of services managed by npm. (@watilde / @scien)
    • 448efd0 #2853 Add support for --dev and --prod to npm ls, so that you can list only the trees of production or development dependencies, as desired. (@watilde)
    • a0a8777 #7463 Split the list printed by npm run-script into lifecycle scripts and scripts directly invoked via npm run-script. (@watilde)
    • a5edc17 #6749 init-package-json@1.3.1: Support for passing scopes to npm init so packages are initialized as part of that scope / organization / team. (@watilde)
  • TC: Colin Ihrig (@cjihrig) resigned from the TC due to his desire to do more code and fewer meetings.

2015-03-02, Version 1.4.3, @rvagg

Notable changes

  • stream: Fixed problems for platforms without writev() support, particularly Windows. Changes introduced in 1.4.1, via #926, broke some functionality for these platforms, this has now been addressed. #1008 (Fedor Indutny)
  • arm: We have the very beginnings of ARMv8 / ARM64 / AARCH64 support. An upgrade to OpenSSL 1.0.2 is one requirement for full support. #1028 (Ben Noordhuis)
  • Add new collaborator: Julian Duque (@julianduque)

Known issues

  • Windows still reports some minor test failures and we are continuing to address all of these ASAP. See #1005.
  • Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal #690
  • Not possible to build io.js as a static library #686
  • process.send() is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see #760 and fix in #774
  • Calling dns.setServers() while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion #894

Commits

2015-02-28, Version 1.4.2, @rvagg

Notable changes

  • tls: A typo introduced in the TLSWrap changes in #840 only encountered as a bug on Windows was not caught by the io.js CI system due to problems with the Windows build script and the Windows CI configuration, see Known Issues below. Fixed in #994 & #1004. (Fedor Indutny)
  • npm: Upgrade npm to 2.6.1. See npm CHANGELOG.md for details. Summary:
    • 8b98f0e #4471 npm outdated (and only npm outdated) now defaults to --depth=0. This also has the excellent but unexpected effect of making npm update -g work the way almost everyone wants it to. See the docs for --depth for the mildly confusing details. (@smikes)

Known issues

  • Windows support has some outstanding failures that have not been properly picked up by the io.js CI system due to a combination of factors including human, program and Jenkins errors. See #1005 for details & discussion. Expect these problems to be addressed ASAP.
  • Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal #690
  • Not possible to build io.js as a static library #686
  • process.send() is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see #760 and fix in #774

2015-02-26, Version 1.4.1, @rvagg

Note: version 1.4.0 was tagged and built but not released. A libuv bug was discovered in the process so the release was aborted. The tag was straight after a558cd0a61 but has since been removed. We have jumped to 1.4.1 to avoid confusion.

Notable changes

  • process / promises: An 'unhandledRejection' event is now emitted on process whenever a Promise is rejected and no error handler is attached to the Promise within a turn of the event loop. A 'rejectionHandled' event is now emitted whenever a Promise was rejected and an error handler was attached to it later than after an event loop turn. See the process documentation for more detail. #758 (Petka Antonov)
  • streams: you can now use regular streams as an underlying socket for tls.connect() #926 (Fedor Indutny)
  • http: A new 'abort' event emitted when a http.ClientRequest is aborted by the client. #945 (Evan Lucas)
  • V8: Upgrade V8 to 4.1.0.21. Includes an embargoed fix, details should be available at https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=430201 when embargo is lifted. A breaking ABI change has been held back from this upgrade, possibly to be included when io.js merges V8 4.2. See #952 for discussion.
  • npm: Upgrade npm to 2.6.0. Includes features to support the new registry and to prepare for npm@3. See npm CHANGELOG.md for details. Summary:
    • 38c4825 #5068 Add new logout command, and make it do something useful on both bearer-based and basic-based authed clients. (@othiym23)
    • c8e08e6 #6565 Warn that peerDependency behavior is changing and add a note to the docs. (@othiym23)
    • 7c81a5f #7171 Warn that engineStrict in package.json will be going away in the next major version of npm (coming soon!) (@othiym23)
  • libuv: Upgrade to 1.4.2. See libuv ChangeLog for details of fixes.

