    • backport --zero-fill-buffers command line option (James M Snell) #5744

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) npm/node#6

2016-03-08, Version 5.8.0 (Stable), @Fishrock123

Notable changes

  • child_process: send() now accepts an options parameter (cjihrig) #5283.
    • Currently the only option is keepOpen, which keeps the underlying socket open after the message is sent.
  • constants: ENGINE_METHOD_RSA is now correctly exposed (Sam Roberts) #5463.
  • Fixed two regressions which originated in v5.7.0:
    • http: Errors inside of http client callbacks now propagate correctly (Trevor Norris) #5591.
    • path: Fixed normalization of absolute paths (Evan Lucas) #5589.
  • repl: start() no longer requires an options parameter (cjihrig) #5388.

2016-03-02, Version 5.7.1 (Stable), @Fishrock123

Notable changes

  • governance: The Core Technical Committee (CTC) added four new members to help guide Node.js core development: Evan Lucas, Rich Trott, Ali Ijaz Sheikh and Сковорода Никита Андреевич (Nikita Skovoroda).
  • 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.
  • Fixed several regressions that appeared in v5.7.0:
    • path.relative():
      • Output is no longer unnecessarily verbose (Brian White) #5389.
      • Resolving UNC paths on Windows now works correctly (Owen Smith) #5456.
      • Resolving paths with prefixes now works correctly from the root directory (Owen Smith) #5490.
    • url: Fixed an off-by-one error with parse() (Brian White) #5394.
    • dgram: Now correctly handles a default address case when offset and length are specified (Matteo Collina) #5407.

2016-02-23, Version 5.7.0 (Stable), @rvagg

Notable changes

  • buffer:
    • You can now supply an encoding argument when filling a Buffer Buffer#fill(string[, start[, end]][, encoding]), supplying an existing Buffer will also work with Buffer#fill(buffer[, start[, end]]). See the API documentation for details on how this works. (Trevor Norris) #4935
    • Buffer#indexOf() no longer requires a byteOffset argument if you also wish to specify an encoding: Buffer#indexOf(val[, byteOffset][, encoding]). (Trevor Norris) #4803
  • child_process: spawn() and spawnSync() now support a 'shell' option to allow for optional execution of the given command inside a shell. If set to true, cmd.exe will be used on Windows and /bin/sh elsewhere. A path to a custom shell can also be passed to override these defaults. On Windows, this option allows .bat. and .cmd files to be executed with spawn() and spawnSync(). (Colin Ihrig) #4598
  • http_parser: Update to http-parser 2.6.2 to fix an unintentionally strict limitation of allowable header characters (James M Snell) #5237
  • dgram: socket.send() now supports accepts an array of Buffers or Strings as the first argument. See the API docs for details on how this works. (Matteo Collina) #4374
  • http: Fix a bug where handling headers will mistakenly trigger an 'upgrade' event where the server is just advertising its protocols. This bug can prevent HTTP clients from communicating with HTTP/2 enabled servers. (Fedor Indutny) #4337
  • net: Added a listening Boolean property to net and http servers to indicate whether the server is listening for connections. (José Moreira) #4743
  • node: The C++ node::MakeCallback() API is now reentrant and calling it from inside another MakeCallback() call no longer causes the nextTick queue or Promises microtask queue to be processed out of order. (Trevor Norris) #4507
  • tls: Add a new tlsSocket.getProtocol() method to get the negotiated TLS protocol version of the current connection. (Brian White) #4995
  • vm: Introduce new 'produceCachedData' and 'cachedData' options to new vm.Script() to interact with V8's code cache. When a new vm.Script object is created with the 'produceCachedData' set to true a Buffer with V8's code cache data will be produced and stored in cachedData property of the returned object. This data in turn may be supplied back to another vm.Script() object with a 'cachedData' option if the supplied source is the same. Successfully executing a script from cached data can speed up instantiation time. See the API docs for details. (Fedor Indutny) #4777
  • performance: Improvements in:
    • process.nextTick() (Ruben Bridgewater) #5092
    • path module (Brian White) #5123
    • querystring module (Brian White) #5012
    • streams module when processing small chunks (Matteo Collina) #4354

2016-02-09, Version 5.6.0 (Stable), @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.

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 2.6.0 to 2.6.1
  • npm: upgrade npm from 3.3.12 to 3.6.0 (Rebecca Turner) #4958
  • 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.

2015-12-09, Version 5.2.0 (Stable), @rvagg

Notable changes

  • build:
    • Add support for Intel's VTune JIT profiling when compiled with --enable-vtune-profiling. For more information about VTune, see https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/544211. (Chunyang Dai) #3785.
    • Properly enable V8 snapshots by default. Due to a configuration error, snapshots have been kept off by default when the intention is for the feature to be enabled. (Fedor Indutny) #3962.
  • crypto:
    • Simplify use of ECDH (Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman) objects (created via crypto.createECDH(curve_name)) with private keys that are not dynamically generated via generateKeys(). The public key is now computed when explicitly setting a private key. Added validity checks to reduce the possibility of computing weak or invalid shared secrets. Also, deprecated the setPublicKey() method for ECDH objects as its usage is unnecessary and can lead to inconsistent state. (Michael Ruddy) #3511.
    • Update root certificates from the current list stored maintained by Mozilla NSS. (Ben Noordhuis) #3951.
    • Multiple CA certificates can now be passed with the ca option to TLS methods as an array of strings or in a single new-line separated string. (Ben Noordhuis) #4099
  • tools: Include a tick processor in core, exposed via the --prof-process command-line argument which can be used to process V8 profiling output files generated when using the --prof command-line argument. (Matt Loring) #4021.

