This patch documents the deprecation of util.is* functions.

cc @silverwind

Previous Effort: #1301

Official deprecation policy states that, we need to start with documenting the deprecation first. Hence the attempt.

inherits is deprecated?
The entire planet uses it. What's the new preferred way (apart from ES6 classes)?

@ronkorving, this is util.isBuffer(), not util.inherits().

While this is fine in general, it's a bit unfortunate that we define a "stability index" (https://iojs.org/api/documentation.html#documentation_stability_index) but do not appear to be using it consistently. Example: https://iojs.org/api/fs.html#fs_fs_exists_path_callback and https://iojs.org/api/util.html#util_util_debug_string

Given that util.markdown uses Stability: 0 elsewhere, can you update this to be consistent?

io.js TC agreed to deprecation here: https://github.com/nodejs/node/blob/master/doc/tsc-meetings/io.js/2015-04-08.md#1301-utilis-deprecations

I'm +1 on documenting this so lgtm

I don't have a replacement for 100% of them but I certainly can provide them if you like. I've got modules for most all the hard ones, and the others are either built into the language or oneliners.

I'm -1 on pointing to userland modules if that's what we're talking about, it's effectively blessing them and prematurely squashing competition, I don't believe we have a precedent for that in our docs yet and we shouldn't start one

That's totally fine to not point to userland modules - but with ES6, the methods will quickly become broken, so they'll either need removal or repair.

Actually, hold that thought.

Can we just remove the documentation altogether and only mention them under a deprecated heading?

Can we just remove the documentation altogether and only mention them under a deprecated heading?

There may be existing links to those docs and users who expect to find them in that particular place, I'd go with just changing the stability label for now and escalating in v5, v6 and beyond

Just be aware that the instant you bring in a v8 that supports Symbol.toStringTag, they'll all be broken - I strongly recommend making that the one where you remove the methods.

No - there's still reliable ways. They just involve try/catch. See https://github.com/ljharb/is-string/blob/master/index.js#L3-L11 for an example.

This list of changes is relative to the last io.js v3.x branch
release, v3.3.0. Please see the list of notable changes in the v3.x,
v2.x and v1.x releases for a more complete list of changes from
0.12.x. Note, that some changes in the v3.x series as well as major
breaking changes in this release constitute changes required for full
convergence of the Node.js and io.js projects.

* child_process: ChildProcess.prototype.send() and process.send()
  operate asynchronously across all platforms so an optional callback
  parameter has been introduced that will be invoked once the message
  has been sent, i.e. .send(message[, sendHandle][, callback])
  (Ben Noordhuis) #2620.
* node: Rename "io.js" code to "Node.js" (cjihrig) #2367.
* node-gyp: This release bundles an updated version of node-gyp that
  works with all versions of Node.js and io.js including nightly and
  release candidate builds. From io.js v3 and Node.js v4 onward, it
  will only download a headers tarball when building addons rather
  than the entire source. (Rod Vagg) #2700.
* npm: Upgrade to version 2.14.2 from 2.13.3, includes a security
  update, see https://github.com/npm/npm/releases/tag/v2.14.2 for more
  details, (Kat Marchán) #2696.

  implementation, plus minor fixes (Jeremiah Senkpiel) #2540,
  (Julien Gilli) nodejs/node-v0.x-archive#8751 nodejs/node-v0.x-archive#8905
* util: The util.is*() functions have been deprecated, beginning with
  deprecation warnings in the documentation for this release, users
  are encouraged to seek more robust alternatives in the npm registry,
  (Sakthipriyan Vairamani) #2447.
* v8: Upgrade to version 4.5.103.30 from 4.4.63.30 (Ali Ijaz Sheikh) #2632.
  - Implement new TypedArray prototype methods: copyWithin(), every(),
    fill(), filter(), find(), findIndex(), forEach(), indexOf(),

### Known issues

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

* Some uses of computed object shorthand properties are not handled correctly by the current version of V8. e.g. `[{ [prop]: val }]` evaluates to `[{}]`. [#2507](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/2507)
* Some problems with unreferenced timers running during `beforeExit` are still to be resolved. See [#1264](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/1264).
* Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal. [#690](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/690)
* Calling `dns.setServers()` while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion. [#894](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/894)
* `url.resolve` may transfer the auth portion of the url when resolving between two full hosts, see [#1435](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/1435).

