This week we have one io.js release v2.3.1, complete changelog from previous releases can be found on GitHub.

Notable changes

  • module: The number of syscalls made during a require() have been significantly reduced again (see #1801 from v2.2.0 for previous work), which should lead to a performance improvement (Pierre Inglebert) #1920.
  • npm:
  • Upgrade to v2.11.2 (Rebecca Turner) #1956.
  • Upgrade to v2.11.3 (Forrest L Norvell) #2018.
  • zlib: A bug was discovered where the process would abort if the final part of a zlib decompression results in a buffer that would exceed the maximum length of 0x3fffffff bytes (~1GiB). This was likely to only occur during buffered decompression (rather than streaming). This is now fixed and will instead result in a thrown RangeError(Michaël Zasso) #1811.

Known issues

See https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/labels/confirmed-bug for complete and current list of known issues.

  • Some problems with unreferenced timers running during beforeExit are still to be resolved. See #1264.
  • Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal #690
  • process.send() is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see #760 and fix in#774
  • 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.
