Finally :) So, it's officiall API freeze?

Freezing the API would be kinda silly (for any project), but the API has been
considered stable for quite a while now.

The question might be for how long it's frozen, e.g. if it is for 0.2.x
At least at some point it would be good to know how safe it is to
upgrade to whatever minor version without having to touch API calls.

It's a reasonable approximation of the API I'm aiming for - I'm
willing to support a "stable" branch now. I'll be extra careful about
interface changes on 0.2 - I am for zero - mostly it will be bug fixes
and performance improvements.

A new 0.3 development branch will not be far in the future.

I will attempt to make it safe to upgrade blindly on 0.2.x.

Will the "stable" branch be binary compatible for extension modules or
do I have to recompile them for 0.2.x releases?

Best Fabian

I will attempt to binary compatible. This is a good hard goal for 0.4
- but let's see how well we can do in 0.2.

C++ yey! :-/

If I don't have to update all my libraries for the latest node version how am I suppose to spend my Mondays?

Still planning on accepting those stdio module patches I sent a while
back? Or is that going to be in 0.3.x?

That'll be 0.3 - which is not so distant.

Cool. I think it'll be nice to have some kinda-stable milestones like
this with just bugfixes, and another branch to do experiments on.
