In case you didn’t know, NodeJS v0.10.0 has been recently released, a number of interesting changes were mentioned in the blog post, mainly around making some core APIs easier to use, which required several in changes in the codebase to support, and caused some interesting performance characteristics changes .

Although I can’t think of a scenario where I’d deselect any of these, just the fact that I could clearly see and choose what Node installer will do was great.

Great job, Node team :-).
