Encountering the following npm related issue on using the latest buildkit. Any suggestions? NPM is already at latest.

If someone has a working buildkit they could tell me which version of npm they're on that'd be great.


vagrant@civi:~$ ~/buildkit/bin/civibuild create "4719" --admin-pass "password" --civi-ver "4.7.19-rc" --type "drupal-demo" --url "http://4719:7979" --force npm WARN npm npm does not support Node.js v0.10.25 npm WARN npm You should probably upgrade to a newer version of node as we npm WARN npm can't make any promises that npm will work with this version. npm WARN npm You can find the latest version at https://nodejs.org/
