As the new project lead for Node.js I am excited for our future, and want to give you an update on where we are.
One of Node's major goals is to provide a small core, one that provides the right amount of surface area for consumers to achieve and innovate, without Node itself getting in the way. That ethos is alive and well, we're going to continue to provide a small, simple, and stable set of APIs that facilitate the amazing uses the community finds for Node. We're going to keep providing backward compatible APIs, so code you write today will continue to work on future versions of Node. And of course, performance tuning and bug fixing will always be an important part of every release cycle.
The release of Node v0.12 is imminent, and a lot of significant work has gone into this release. There's streams3, a better keep alive agent for http, the vm module is now based on contextify, and significant performance work done in core features (Buffers, TLS, streams). We have a few APIs that are still being ironed out before we can feature freeze and branch (execSync, AsyncListeners, user definable instrumentation). We are definitely in the home stretch.
But Node is far from done. In the short term there will be new releases of v8 that we'll need to track, as well as integrating the new ABI stable C module interface. There are interesting language features that we can use to extend Node APIs (extend not replace). We need to write more tooling, we need to expose more interfaces to further enable innovation. We can explore functionality to embed Node in your existing project.
The list can go on and on. Yet, Node is larger than the software itself. Node is also the community, the businesses, the ecosystems, and their related events. With that in mind there are things we can work to improve.
The core team will be improving its procedures such that we can quickly and efficiently communicate with you. We want to provide high quality and timely responses to issues, describe our development roadmap, as well as provide our progress during each release cycle. We know you're interested in our plans for Node, and it's important we're able to provide that information. Communication should be bidirectional: we want to continue to receive feedback about how you're using Node, and what your pain points are.
After the release of v0.12 we will facilitate the community to contribute and curate content for nodejs.org. Allowing the community to continue to invest in Node will ensure nodejs.org is an excellent starting point and the primary resource for tutorials, documentation, and materials regarding Node. We have an awesome and engaged community, and they're paramount to our success.
I'm excited for Node's future, to see new and interesting use cases, and to continue to help businesses scale and innovate with Node. We have a lot we can accomplish together, and I look forward to seeing those results.
Node's growth has continued and accelerated immensely over the last few years. More people are developing and sharing more code with Node and npm than I would have ever imagined. Countless companies are using Node, and npm along with it.
Over the last year, TJ Fontaine has become absolutely essential to the Node.js project. He's been building releases, managing the test bots, fixing nasty bugs and making decisions for the project with constant focus on the needs of our users. He was responsible for an update to MDB to support running ::findjsobjects on Linux core dumps, and is working on a shim layer that will provide a stable C interface for Node binary addons. In partnership with Joyent and The Node Firm, he's helped to create a path forward for scalable issue triaging. He's become the primary point of contact keeping us all driving the project forward together.
Anyone who's been close to the core project knows that he's been effectively leading the project for a while now, so we're making it official. Effective immediately, TJ Fontaine is the Node.js project lead. I will remain a Node core committer, and expect to continue to contribute to the project in that role. My primary focus, however, will be npm.
At this point, npm needs work, and I am eager to deliver what the Node community needs from its package manager. I am starting a company, npm, Inc., to deliver new products and services related to npm. I'll be sharing many more details soon about exactly how this is going to work, and what we'll be offering. For now, suffice it to say that everything currently free will remain free, and everything currently flaky will get less flaky. Pursuing new revenue is how we can keep providing the npm registry service in a long-term sustainable way, and it has to be done very carefully so that we don't damage what we've all built together.
npm is what I'm most passionate about, and I am now in a position to give it my full attention. I've done more than I could have hoped to accomplish in running Node core, and it's well past time to hand the control of the project off to its next gatekeeper.
TJ is exactly the leader who can help us take Node.js to 1.0 and beyond. He brings professionalism, rigor, and a continued focus on inclusive community values and culture. In the coming days, TJ will spell out his plans in greater detail. I look forward to the places that Node will go with his guidance.
Please join me in welcoming him to this new role :)
