Connect can't be installed anymore w/ current version of node.

Here is the output on npm install connect.

npm install connect

0.5.x is not supported


Will updates to current and newer versions of node be supported at some point?

Otherwise I have to deprecate use of connect and start converting to something else.

0.5.x is not really the "current" releases of node, these are unstable releases... 0.6.0 will be the next stable

@puppetMaster3 what TJ was trying to say is that express 3.x should be working stably with 0.6.x within some delta after 0.6 is released.

@visionmedia what's a sensible delta?
