Name        : libuv
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 0.10.19
Release     : 1.fc18
URL         : http://nodejs.org/
Summary     : Platform layer for node.js
Description :
libuv is a new platform layer for Node. Its purpose is to abstract IOCP on
Windows and libev on Unix systems. We intend to eventually contain all platform
differences in this library.

Update Information:

This release contains the fix for the infamous Walmart memory leak, Node core is no longer leaking 4 bytes for every closed handle. Thanks to Josh Clulow, Dave Pacheco, Bryan Cantrill, and Robert Mustacchi who contributed invaluable feedback and guidance while working through this. As well as Trevor Norris who contributed an excellent reduced case that manifested on the unstable branch and lead directly to the root cause. Great team effort!
