Node.js client 0.4.0 released with encryption and cross-site failover

We've just released Infinispan Node.js Client version 0.4.0 which comes with encrypted client connectivity via SSL/TLS (with optional TLS/SNI support), as well as cross-site client failover.

Thanks to the encryption integration, Node.js Hot Rod clients can talk to Hot Rod servers via an encrypted channel, allowing trusted client and/or authenticated clients to connect. Check the documentation for information on how to enable encryption in Node.js Hot Rod client.

Also, we've added the possibility for the client to connect to multiple clusters. Normally, the client is connected to a single cluster, but if all nodes fail to respond, the client can failover to a different cluster, as long as one or more initial addresses have been provided. On top of that, clients can manually switch clusters using switchToCluster and switchToDefaultCluster APIs. Check documentation for more info.

On top of that, we've applied several bug fixes that further tighten the inner workings of the Node.js client.

If you're a Node.js user and want to store data remotely in Infinispan Server instances, please give the client a go and tell us what you think of it via our forum, via our issue tracker or via IRC on the #infinispan channel on Freenode.
