22 siliconforks 487 This release contains a number of new features and bug fixes:
23 siliconforks 432 </p>
24     <ul class="list">
25     <li>
26     The method used to calculate overall percentage code coverage for all
27     files has changed. Previously, the calculation was done using an
28     unweighted average: each file's percentage code coverage contributed
29     equally to the total, regardless of the number of lines of code in the
30     file. Now, the calculation is done using a weighted average. This
31     fixes
32 siliconforks 435 <a href="http://siliconforks.com/jscoverage/bugs/6">bug #6</a> (thanks to
33 siliconforks 432 Liu Cougar).
34     </li>
35 siliconforks 433 <li>
36     Contiguous lines in the "Missing" column are now grouped together (thanks to
37     Liu Cougar).
38     </li>
39 siliconforks 435 <li>
40 siliconforks 487 The "Source" tab is no longer empty when code being tested throws an
41     uncaught exception
42     (fixing <a href="http://siliconforks.com/jscoverage/bugs/5">bug #5</a>)
43 siliconforks 435 </li>
44 siliconforks 487 <li>
45     Previously, certain uses of the <code>new</code> operator were
46     instrumented incorrectly; this has now been fixed
47     (thanks to Guillaume Lung).
48     </li>
49     <li>
50     The <code>jscoverage-server</code> program now allows more characters in
51     URLs (thanks to Guillaume Lung).
52     </li>
53     <li>
54     The <code>jscoverage-server</code> program now handles HTTP headers with
55     empty values (thanks to Velo).
56     </li>
57     <li>
58     The <code>jscoverage</code> program now refuses to instrument code which
59     has already been instrumented (thanks to Velo).
60     </li>
61     <li>
62     URLs containing spaces now work correctly (thanks to Igor Papkov).
63     </li>
64     <li>
65     Previously, on Windows, the <code>jscoverage</code> program
66     was unable to instrument a directory in a drive root; this has now been
67     fixed.
68     </li>
69     <li>
70     A limitation of 65,535 lines per file and 65,535 characters per line has
71     been removed.
72     </li>
73     <li>
74     Floating-point numbers are how handled with improved precision.
75     </li>
76     <li>
77     The <code>jscoverage-server</code> program can no longer bind to the same port multiple times on Windows.
78     </li>
79     <li>
80     Some bugs in <code>jscoverage-server</code>'s handling of the "chunked"
81     Transfer-Encoding have been fixed.
82     </li>
83 siliconforks 488 <li>
84     Compilation under Cygwin now uses the <code>-mno-cygwin</code> flag.
85     </li>
86 siliconforks 432 </ul>
87    
88 siliconforks 415 <h3><a name="20081211">December 11, 2008 - JSCoverage 0.4</a></h3>
89 siliconforks 231 <p>
90     JSCoverage 0.4 is available for <a href="http://siliconforks.com/jscoverage/download.html">download</a>.
91     </p>
92     <p>
93     This release includes many new features:
94     </p>
95     <ul class="list">
96     <li>
97     The new <code>jscoverage-server</code> program is provided as an
98     alternative to the <code>jscoverage</code> program. The
99     <code>jscoverage-server</code> program is a simple HTTP server which
100     instruments JavaScript code as it is served; this allows you to execute
101     JavaScript and gather code coverage statistics without a preliminary
102     step of creating instrumented code. The <code>jscoverage-server</code>
103     program can either serve files directly from the filesystem or run as a
104     proxy server (with the <code>--proxy</code> option), instrumenting
105     JavaScript provided by another web server.
106     <li>
107     Using <code>jscoverage-server</code>, coverage reports can now be stored
108     to the filesystem.
109     </li>
110     <li>
111     JSCoverage now recognizes special JavaScript comments which specify that
112     certain lines of code should be ignored in coverage reports.
113     </li>
114     <li>
115     The new <code>--encoding</code> option provides better support for
116     different character encodings.
117     </li>
118     <li>
119     The JSCoverage user interface is now faster and more responsive.
120     </li>
121     <li>
122     The new <code>--no-highlight</code> option can be used to disable syntax
123     highlighting (giving better performance for large JavaScript files).
124     </li>
125 siliconforks 285 <li>
126     The build system has been modified so that <code>make install</code>
127     only installs the <code>jscoverage</code> and
128     <code>jscoverage-server</code> executables and their manual pages.
129     (Previous versions installed SpiderMonkey library and executable files,
130     which could conflict with other versions of SpiderMonkey installed on
131     your system.)
132     </li>
133 siliconforks 368 <li>
134     JSCoverage now supports several features beyond those found in the
135     <cite>ECMAScript Language Specification</cite>, including the following:
136     <ul class="list">
137     <li>getters and setters
138     <li><code>for each</code> loops
139     <li>generators and iterators
140     <li>the <code>let</code> keyword
141     <li>destructuring assignment
142     <li>array comprehensions
143     <li>expression closures
144     <li>generator expressions
145 siliconforks 231 </ul>
146 siliconforks 368 Use the new <code>--js-version</code> option to enable these features.
147     </li>
148     </ul>
149 siliconforks 393 <p>
150     The GCC C++ compiler (<code>g++</code>) is now required to compile
151     JSCoverage. (Previously, only the C compiler was needed.)
152     </p>
153 siliconforks 419 <p>
