Node v5.8.0 (Current)

by Jeremiah Senkpiel,

Notable changes

  • child_process: send() now accepts an options parameter (cjihrig) #5283.
    • Currently the only option is keepOpen, which keeps the underlying socket open after the message is sent.
  • constants: ENGINE_METHOD_RSA is now correctly exposed (Sam Roberts) #5463.
  • Fixed two regressions which originated in v5.7.0:
    • http: Errors inside of http client callbacks now propagate correctly (Trevor Norris) #5591.
    • path: Fixed normalization of absolute paths (Evan Lucas) #5589.
  • repl: start() no longer requires an options parameter (cjihrig) #5388.
  • util: Improved format() performance 50-300% (Evan Lucas) #5360.
