Warning in crypto.pbkdf2 with NodeJS 6.

See original GitHub issue

I recently upgraded to NodeJS 6.1.0, npm 3.8.6. Now Superlogin APIs result in this deprecation warning -

(node:11324) DeprecationWarning: crypto.pbkdf2 without specifying a digest is deprecated. Please specify a digest

You can add following dependency in your package.json for npm to fetch dependency directly from github repo which already has the fix. "couch-pwd": "zemirco/couch-pwd"

This now breaks in Node 8. Superlogin throws now – no longer just deprecated. It is a straight failure now.

TypeError: The "digest" argument is required and must not be undefined
    at pbkdf2 (crypto.js:635:11)
    at Object.exports.pbkdf2 (crypto.js:623:10)
    at Object.exports.hash (/.../node_modules/couch-pwd/index.js:41:12)
    at Object.exports.verifyPassword (/.../node_modules/superlogin/lib/util.js:37:10)
    at /.../node_modules/superlogin/lib/local.js:55:18
    at <anonymous>

Can we get this updated? Also, the npm module version hasn’t been updated in quite a while and it would be good to get some recent fixes in a distributable package form.