Commits

2015-02-10, Version 1.2.0, @rvagg

Notable changes

  • stream:
    • Simpler stream construction, see readable-stream/issues#102 for details. This extends the streams base objects to make their constructors accept default implementation methods, reducing the boilerplate required to implement custom streams. An updated version of readable-stream will eventually be released to match this change in core. (@sonewman)
  • dns:
    • lookup() now supports an 'all' boolean option, default to false but when turned on will cause the method to return an array of all resolved names for an address, see, #744 (@silverwind)
  • assert:
    • Remove prototype property comparison in deepEqual(), considered a bugfix, see #636 (@vkurchatkin)
    • Introduce a deepStrictEqual() method to mirror deepEqual() but performs strict equality checks on primitives, see #639 (@vkurchatkin)
  • tracing:
    • Add LTTng (Linux Trace Toolkit Next Generation) when compiled with the --with-lttng option. Trace points match those available for DTrace and ETW. #702 (@thekemkid)
  • docs:
    • Lots of doc updates, see individual commits
    • New Errors page discussing JavaScript errors, V8 specifics, and io.js specific error details. (@chrisdickinson)
  • npm upgrade to 2.5.1, short changelog:
  • libuv upgrade to 1.4.0, see libuv ChangeLog
  • Add new collaborators:
    • Aleksey Smolenchuk (@lxe)
    • Shigeki Ohtsu (@shigeki)

Known issues

  • Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal #690
  • Not possible to build io.js as a static library #686
  • process.send() is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see #760 and fix in #774 that should appear in the next patch release.

Rebuild due to stale build worker git reflogs for 1.0.0 release

  • doc: improve write style consistency (Rui Marinho)
  • win,msi: correct doc website link (Bert Belder)

Below is a summary of the user-facing changes to be found in the io.js v1.0.0 release as compared to the current stable Node.js release, v0.10.35. At the time of the v1.0.0 release, the latest unstable Node.js release is v0.11.14 with much progress made towards a v0.11.15 release. The io.js codebase inherits the majority of the changes found in the v0.11 branch of the joyent/node repository and therefore can be seen as an extension to v0.11.

Summary of changes from Node.js v0.10.35 to io.js v1.0.0

General

  • The V8 JavaScript engine bundled with io.js was upgraded dramatically, from version 3.14.5.9 in Node.js v0.10.35 and 3.26.33 in Node.js v0.11.14 to 3.31.74.1 for io.js v1.0.0. This brings along many fixes and performance improvements, as well as additional support for new ES6 language features! For more information on this, check out the io.js ES6 page.
  • Other bundled technologies were upgraded:
    • c-ares: 1.9.0-DEV to 1.10.0-DEV
    • http_parser: 1.0 to 2.3
    • libuv: 0.10.30 to 1.2.0
    • npm: 1.4.28 to 2.1.18
    • openssl: 1.0.1j to 1.0.1k
    • punycode: 1.2.0 to 1.3.2.
  • Performance and stability improvements on all platforms.

buffer

https://iojs.org/api/buffer.html

  • Added buf.writeUIntLE, buf.writeUIntBE, buf.writeIntLE, buf.writeIntBE, buf.readUIntLE, buf.readUIntBE, buf.readIntLE and buf.readIntBE methods that read and write value up to 6 bytes.
  • Added Buffer.compare() which does a memcmp() on two Buffer instances. Instances themselves also have a compare().
  • Added buffer.equals() that checks equality of Buffers by their contents.
  • Added new Buffer(otherBuffer) constructor.
  • Tweaked SlowBuffer's semantics.
  • Updated the output of buffer.toJSON() to not be the same as an array. Instead it is an object specifically tagged as a buffer, which can be recovered by passing it to (a new overload of) the Buffer constructor.

