Release Notes: Lots of under the hood changes were made. A new subprocess was added. The curl and xml modules were re-introduced. CommonJS support was improved. Easy installation methods were added. There are now .debs for an Ubuntu PPA, Windows binary Zip files, and Mac OS X homebrew support. For the C++ coders building modules, it is now even easier to build, compile, and install plugins using cmake.
Release Notes: Build trees are now relocatable. You can move the built tree to a different place on the filesystem and module loading will do the right thing. require() has been refactored to enable JITting of JS modules (assuming a recent build of spidermonkey). The CommonJS "fs-base" (proposed) module is mostly implemented. JS source files are now treated as UTF-8. This means you can have Unicode literals in .js source files now. Many other small improvements and bugfixes were made.
Release Notes: Apart from some very minor tweaks, this release mainly brings the ability to manually enable and disable plugins in the build system.
