2016-03-02, Version 5.7.1 (Stable)

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 https://www.openssl.org/news/vulnerabilities.html#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
https://www.openssl.org/news/vulnerabilities.html#2016-0797
  - Fix a defect that makes the CacheBleed Attack
(https://ssrg.nicta.com.au/projects/TS/cachebleed/) 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
https://www.openssl.org/news/vulnerabilities.html#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
