The 0.4.2 version of the Node.js driver for Oracle Database is out.
Node-oracledb is now officially on the npmjs.com repository. This simplifies the Install instructions by removing the need to manually clone or download from GitHub. Thanks to Tim Branyen for setting this up and handing over stewardship to us.
Metadata support was added. Column names are now provided in the execute() callback result object. See the doc example.
We saw a few people try to use strangely old versions of Node 0.10. I've bumped up the lower limit requirement a bit. It won't force you to use the latest Node.js 0.10 patch set but you really should keep up to date with security fixes.
The default Instant Client directory on AIX was changed from /opt/oracle/instantclient_12_1 to /opt/oracle/instantclient. This now matches the default of other platforms.
One other small change was some improvements to the Windows install documentation.
Yes, work is continuing behind the scenes on other features.
