NOTE: StrongNode is no longer available. We recommend API Connect for building APIs.

StrongNode 1.0.2 Maintenance Release is now available for Windows, Linux and MacOS X. It comes packaged with the latest and greatest, Node.js v0.10.11 (Stable). In case you missed the official announcement blog last week, new in this release:

  • npm upgraded to 1.2.30
  • libuv upgraded v0.10.11
  • plus more…

If you’d like to take a deeper dive into what’s new beyond the official release blog, you should check out our weekly “What’s New in Node.js and libuv” blog posts which give you plenty of color and commentary on what’s happening on the development front.
