A new configure option,
--profile, has been added to both
branches, which enables gprof profiling. This can be used to benchmark
Node using the gprof tool, which you probably have installed as part of
your build environment.
Most of the other changes relate to playing better with the operating
system, or network/buffering stability.
Node.js Camp is a Node workshop in San Francisco:
Line up of speakers and contributors includes Ryan Dahl, Isaac Schlueter, Tim Caswell, Guillermo Rauch, Paul Querna, Matt Ranney, Mikeal Rogers and more!
This looks like a pretty amazing event to me, and the tickets start at
\$35 (before 30th Nov)! They're also planning a global tour, so I'll let you know what else they announce.

GlobTrie by Rick Branson is a highly optimized Node script for pattern matching strings:
It breaks down the pattern matchers into pieces and organizes them in a Trie (prefix search tree) structure, allowing them to be searched in roughly logarithmic time, versus linear time for just an array of regular expressions, for instance.
The currently supported pattern matchers are limited, modelled after
file path matching. However, the performance of this library destroys
Branson could be onto something interesting.
