Node's more advanced fork, Io.js is going to be merged back into Node. If you were an early adopter of the tech, you should be extra happy with the outcome. Io.js first launched as a Node fork in response to slow release cycles when Joyent primarily governed the Node project.
The move doesn’t immediately merge the two currently separate Node.js and Io.js projects, but that work is already happening. “Releases of io.js will continue until the converged release is ready,” Rogers told VentureBeat in an email. “Once that is done all future releases will be called ‘node’ including long-term support releases of prior node.js and io.js major release lines.”
