Updated installation instructions to reflect dependency of latest releases on the unstable node 0.5.x series.

On 0.5.7 I can't even get npm to install.

In node/issues there are numerous warnings about the instability of 0.5.x with suggestions to just use the stable releases.

thkanks, I am actually waiting for stable 0.5, so didn't know somebody is using the unstable qunit :) There are a lot of undocumented changes as well es no testcoverage yet.

probably I have to create a patch for .fork method ... then it is 0.4 compatible. Hadn't time for that yet.

sure ... node 0.5 has a new .fork method for communication between child processes

http://nodejs.org/docs/v0.5.7/api/child_processes.html#child_process.fork

it is used here:

https://github.com/kof/node-qunit/blob/refactoring/lib/testrunner.js#L24

I want to create a patch for node 0.4 to make this module compatible. This should be an extra file, which implements .fork method if it is not implemented by node ... we can use feature detection here instead of sniffing the node version. It can be even an own module, if you like to write it I think some other people would use it too.
