Heroku Changelog Node.js buildpack PATH order changed for improved testing

Change effective on 25 April 2014

The Node.js buildpack’s vendored node and npm binaries are now prepended to the PATH (instead of appended), giving them precedence over any locally-installed node or npm binaries in your development environment. This change was made to improve the buildpack testing process and will have no impact on running apps.

For more information about node binaries and PATH, see the Node.js Support article on Dev Center.
