Deno uses V8 and is built in Rust. It is described as secure by default as it has no file, network, or environment access, unless explicitly enabled. Deno was created by the same developer who created node.js - Ryan Dahl - and its name is a rearrangement of the letters in node.
This release adds support for the Web Storage API. This API provides local and session storage that can be used to store a small amount of data persistently, without direct file system access. Support has also been added for WASM (WebAssembly Shared Memory), as well as support for atomics. This feature is already enabled by default in Chrome and Firefox, and now also in Deno. The developers note that WASM threading is not yet possible in Deno, because of the lack of support for transferring (shared) array buffers to workers.
The new release is available for download now.
