Node v5.10.0 (Current)

Evan Lucas

This release includes a security update for npm. For more details you can read this post on our blog written by Forrest L Norvell from npm.

Notable changes

  • buffer:
    • make byteLength work with ArrayBuffer & DataView (Jackson Tian) #5255
    • backport --zero-fill-buffers command line option (James M Snell) #5744
    • backport new buffer constructor APIs (James M Snell) #5763
    • add swap16() and swap32() methods (James M Snell) #5724
  • fs: add the fs.mkdtemp() function. (Florian MARGAINE) #5333
  • net: emit host in lookup event (HUANG Wei) #5598
  • node: --no-browser-globals configure flag (Fedor Indutny) #5853
  • npm: Upgrade to v3.8.3. Fixes a security flaw in the use of authentication tokens in HTTP requests that would allow an attacker to set up a server that could collect tokens from users of the command-line interface. Authentication tokens have previously been sent with every request made by the CLI for logged-in users, regardless of the destination of the request. This update fixes this by only including those tokens for requests made against the registry or registries used for the current install. (Forrest L Norvell) npm/node#6
