Node 0.3.2 Released

Node 0.3.2
has been released. I've annotated the release notes with links to the
relevant documentation:


Kod by Rasmus Andersson is an editor for Mac OS that uses Node as the scripting language. The interface looks and
behaves a lot like Google's Chrome, and the editor and syntax
highlighting are styled with CSS. It's designed to be concurrent so the
app should feel fast, and it's built using Objective-C.

If you're a Mac-based JavaScript developer, Kod might suit you. If you
want to try it, register for a beta invite and take a look at this
discussion: Kod Beta

Node, USB, and Kinect

Schakko, who writes node-usb, has
node-usb-kinect.js which talks to Microsoft's Kinect. So if you get one for Christmas and
quickly tire of the boring arm-waving games, maybe you could hack it
with Node!
