Node v5.2.0 (Current)

by Rod Vagg,

Notable changes

  • build:
    • Add support for Intel's VTune JIT profiling when compiled with --enable-vtune-profiling. For more information about VTune, see https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/544211. (Chunyang Dai) #3785.
    • Properly enable V8 snapshots by default. Due to a configuration error, snapshots have been kept off by default when the intention is for the feature to be enabled. (Fedor Indutny) #3962.
  • crypto:
    • Simplify use of ECDH (Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman) objects (created via crypto.createECDH(curve_name)) with private keys that are not dynamically generated via generateKeys(). The public key is now computed when explicitly setting a private key. Added validity checks to reduce the possibility of computing weak or invalid shared secrets. Also, deprecated the setPublicKey() method for ECDH objects as its usage is unnecessary and can lead to inconsistent state. (Michael Ruddy) #3511.
    • Update root certificates from the current list stored maintained by Mozilla NSS. (Ben Noordhuis) #3951.
    • Multiple CA certificates can now be passed with the ca option to TLS methods as an array of strings or in a single new-line separated string. (Ben Noordhuis) #4099
  • tools: Include a tick processor in core, exposed via the --prof-process command-line argument which can be used to process V8 profiling output files generated when using the --prof command-line argument. (Matt Loring) #4021.

Known issues

  • Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal. #690
  • Calling dns.setServers() while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion. #894
  • url.resolve may transfer the auth portion of the url when resolving between two full hosts, see #1435.
  • Unicode characters in filesystem paths are not handled consistently across platforms or Node.js APIs. See #2088, #3401 and #3519.