Known issues

  • 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.
  • Unicode characters in filesystem paths are not handled consistently across platforms or Node.js APIs. See #2088, #3401 and #3519.

2015-12-04, Version 5.1.1 (Stable), @rvagg

Notable changes

  • http: Fix CVE-2015-8027, a bug whereby an HTTP socket may no longer have a parser associated with it but a pipelined request attempts to trigger a pause or resume on the non-existent parser, a potential denial-of-service vulnerability. (Fedor Indutny)
  • openssl: Upgrade to 1.0.2e, containing fixes for:
    • CVE-2015-3193 "BN_mod_exp may produce incorrect results on x86_64", an attack may be possible against a Node.js TLS server using DHE key exchange. Details are available at http://openssl.org/news/secadv/20151203.txt.
    • CVE-2015-3194 "Certificate verify crash with missing PSS parameter", a potential denial-of-service vector for Node.js TLS servers using client certificate authentication; TLS clients are also impacted. Details are available at http://openssl.org/news/secadv/20151203.txt. (Shigeki Ohtsu) #4134
  • v8: Backport fix for CVE-2015-6764, a bug in JSON.stringify() that can result in out-of-bounds reads for arrays. (Ben Noordhuis)

Known issues

2015-10-29, Version 5.0.0 (Stable), @rvagg

Notable Changes

  • buffer: (Breaking) Removed both 'raw' and 'raws' encoding types from Buffer, these have been deprecated for a long time (Sakthipriyan Vairamani) #2859.
  • console: (Breaking) Values reported by console.time() now have 3 decimals of accuracy added (Michaël Zasso) #3166.
  • fs:
    • fs.readFile*(), fs.writeFile*(), and fs.appendFile*() now also accept a file descriptor as their first argument (Johannes Wüller) #3163.
    • (Breaking) In fs.readFile(), if an encoding is specified and the internal toString() fails the error is no longer thrown but is passed to the callback (Evan Lucas) #3485.
    • (Breaking) In fs.read() (using the fs.read(fd, length, position, encoding, callback) form), if the internal toString() fails the error is no longer thrown but is passed to the callback (Evan Lucas) #3503.
  • http:
    • Fixed a bug where pipelined http requests would stall (Fedor Indutny) #3342.
    • (Breaking) When parsing HTTP, don't add duplicates of the following headers: Retry-After, ETag, Last-Modified, Server, Age, Expires. This is in addition to the following headers which already block duplicates: Content-Type, Content-Length, User-Agent, Referer, Host, Authorization, Proxy-Authorization, If-Modified-Since, If-Unmodified-Since, From, Location, Max-Forwards (James M Snell) #3090.
    • (Breaking) The callback argument to OutgoingMessage#setTimeout() must be a function or a TypeError is thrown (James M Snell) #3090.
    • (Breaking) HTTP methods and header names must now conform to the RFC 2616 "token" rule, a list of allowed characters that excludes control characters and a number of separator characters. Specifically, methods and header names must now match /^[a-zA-Z0-9_!#$%&'*+.^`|~-]+$/ or a TypeError will be thrown (James M Snell) #2526.
  • node:
    • (Breaking) Deprecated the _linklist module (Rich Trott) #3078.
    • (Breaking) Removed require.paths and require.registerExtension(), both had been previously set to throw Error when accessed (Sakthipriyan Vairamani) #2922.
  • npm: Upgraded to version 3.3.6 from 2.14.7, see https://github.com/npm/npm/releases/tag/v3.3.6 for more details. This is a major version bump for npm and it has seen a significant amount of change. Please see the original npm v3.0.0 release notes for a list of major changes (Rebecca Turner) #3310.
  • src: (Breaking) Bumped NODE_MODULE_VERSION to 47 from 46, this is necessary due to the V8 upgrade. Native add-ons will need to be recompiled (Rod Vagg) #3400.
  • timers: Attempt to reuse the timer handle for setTimeout().unref(). This fixes a long-standing known issue where unrefed timers would perviously hold beforeExit open (Fedor Indutny) #3407.
  • tls:
    • Added ALPN Support (Shigeki Ohtsu) #2564.
    • TLS options can now be passed in an object to createSecurePair() (Коренберг Марк) #2441.
    • (Breaking) The default minimum DH key size for tls.connect() is now 1024 bits and a warning is shown when DH key size is less than 2048 bits. This a security consideration to prevent "logjam" attacks. A new minDHSize TLS option can be used to override the default. (Shigeki Ohtsu) #1831.
  • util:
    • (Breaking) util.p() was deprecated for years, and has now been removed (Wyatt Preul) #3432.
    • (Breaking) util.inherits() can now work with ES6 classes. This is considered a breaking change because of potential subtle side-effects caused by a change from directly reassigning the prototype of the constructor using ctor.prototype = Object.create(superCtor.prototype, { constructor: { ... } }) to using Object.setPrototypeOf(ctor.prototype, superCtor.prototype) (Michaël Zasso) #3455.
  • v8: (Breaking) Upgraded to 4.6.85.25 from 4.5.103.35 (Ali Ijaz Sheikh) #3351.
  • zlib: Decompression now throws on truncated input (e.g. unexpected end of file) (Yuval Brik) #2595.

Known issues

  • 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.
  • Unicode characters in filesystem paths are not handled consistently across platforms or Node.js APIs. See #2088, #3401 and #3519.
