    Thanks, though if I may add some positive criticism, changes like “Debugger improvements” are not very descriptive.

    For example, I’ve personally had debugger issues, but this statement says nothing about what exactly has improved and if it is related to the issues I had.

    Good going anyway 😉

    It is apparently impossible to use node.js 0.5.8 on Windows XP. The .exe file provided will not run as it is not a valid Windows executable, and the vcbuild.bat aborts right away with the message:
    C:\node-v0.5.8> vcbuild.bat release test-all
    python: can’t open file ‘tools\gyp_node’: [Errno 2] No such file or directory
    Failed to create vc project files.

    Is there a solution for me?