## 2015-09-02, Version 3.3.0, @rvagg

### Notable changes

* **build**: Add a `--link-module` option to `configure` that can be used to bundle additional JavaScript modules into a built binary (Bradley Meck) [#2497](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2497)
* **docs**: Merge outstanding doc updates from joyent/node (James M Snell) [#2378](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2378)
* **http_parser**: Significant performance improvement by having `http.Server` consume all initial data from its `net.Socket` and parsing directly without having to enter JavaScript. Any `'data'` listeners on the `net.Socket` will result in the data being "unconsumed" into JavaScript, thereby undoing any performance gains. (Fedor Indutny) [#2355](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2355)
* **libuv**: Upgrade to 1.7.3 (from 1.6.1), see [ChangeLog](https://github.com/libuv/libuv/blob/v1.x/ChangeLog) for details (Saúl Ibarra Corretgé) [#2310](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2310)
* **V8**: Upgrade to 4.4.63.30 (from 4.4.63.26) (Michaël Zasso) [#2482](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2482)

### Known issues

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

* Some uses of computed object shorthand properties are not handled correctly by the current version of V8. e.g. `[{ [prop]: val }]` evaluates to `[{}]`. [#2507](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/2507)
* Some problems with unreferenced timers running during `beforeExit` are still to be resolved. See [#1264](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/1264).
* Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal. [#690](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/690)
* `process.send()` is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see [#760](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/760).
* Calling `dns.setServers()` while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion. [#894](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/894)
* `url.resolve` may transfer the auth portion of the url when resolving between two full hosts, see [#1435](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/1435).

## 2015-08-25, Version 3.2.0, @rvagg

### Notable changes

* **events**: Added `EventEmitter#listenerCount(event)` as a replacement for `EventEmitter.listenerCount(emitter, event)`, which has now been marked as deprecated in the docs. (Sakthipriyan Vairamani) [#2349](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2349)
* **module**: Fixed an error with preloaded modules when the current working directory doesn't exist. (Bradley Meck) [#2353](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2353)
* **node**: Startup time is now about 5% faster when not passing V8 flags. (Evan Lucas) [#2483](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2483)
* **repl**: Tab-completion now works better with arrays. (James M Snell) [#2409](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2409)
* **string_bytes**: Fixed an unaligned write in the handling of UCS2 encoding. (Fedor Indutny) [#2480](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2480)
* **tls**: Added a new `--tls-cipher-list` flag that can be used to override the built-in default cipher list. (James M Snell) [#2412](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2412) _Note: it is suggested you use the built-in cipher list as it has been carefully selected to reflect current security best practices and risk mitigation._

### Known issues

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

* Some uses of computed object shorthand properties are not handled correctly by the current version of V8. e.g. `[{ [prop]: val }]` evaluates to `[{}]`. [#2507](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/2507)
* Some problems with unreferenced timers running during `beforeExit` are still to be resolved. See [#1264](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/1264).
* Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal. [#690](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/690)
* `process.send()` is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see [#760](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/760).
* Calling `dns.setServers()` while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion. [#894](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/894)
* `url.resolve` may transfer the auth portion of the url when resolving between two full hosts, see [#1435](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/1435).

## 2015-08-18, Version 3.1.0, @Fishrock123

### Notable changes

* **buffer**: Fixed a couple large memory leaks (Ben Noordhuis) [#2352](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2352).
* **crypto**:
  - Fixed a couple of minor memory leaks (Karl Skomski) [#2375](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2375).
  - Signing now checks for OpenSSL errors (P.S.V.R) [#2342](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2342). **Note that this may expose previously hidden errors in user code.**
* **intl**: Intl support using small-icu is now enabled by default in builds (Steven R. Loomis) [#2264](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2264).
  - [`String#normalize()`](https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/String/normalize) can now be used for unicode normalization.
  - The [`Intl`](https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/Intl) object and various `String` and `Number` methods are present, but only support the English locale.
  - For support of all locales, node must be built with [full-icu](https://github.com/nodejs/node#build-with-full-icu-support-all-locales-supported-by-icu).
* **tls**: Fixed tls throughput being much lower after an incorrect merge (Fedor Indutny) [#2381](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2381).
* **tools**: The v8 tick processor now comes bundled with node (Matt Loring) [#2090](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2090).
  - This can be used by producing performance profiling output by running node with `--perf`, then running your appropriate platform's script on the output as found in [tools/v8-prof](https://github.com/nodejs/node/tree/master/tools/v8-prof).
* **util**: `util.inspect(obj)` now prints the constructor name of the object if there is one (Christopher Monsanto) [#1935](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/pull/1935).

