2015-05-31 io.js v2.2.0 Release PR-URL: https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/pull/1808 Notable Changes: * node: Speed-up require() by replacing usage of fs.statSync() and fs.readFileSync() with internal variants that are faster for this use-case and do not create as many objects for the garbage collector to clean up. The primary two benefits are: significant increase in application start-up time on typical applications and better start-up time for the debugger by eliminating almost all of the thousands of exception events. (Ben Noordhuis) #1801. * node: Resolution of pre-load modules (-r or --require) now follows the standard require() rules rather than just resolving paths, so you can now pre-load modules in node_modules. (Ali Ijaz Sheikh) #1812. * npm: Upgraded npm to v2.11.0. New hooks for preversion, version, and postversion lifecycle events, some SPDX-related license changes and license file inclusions. See the release notes for full details.
This repository began as a GitHub fork of joyent/node.
io.js contributions, releases, and contributorship are under an open governance model. We intend to land, with increasing regularity, releases which are compatible with the npm ecosystem that has been built to date for Node.js.
The official name is io.js, which should never be capitalized, especially not at the start of a sentence, unless it is being displayed in a location that is customarily all-caps (such as the title of man pages).
Binaries, installers, and source tarballs are available at https://iojs.org.
Nightly builds are available at https://iojs.org/download/nightly/, listed under their version string which includes their date (in UTC time) and the commit SHA at the HEAD of the release.
API documentation is available in each release and nightly directory under docs. https://iojs.org/api/ points to the latest version.
Release and nightly download directories all contain a SHASUM256.txt file that lists the SHA checksums for each file available for download. To check that a downloaded file matches the checksum, run it through
sha256sum with a command such as:
$ grep iojs-vx.y.z.tar.gz SHASUMS256.txt | sha256sum -c -
(Where “iojs-vx.y.z.tar.gz” is the name of the file you have downloaded)
Additionally, releases (not nightlies) have GPG signed copies of SHASUM256.txt files available as SHASUM256.txt.asc. You can use
gpg to verify that the file has not been tampered with.
To verify a SHASUM256.txt.asc, you will first need to import all of the GPG keys of individuals authorized to create releases. They are listed at the bottom of this README. Use a command such as this to import the keys:
$ gpg --keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net \ --recv-keys DD8F2338BAE7501E3DD5AC78C273792F7D83545D
(Include each of the key fingerprints at the end of this command.)
You can then use
gpg --verify SHASUMS256.txt.asc to verify that the file has been signed by an authorized member of the io.js team.
Once verified, use the SHASUMS256.txt.asc file to get the checksum for the binary verification command above.
g++4.8 or newer, or
clang++3.4 or newer
$ ./configure $ make $ [sudo] make install
If your Python binary is in a non-standard location or has a non-standard name, run the following instead:
$ export PYTHON=/path/to/python $ $PYTHON ./configure $ make $ [sudo] make install
To run the tests:
$ make test
To build the documentation:
$ make doc
To read the documentation:
$ man doc/iojs.1
> vcbuild nosign
To run the tests:
> vcbuild test
Be sure you have downloaded and extracted [Android NDK] (https://developer.android.com/tools/sdk/ndk/index.html) before in a folder. Then run:
$ ./android-configure /path/to/your/android-ndk $ make
Intl support is not enabled by default.
This option will build with “small” (English only) support, but the full
Intl (ECMA-402) APIs. With
--download=all it will download the ICU library as needed.
Unix / Macintosh:
$ ./configure --with-intl=small-icu --download=all
> vcbuild small-icu download-all
small-icu mode builds with English-only data. You can add full data at runtime.
Note: more docs are on the joyent/node wiki.
--download=all, this may download ICU if you don't have an ICU in
Unix / Macintosh:
$ ./configure --with-intl=full-icu --download=all
> vcbuild full-icu download-all
Intl object will not be available. This is the default at present, so this option is not normally needed.
Unix / Macintosh:
$ ./configure --with-intl=none
> vcbuild intl-none
$ pkg-config --modversion icu-i18n && ./configure --with-intl=system-icu
You can find other ICU releases at the ICU homepage. Download the file named something like
Unix / Macintosh
# from an already-unpacked ICU: $ ./configure --with-intl=[small-icu,full-icu] --with-icu-source=/path/to/icu # from a local ICU tarball $ ./configure --with-intl=[small-icu,full-icu] --with-icu-source=/path/to/icu.tgz # from a tarball URL $ ./configure --with-intl=full-icu --with-icu-source=http://url/to/icu.tgz
First unpack latest ICU to
deps/icu icu4c-##.#-src.tgz (or
deps/icu (You'll have:
> vcbuild full-icu
