Node.js v0.6.3: NPM included
Node.js version 0.6.3 (stable) came out on 2011-11-25. Highlight (quoting “Node v0.6.3” by piscisaureus for node blog):
Land NPM [Node Package Manager] in Node. It is included in packages/installers and installed on make install.
NPM is one of the reasons why Node.js is so convenient – some of the packages (such as jasmine-node
) even automatically install command line utilities. Thus, it’s good to see NPM included. Node.js has installers for Windows and OS X, in addition to more Unix-y ways of installation.