### Known issues

See https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/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](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/1264).
* Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal. [#690](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/690)
* `process.send()` is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see [#760](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/760).
* Calling `dns.setServers()` while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion. [#894](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/894)
* `url.resolve` may transfer the auth portion of the url when resolving between two full hosts, see [#1435](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/1435).

## 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](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/1825).
  - `Buffer` can now take `ArrayBuffer`s as a constructor argument (Trevor Norris) [#2002](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/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](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/1937).
* **build**: PPC support has been added to core to allow compiling on pLinux BE and LE (AIX support coming soon) (Michael Dawson) [#2124](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/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](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/1796)
* **freelist**: Deprecate the undocumented `freelist` core module (Sakthipriyan Vairamani) [#2176](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2176).
* **http**:
  - Status codes now all use the official [IANA names](http://www.iana.org/assignments/http-status-codes) as per [RFC7231](https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7231), e.g. `http.STATUS_CODES[414]` now returns `'URI Too Long'` rather than `'Request-URI Too Large'` (jomo) [#1470](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/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](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/1617).
* **node**:
  - `NODE_MODULE_VERSION` has been bumped to `45` to reflect the break in ABI (Rod Vagg) [#2096](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/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](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/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](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/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](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/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](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2022).
* **tls**: Add `server.getTicketKeys()` and `server.setTicketKeys()` methods for [TLS session key](https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc5077.txt) rotation (Fedor Indutny) [#2227](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2227).
* **v8**: Upgraded to 4.4.63.26
  - ES6: Enabled [computed property names](https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Operators/Object_initializer#Computed_property_names)
  - ES6: `Array` can now be subclassed in strict mode
  - ES6: Implement [rest parameters](https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Functions/rest_parameters) in staging, use the `--harmony-rest-parameters` command line flag
  - ES6: Implement the [spread operator](https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Operators/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

### 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](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/1264).
* Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal. [#690](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/690)
* `process.send()` is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see [#760](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/760).
* Calling `dns.setServers()` while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion. [#894](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/894)
* `url.resolve` may transfer the auth portion of the url when resolving between two full hosts, see [#1435](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/1435).

I'm -1 on pointing to userland modules if that's what we're talking about, it's effectively blessing them and prematurely squashing competition, I don't believe we have a precedent for that in our docs yet and we shouldn't start one

Totally agree, however the issue of leaving users stranded still remains, it would be good to make the process of finding suitable userland modules easier - for instance what do people search for? Perhaps we can just supply a link to the npm search page, that is filtered by a particular search or keyword that alternatives have in common or should provide.

Hi, as end user,

this documentation page is really disturbing.

https://nodejs.org/api/util.html#util_util_isfunction_object

What seems to be a core feature for many other language is deprecated.

And there s no documented alternative at all.

More over, the module has a stability=2, but the members are stability=0. What does it mean ?

And when i get to read the description of the module. Really, i wonder even more.

How about documenting a workable-plain-nodejs fashion to go with for any new/not-so-new user of the language ?

for any other user going through the same wonders

Node is not a language. It is a platform built on the JavaScript language, you can still type-check by doing what these functions were doing or using the core-util-is module on NPM.

And there s no documented alternative at all.

Correct, not yet. You can use either the above module, or replicate what the functions were doing, however, in a future version, those will not be 100% reliable.

More over, the module has a stability=2, but the members are stability=0. What does it mean ?

Everything else is stability=2 except for those.

hi, thanks for considerations!

Understood when you say nodes is not a language.

I d also like to add that i believe for many users, like me, working with node is a lesson which everyday teaches you something. For the good, no matter how hard it is.

Feel like abandoned when nodes team discard of this amazing value added which is to push/guide us doing it the right way.. Just leave us to some research on npm, so, ect.

Did not mean to be hard, sorry if i was, just tried to tell you know my feeling.

that s all.

No problem, let us know if you have more questions. :) (https://github.com/nodejs/help is a good place for those too!)
