Name        : nodejs
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 0.10.32
Release     : 1.fc20
URL         : http://nodejs.org/
Summary     : JavaScript runtime
Description :
Node.js is a platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime
for easily building fast, scalable network applications.
Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that
makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive
real-time applications that run across distributed devices.

Update Information:

This update provides the latest stable version of Node.js and corresponding backports to the v8 package.

This update resolves CVE-2013-6668, which has only a minor impact since Node.js is not typically used to execute untrusted JavaScript.  For more information on the fixed vulnerability, please see the CVE bugs listed below.

Changes in this update include:

* v8: fix a crash introduced by previous release (Fedor Indutny)
* crypto: use domains for any callback-taking method (Chris Dickinson)
* http: do not send `0rnrn` in TE HEAD responses (Fedor Indutny)
* querystring: fix unescape override (Tristan Berger)
* url: Add support for RFC 3490 separators (Mathias Bynens)
* v8: backport CVE-2013-6668
* cluster: disconnect should not be synchronous (Sam Roberts)
* fs: fix fs.readFileSync fd leak when get RangeError (Jackson Tian)
* stream: fix Readable.wrap objectMode falsy values (James Halliday)
* timers: fix timers with non-integer delay hanging. (Julien Gilli)

  be done in a stable distribution release.  This build of nodejs will behave as
  if NODE_INVALID_UTF8 was set.  For more information on the implications, see:
