文档中所示的每个例子都直接使用 Node.js 和 V8 的 API 来实现插件。 V8 的 API 可能并且已经与下一个 V8 的发行版本有显著的变化。 伴随着每次变化，插件为了能够继续工作，可能需要进行更新和重新编译。 Node.js 的发布计划会尽量减少这种变化的频率和影响，但 Node.js 目前可以确保 V8 API 的稳定性。
Each of the examples illustrated in this document make direct use of the Node.js and V8 APIs for implementing Addons. It is important to understand that the V8 API can, and has, changed dramatically from one V8 release to the next (and one major Node.js release to the next). With each change, Addons may need to be updated and recompiled in order to continue functioning. The Node.js release schedule is designed to minimize the frequency and impact of such changes but there is little that Node.js can do currently to ensure stability of the V8 APIs.
The Native Abstractions for Node.js (or
nan) provide a set of tools that
Addon developers are recommended to use to keep compatibility between past and
future releases of V8 and Node.js. See the
nan examples for an
illustration of how it can be used.
