2017-01-31, Version 4.7.3 'Argon' (LTS), @MylesBorins

This is a security release of the 'Argon' release line to upgrade OpenSSL to version 1.0.2k

Although the OpenSSL team have determined a maximum severity rating of "moderate", the Node.js crypto team (Ben Noordhuis, Shigeki Ohtsu and Fedor Indutny) have determined the impact to Node users is "low". Details on this determination can be found on the Nodejs.org website.

Notable Changes

  • deps: upgrade openssl sources to 1.0.2k (Shigeki Ohtsu) #11021

2017-01-05, Version 4.7.2 'Argon' (LTS), @MylesBorins

This is a special release that contains 0 commits. While promoting additional platforms for v4.7.1 after the release, the tarballs on the release server were overwritten and now have different shasums. In order to remove any ambiguity around the release we have opted to do a semver patch release with no changes.

2016-03-31, Version 4.4.2 'Argon' (LTS), @thealphanerd

Notable Changes

  • https:
    • Under certain conditions ssl sockets may have been causing a memory leak when keepalive is enabled. This is no longer the case. (Alexander Penev) #5713
  • lib:
    • The way that we were internally passing arguments was causing a potential leak. By copying the arguments into an array we can avoid this. (Nathan Woltman) #4361
  • npm:
    • Upgrade to v2.15.1. Fixes a security flaw in the use of authentication tokens in HTTP requests that would allow an attacker to set up a server that could collect tokens from users of the command-line interface. Authentication tokens have previously been sent with every request made by the CLI for logged-in users, regardless of the destination of the request. This update fixes this by only including those tokens for requests made against the registry or registries used for the current install. (Forrest L Norvell)
  • repl:
    • Previously if you were using the repl in strict mode the column number would be wrong in a stack trace. This is no longer an issue. (Prince J Wesley) #5416

2016-03-08, Version 4.4.0 'Argon' (LTS), @thealphanerd

In December we announced that we would be doing a minor release in order to get a number of voted on SEMVER-MINOR changes into LTS. Our ability to release this was delayed due to the unforeseen security release v4.3. We are quickly bumping to v4.4 in order to bring you the features that we had committed to releasing.

This release also includes over 70 fixes to our docs and over 50 fixes to tests.

Notable changes

The SEMVER-MINOR changes include:

  • deps:
    • An update to v8 that introduces a new flag --perf_basic_prof_only_functions (Ali Ijaz Sheikh) #3609
  • http:
    • A new feature in http(s) agent that catches errors on keep alived connections (José F. Romaniello) #4482
  • src:
    • Better support for Big-Endian systems (Bryon Leung) #3410
  • tls:
    • A new feature that allows you to pass common SSL options to tls.createSecurePair (Коренберг Марк) #2441
  • tools:
    • a new flag --prof-process which will execute the tick processor on the provided isolate files (Matt Loring) #4021

Notable semver patch changes include:

  • buld:
    • Support python path that includes spaces. This should be of particular interest to our Windows users who may have python living in c:/Program Files (Felix Becker) #4841
  • https:
    • A potential fix for #3692 HTTP/HTTPS client requests throwing EPROTO (Fedor Indutny) #4982

  • npm:
    • upgrade to npm 2.14.20 (Kat Marchán) #5510
  • process:
    • Add support for symbols in event emitters. Symbols didn't exist when it was written ¯_(ツ)_/¯ (cjihrig) #4798
  • querystring:
    • querystring.parse() is now 13-22% faster! (Brian White) #4675
  • streams:
    • performance improvements for moving small buffers that shows a 5% throughput gain. IoT projects have been seen to be as much as 10% faster with this change! (Matteo Collina) #4354
  • tools:
    • eslint has been updated to version 2.1.0 (Rich Trott) #5214

2016-03-02, Version 4.3.2 'Argon' (LTS), @thealphanerd

This is a security release with only a single commit, an update to openssl due to a recent security advisory. You can read more about the security advisory on the Node.js website

Notable changes

  • openssl: Upgrade from 1.0.2f to 1.0.2g (Ben Noordhuis) #5507
    • Fix a double-free defect in parsing malformed DSA keys that may potentially be used for DoS or memory corruption attacks. It is likely to be very difficult to use this defect for a practical attack and is therefore considered low severity for Node.js users. More info is available at CVE-2016-0705.
    • Fix a defect that can cause memory corruption in certain very rare cases relating to the internal BN_hex2bn() and BN_dec2bn() functions. It is believed that Node.js is not invoking the code paths that use these functions so practical attacks via Node.js using this defect are unlikely to be possible. More info is available at CVE-2016-0797.
    • Fix a defect that makes the CacheBleed Attack possible. This defect enables attackers to execute side-channel attacks leading to the potential recovery of entire RSA private keys. It only affects the Intel Sandy Bridge (and possibly older) microarchitecture when using hyper-threading. Newer microarchitectures, including Haswell, are unaffected. More info is available at CVE-2016-0702.

