Node.js creator Ryan Dahl has announced that he is taking a break from the project. Isaac Schlueter will step in to fill the void. Dahl wrote, "I am still an employee at Joyent and will advise from the sidelines but I won’t be involved in the day-to-day bug fixes. Isaac has final say over what makes it into the releases. Appeals for new features, changes, and bug fixes should now be directed at him."