child_process

https://iojs.org/api/child_process.html

  • Added a shell option to child_process.exec.
  • Added synchronous counterparts for the child process functions: child_process.spawnSync, child_process.execSync, and child_process.execFileSync.

console

https://iojs.org/api/console.html

  • Added an options parameter to console.dir.

cluster

https://iojs.org/api/cluster.html

  • Updated cluster to use round-robin load balancing by default on non-Windows platforms. The scheduling policy is configurable however.
  • --debug has been made cluster-aware.
  • Many bug fixes.

crypto

https://iojs.org/api/crypto.html

  • Added support for custom generator values to DiffieHellman (defaulting to 2 for backwards compatibility).
  • Added support for custom pbkdf2 digest methods.
  • Added support for elliptic curve-based Diffie-Hellman.
  • Added support for loading and setting the engine for some/all OpenSSL functions.
  • Added support for passing in a passphrase for decrypting the signing key to Sign.sign().
  • Added support for private key passphrase in every method that accepts it.

https://iojs.org/api/dgram.html

  • Added support for receiving empty UDP packets.

dns

https://iojs.org/api/dns.html

  • Added dns.resolveSoa, dns.getServers, and dns.setServers methods.
  • Added hostname on error messages when available.
  • Improved error handling consistency.

events

https://iojs.org/api/events.html

  • Added chaining support to EventEmitter.setMaxListeners.
  • Updated require('events') to return the EventEmitter constructor, allowing the module to be used like var EventEmitter = require('events') instead of var EventEmitter = require('events').EventEmitter.

fs

https://iojs.org/api/fs.html

  • Added fs.access, and deprecated fs.exists. Please read the documentation carefully.
  • Added more informative errors and method call site details when the NODE_DEBUG environment is set to ease debugging.
  • Added option to fs.watch for recursive sub-directory support (OS X only).
  • Fixed missing callbacks errors just being printed instead of thrown.

http

https://iojs.org/api/http.html

  • Added support for response.write and response.end to receive a callback to know when the operation completes.
  • Added support for 308 status code (see RFC 7238).
  • Added http.METHODS array, listing the HTTP methods supported by the parser.
  • Added request.flush method.
  • Added response.getHeader('header') method that may be used before headers are flushed.
  • Added response.statusMessage property.
  • Added Client Keep-Alive behavior. Set keepAlive:true in request options to reuse connections indefinitely.
  • Added rawHeaders and rawTrailers members on incoming message.
  • Removed default chunked encoding on DELETE and OPTIONS.

net

https://iojs.org/api/net.html

  • Changed net.Server.listen such that, when the bind address is omitted, IPv6 is tried first, and IPv4 is used as a fallback.

os

https://iojs.org/api/os.html

  • Added MAC addresses, netmasks and scope IDs for IPv6 addresses to os.networkInterfaces method output.
  • Updated os.tmpdir on Windows to use the %SystemRoot% or %WINDIR% environment variables instead of the hard-coded value of c:\windows when determining the temporary directory location.

path

https://iojs.org/api/path.html

  • Added path.isAbsolute and path.parse methods.
  • Added path.win32 and path.posix objects that contain platform-specific versions of the various path functions.
  • Improved path.join performance.

process

https://iojs.org/api/process.html

  • Added beforeExit event.
  • Added process.mainModule and process.exitCode.

querystring

https://iojs.org/api/querystring.html

  • Added the ability to pass custom versions of encodeURIComponent and decodeURIComponent when stringifying or parsing a querystring.
  • Fixed several issues with the formatting of query strings in edge cases.

smalloc

https://iojs.org/api/smalloc.html

smalloc is a new core module for doing (external) raw memory allocation/deallocation/copying in JavaScript.

streams

https://iojs.org/api/stream.html

The changes to streams are not as drastic as the transition from streams1 to streams2: they are a refinement of existing ideas, and should make the API slightly less surprising for humans and faster for computers. As a whole the changes are referred to as "streams3", but the changes should largely go unnoticed by the majority of stream consumers and implementers.

