Node.js is practically an evented I/O library for Google’s V8 JavaScript engine.Experts recommend it for creating and deploying for traffic and data intensive real-time apps that need to run the same across various platforms and devices.Node.js is currently considered the top platform for running server-side JavaScript code, being used in production in big companies like Google, eBay, Yahoo, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Cloud9 and many more.The platform is very well documented and benefits from a very large module repository, managed through the npm (Node.js Package Manager) utility.Version 4.x is the first version of Node.js that has included the io.js codebase as well.

This is changelog for version 4.0.0 :

  • child_process: ChildProcess.prototype.send() and process.send() operate asynchronously across all platforms so an optional callback parameter has been introduced that will be invoked once the message has been sent, i.e. .send(message[, sendHandle][, callback]).
  • node: Rename “io.js” code to “Node.js”.
  • node-gyp: This release bundles an updated version of node-gyp that works with all versions of Node.js and io.js including nightly and release candidate builds. From io.js v3 and Node.js v4 onward, it will only download a headers tarball when building addons rather than the entire source.
  • npm: Upgrade to version 2.14.2 from 2.13.3, includes a security update, see https://github.com/npm/npm/releases/tag/v2.14.2 for more details.
