Full documentation may be found on the [Node.js website](https://nodejs.org/dist/v8.11.1/docs/api/stream.html). If you want to guarantee a stable streams base, regardless of what version of Node you, or the users of your libraries are using, use **readable-stream** *only* and avoid the *"stream"* module in Node-core, for background see [this blogpost](http://r.va.gg/2014/06/why-i-dont-use-nodes-core-stream-module.html). As of version 2.0.0 **readable-stream** uses semantic versioning. # Streams Working Group `readable-stream` is maintained by the Streams Working Group, which oversees the development and maintenance of the Streams API within Node.js. The responsibilities of the Streams Working Group include: * Addressing stream issues on the Node.js issue tracker. * Authoring and editing stream documentation within the Node.js project. * Reviewing changes to stream subclasses within the Node.js project. * Redirecting changes to streams from the Node.js project to this project. * Assisting in the implementation of stream providers within Node.js. * Recommending versions of `readable-stream` to be included in Node.js. * Messaging about the future of streams to give the community advance notice of changes. ## Team Members * **Chris Dickinson** ([@chrisdickinson](https://github.com/chrisdickinson)) <[email protected]> - Release GPG key: 9554F04D7259F04124DE6B476D5A82AC7E37093B * **Calvin Metcalf** ([@calvinmetcalf](https://github.com/calvinmetcalf)) <[email protected]> - Release GPG key: F3EF5F62A87FC27A22E643F714CE4FF5015AA242 * **Rod Vagg** ([@rvagg](https://github.com/rvagg)) <[email protected]> - Release GPG key: DD8F2338BAE7501E3DD5AC78C273792F7D83545D * **Sam Newman** ([@sonewman](https://github.com/sonewman)) <[email protected]> * **Mathias Buus** ([@mafintosh](https://github.com/mafintosh)) <[email protected]> * **Domenic Denicola** ([@domenic](https://github.com/domenic)) <[email protected]> * **Matteo Collina** ([@mcollina](https://github.com/mcollina)) <[email protected]> - Release GPG key: 3ABC01543F22DD2239285CDD818674489FBC127E * **Irina Shestak** ([@lrlna](https://github.com/lrlna)) <[email protected]>