Readable streams

The distinction between "flowing" and "non-flowing" modes has been refined. Entering "flowing" mode is no longer an irreversible operation—it is possible to return to "non-flowing" mode from "flowing" mode. Additionally, the two modes now flow through the same machinery instead of replacing methods. Any time data is returned as a result of a .read call that data will also be emitted on the "data" event.

As before, adding a listener for the "readable" or "data" event will start flowing the stream; as will piping to another stream.

Writable streams

The ability to "bulk write" to underlying resources has been added to Writable streams. For stream implementers, one can signal that a stream is bulk-writable by specifying a _writev method. Bulk writes will occur in two situations:

  1. When a bulk-writable stream is clearing its backlog of buffered write requests,
  2. or if an end user has made use of the new .cork() and .uncork() API methods.

.cork and .uncork allow the end user to control the buffering behavior of writable streams separate from exerting backpressure. .cork indicates that the stream should accept new writes (up to highWaterMark), while .uncork resets that behavior and attempts to bulk-write all buffered writes to the underlying resource.

The only core stream API that currently implements _writev is net.Socket.

In addition to the bulk-write changes, the performance of repeated small writes to non-bulk-writable streams (such as fs.WriteStream) has been drastically improved. Users piping high volume log streams to disk should see an improvement.

For a detailed overview of how streams3 interact, see this diagram.

timers

https://iojs.org/api/timers.html

  • Removed process.maxTickDepth, allowing process.nextTick to be used recursively without limit.
  • Updated setImmediate to process the full queue each turn of the event loop, instead of one per queue.

tls

https://iojs.org/api/tls.html

  • Added detailed boolean flag to getPeerCertificate to return detailed certificate information (with raw DER bytes).
  • Added renegotiate(options, callback) method for session renegotiation.
  • Added setMaxSendFragment method for varying TLS fragment size.
  • Added a dhparam option for DH ciphers.
  • Added a ticketKeys option for TLS ticket AES encryption keys setup.
  • Added async OCSP-stapling callback.
  • Added async session storage events.
  • Added async SNI callback.
  • Added multi-key server support (for example, ECDSA+RSA server).
  • Added optional callback to checkServerIdentity for manual certificate validation in userland.
  • Added support for ECDSA/ECDHE cipher.
  • Implemented TLS streams in C++, boosting their performance.
  • Moved createCredentials to tls and renamed it to createSecureContext.
  • Removed SSLv2 and SSLv3 support.

url

https://iojs.org/api/url.html

  • Improved escaping of certain characters.
  • Improved parsing speed.

util

https://iojs.org/api/util.html

  • Added util.debuglog.
  • Added a plethora of new type-testing methods. See the docs.
  • Updated util.format to receive several changes:
    • -0 is now displayed as such, instead of as 0.
    • Anything that is instanceof Error is now formatted as an error.
    • Circular references in JavaScript objects are now handled for the %j specifier.
    • Custom inspect functions are now allowed to return an object.
    • Custom inspect functions now receive any arguments passed to util.inspect.

v8

https://iojs.org/api/v8.html

v8 is a new core module for interfacing directly with the V8 engine.

vm

https://iojs.org/api/vm.html

The vm module has been rewritten to work better, based on the excellent Contextify native module. All of the functionality of Contextify is now in core, with improvements!

