Node.js Releases Version 6

The Node.js project has released version 6 of its popular open source JavaScript runtime. ?This release is committed to Long Term Support [LTS], which allows predictable long-term stability, reliability, performance and security to the growing number of enterprise users that are adopting Node.js as a key technology in their infrastructure,? said Mikeal Rogers, community manager for the Node.js Foundation.

One of the biggest improvements in the release is up to module loading that is up to four times faster than version 4. It also has better support for ECMAScript 2015, a new buffer API, a new constructor method, a zero-fill-buffers command-line flag, improved Math.random() implementation, more documentation and better testing capabilities.
