Node v0.9.12 (Unstable)

The Node.js Project

As of this release, Node v0.9 is finally performing faster than v0.8 on HTTP, file system, and TLS benchmarks.

Unless there are serious problems found, v0.10.0 will be released on Monday, 2013.03.11, along with more details about the benchmark results and the plans for what comes next.

Please consider this a v0.10 Release Candidate. Use it in your programs. It is as stable as 0.9 is going to get.
