Evan Lucas

Notable changes

  • contextify: Fixed a memory consumption issue related to heavy use of vm.createContext and vm.runInNewContext. (Ali Ijaz Sheikh)
  • governance: The following members have been added as collaborators:
    • Andreas Madsen (@AndreasMadsen)
    • Benjamin Gruenbaum (@benjamingr)
    • Claudio Rodriguez (@claudiorodriguez)
    • Glen Keane (@thekemkid)
    • Jeremy Whitlock (@whitlockjc)
    • Matt Loring (@matthewloring)
    • Phillip Johnsen (@phillipj)
  • lib: copy arguments object instead of leaking it (Nathan Woltman)
  • src: allow both -i and -e flags to be used at the same time (Rich Trott)
  • timers: Internal Node.js timeouts now use the same logic path as those created with setTimeout() (Jeremiah Senkpiel) #4007
    • This may cause a slightly different performance profile in some situations. So far, it has shown to be positive in most cases.
  • v8: backport fb4ccae from v8 upstream (Vladimir Krivosheev) #4231
    • breakout events from v8 to offer better support for external debuggers
  • zlib: add support for concatenated members (Kári Tristan Helgason)
    • Previously, if multiple members were in the same archive, only the first would be read. The others are no longer thrown away.
