just in case you into or running NodeJS, then you might be interested in reading up on what’s been updated with the latest release — Node v8.0.0 (Current)
The next major release of Node.js brings a range of significant changes and additions, far too many for us to cover adequately in a blog post such as this. This article contains a summary of the most significant changes and features.
Say hello to npm version 5.0.0
npm, Inc. recently announced the release of version 5.0.0 of the npm client and we are happy to include this significant new version within Node.js 8.0.0.
Say hello to V8 5.8
The V8 5.8 engine also helps set up a pending transition to the new TurboFan + Ignition compiler pipeline, which promises to provide significant new performance optimizations for all Node.js applications. Although they have existed in previous versions of V8, TurboFan and Ignition will be enabled by default for the first time in V8 5.9. The new compiler pipeline represents such a significant change that the Node.js Core Technical Committee (CTC) chose to postpone the Node.js 8 release, originally scheduled for April, in order to better accommodate it.
been checking out this static site generator called Metalsmith, which runs on NodeJS… pretty cool stuff, though at the moment i’m just scratching the surface… hell, kinda wondering if i should maybe ditch wordpress and maybe create my own personal little metalsmith powered blog.