  • Added vm.isContext(object) method to determine whether object has been contextified.
  • Added vm.runInDebugContext(code) method to compile and execute code inside the V8 debug context.
  • Updated vm.createContext(sandbox) to "contextify" the sandbox, making it suitable for use as a global for vm scripts, and then return it. It no longer creates a separate context object.
  • Updated most vm and vm.Script methods to accept an options object, allowing you to configure a timeout for the script, the error display behavior, and sometimes the filename (for stack traces).
  • Updated the supplied sandbox object to be used directly as the global, remove error-prone copying of properties back and forth between the supplied sandbox object and the global that appears inside the scripts run by the vm module.

For more information, see the vm documentation linked above.

zlib

https://iojs.org/api/zlib.html

  • Added support for zlib.flush to specify a particular flush method (defaulting to Z_FULL_FLUSH).
  • Added support for zlib.params to dynamically update the compression level and strategy when deflating.
  • Added synchronous versions of the zlib methods.

C++ API Changes

https://iojs.org/api/addons.html

In general it is recommended that you use NAN as a compatibility layer for your addons. This will also help with future changes in the V8 and Node/io.js C++ API. Most of the following changes are already handled by NAN-specific wrappers.

V8 highlights

  • Exposed method signature has changed from Handle<Value> Method(const Arguments& args) to void Method(const v8::FunctionCallbackInfo<Value>& args) with the newly introduced FunctionCallbackInfo also taking the return value via args.GetReturnValue().Set(value) instead of scope.Close(value), Arguments has been removed.
  • Exposed setter signature has changed from void Setter(Local<String> property, Local<Value> value, const v8::AccessorInfo& args) void Setter(Local<String> property, Local<Value> value, const v8::PropertyCallbackInfo<void>& args).
  • Exposed getter signature has changed from void Getter(Local<String> property, Local<Value> value, const v8::AccessorInfo& args) void Getter(Local<String> property, Local<Value> value, const v8::PropertyCallbackInfo<Value>& args).
  • Exposed property setter signature has changed from Handle<Value> Setter(Local<String> property, Local<Value> value, const v8::AccessorInfo& args) void Setter(Local<String> property, Local<Value> value, const v8::PropertyCallbackInfo<Value>& args).
  • Exposed property getter signature has changed from Handle<Value> Getter(Local<String> property, Local<Value> value, const v8::AccessorInfo& args) void Getter(Local<String> property, Local<Value> value, const v8::PropertyCallbackInfo<Value>& args).
  • Similar changes have been made to property enumerators, property deleters, property query, index getter, index setter, index enumerator, index deleter, index query.
  • V8 objects instantiated in C++ now require an Isolate* argument as the first argument. In most cases it is OK to simply pass v8::Isolate::GetCurrent(), e.g. Date::New(Isolate::GetCurrent(), time), or String::NewFromUtf8(Isolate::GetCurrent(), "foobar").
  • HandleScope scope now requires an Isolate* argument, i.e. HandleScope scope(isolate), in most cases v8::Isolate::GetCurrent() is OK.
  • Similar changes have been made to Locker and Unlocker.
  • V8 objects that need to "escape" a scope should be enclosed in a EscapableHandleScope rather than a HandleScope and should be returned with scope.Escape(value).
  • Exceptions are now thrown from isolates with isolate->ThrowException(ExceptionObject).
  • Context::GetCurrent() must now be done on an isolate, e.g. Isolate::GetCurrent()->GetCurrentContext().
  • String::NewSymbol() has been removed, use plain strings instead.
  • String::New() has been removed, use String::NewFromUtf8() instead.
  • Persistent objects no longer inherit from Handle and cannot be instantiated with another object. Instead, the Persistent should simply be declared, e.g. Persistent<Type> handle and then have a Local assigned to it with handle.Reset(isolate, value). To get a Local from a Persistent you must instantiate it as the argument, i.e. Local::New(Isolate*, Persistent).

Node / io.js

  • Updated node::Buffer::New() to return a Handle directly so you no longer need to fetch the handle_ property.
  • Updated node::MakeCallback() to require an Isolate* as the first argument. Generally Isolate::GetCurrent() will be OK for this.