Commits

2016-02-09, Version 4.3.0 'Argon' (LTS), @jasnell

This is an important security release. All Node.js users should consult the security release summary at nodejs.org for details on patched vulnerabilities.

Note that this release includes a non-backward compatible change to address a security issue. This change increases the version of the LTS v4.x line to v4.3.0. There will be no further updates to v4.2.x.

Notable changes

  • http: fix defects in HTTP header parsing for requests and responses that can allow request smuggling (CVE-2016-2086) or response splitting (CVE-2016-2216). HTTP header parsing now aligns more closely with the HTTP spec including restricting the acceptable characters.
  • http-parser: upgrade from 2.5.0 to 2.5.1
  • openssl: upgrade from 1.0.2e to 1.0.2f. To mitigate against the Logjam attack, TLS clients now reject Diffie-Hellman handshakes with parameters shorter than 1024-bits, up from the previous limit of 768-bits.
  • src:
    • introduce new --security-revert={cvenum} command line flag for selective reversion of specific CVE fixes
    • allow the fix for CVE-2016-2216 to be selectively reverted using --security-revert=CVE-2016-2216

Commits

  • [d94f864abd] - deps: add -no_rand_screen to openssl s_client (Shigeki Ohtsu) #1836
  • [136295e202] - deps: upgrade openssl sources to 1.0.2f (Myles Borins) #4961
  • [0eae95eae3] - (SEMVER-MINOR) deps: update http-parser to version 2.5.1 (James M Snell)
  • [cf2b714b02] - (SEMVER-MINOR) http: strictly forbid invalid characters from headers (James M Snell)
  • [49ae2e0334] - src: avoid compiler warning in node_revert.cc (James M Snell)
  • [da3750f981] - (SEMVER-MAJOR) src: add --security-revert command line flag (James M Snell)

2015-09-22, Version 4.1.1 (Stable), @rvagg

Notable changes

  • buffer: Fixed a bug introduced in v4.1.0 where allocating a new zero-length buffer can result in the next allocation of a TypedArray in JavaScript not being zero-filled. In certain circumstances this could result in data leakage via reuse of memory space in TypedArrays, breaking the normally safe assumption that TypedArrays should be always zero-filled. (Trevor Norris) #2931.
  • http: Guard against response-splitting of HTTP trailing headers added via response.addTrailers() by removing new-line ([\r\n]) characters from values. Note that standard header values are already stripped of new-line characters. The expected security impact is low because trailing headers are rarely used. (Ben Noordhuis) #2945.
  • npm: Upgrade to npm 2.14.4 from 2.14.3, see release notes for full details (Kat Marchán) #2958
    • Upgrades graceful-fs on multiple dependencies to no longer rely on monkey-patching fs
    • Fix npm link for pre-release / RC builds of Node
  • v8: Update post-mortem metadata to allow post-mortem debugging tools to find and inspect:
    • JavaScript objects that use dictionary properties (Julien Gilli) #2959
    • ScopeInfo and thus closures (Julien Gilli) #2974

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
  • 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.

2015-09-17, Version 4.1.0 (Stable), @Fishrock123

Notable changes

  • buffer:
    • Buffers are now created in JavaScript, rather than C++. This increases the speed of buffer creation (Trevor Norris) #2866.
    • Buffer#slice() now uses Uint8Array#subarray() internally, increasing slice() performance (Karl Skomski) #2777.
  • fs:
    • fs.utimes() now properly converts numeric strings, NaN, and Infinity (Yazhong Liu) #2387.
    • fs.WriteStream now implements _writev, allowing for super-fast bulk writes (Ron Korving) #2167.
  • http: Fixed an issue with certain write() sizes causing errors when using http.request() (Fedor Indutny) #2824.
  • npm: Upgrade to version 2.14.3, see https://github.com/npm/npm/releases/tag/v2.14.3 for more details (Kat Marchán) #2822.
  • src: V8 cpu profiling no longer erroneously shows idle time (Oleksandr Chekhovskyi) #2324.
  • timers: #ref() and #unref() now return the timer they belong to (Sam Roberts) #2905.
  • v8: Lateral upgrade to 4.5.103.33 from 4.5.103.30, contains minor fixes (Ali Ijaz Sheikh) #2870.
    • This fixes a previously known bug where some computed object shorthand properties did not work correctly (#2507).
