18     <p>
19     JSCoverage 0.5 is available for <a href="http://siliconforks.com/jscoverage/download.html">download</a>.
20     </p>
21     <p>
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 siliconforks 497 A new mode of operation, called "window mode", allows you to run code in a new browser window (or tab).
27     </li>
28     <li>
29 siliconforks 432 The method used to calculate overall percentage code coverage for all
30     files has changed. Previously, the calculation was done using an
31     unweighted average: each file's percentage code coverage contributed
32     equally to the total, regardless of the number of lines of code in the
33     file. Now, the calculation is done using a weighted average. This
34     fixes
35 siliconforks 435 <a href="http://siliconforks.com/jscoverage/bugs/6">bug #6</a> (thanks to
36 siliconforks 432 Liu Cougar).
37     </li>
38 siliconforks 433 <li>
39     Contiguous lines in the "Missing" column are now grouped together (thanks to
40     Liu Cougar).
41     </li>
42 siliconforks 435 <li>
43 siliconforks 487 The "Source" tab is no longer empty when code being tested throws an
44     uncaught exception
45     (fixing <a href="http://siliconforks.com/jscoverage/bugs/5">bug #5</a>)
46 siliconforks 435 </li>
47 siliconforks 487 <li>
48     Previously, certain uses of the <code>new</code> operator were
49     instrumented incorrectly; this has now been fixed
50     (thanks to Guillaume Lung).
51     </li>
52     <li>
53     The <code>jscoverage-server</code> program now allows more characters in
54     URLs (thanks to Guillaume Lung).
55     </li>
56     <li>
57     The <code>jscoverage-server</code> program now handles HTTP headers with
58     empty values (thanks to Velo).
59     </li>
60     <li>
61     The <code>jscoverage</code> program now refuses to instrument code which
62     has already been instrumented (thanks to Velo).
63     </li>
64     <li>
65     URLs containing spaces now work correctly (thanks to Igor Papkov).
66     </li>
67     <li>
68     Previously, on Windows, the <code>jscoverage</code> program
69     was unable to instrument a directory in a drive root; this has now been
70     fixed.
71     </li>
72     <li>
73     A limitation of 65,535 lines per file and 65,535 characters per line has
74     been removed.
75     </li>
76     <li>
77     Floating-point numbers are how handled with improved precision.
78     </li>
79     <li>
80     The <code>jscoverage-server</code> program can no longer bind to the same port multiple times on Windows.
81     </li>
82     <li>
83     Some bugs in <code>jscoverage-server</code>'s handling of the "chunked"
84     Transfer-Encoding have been fixed.
85     </li>
86 siliconforks 488 <li>
87     Compilation under Cygwin now uses the <code>-mno-cygwin</code> flag.
88     </li>
89 siliconforks 490 <li>
90     The wire format used for submitting coverage reports for storage by
91     <code>jscoverage-server</code> has changed. (This change will not have
92     any visible effects for most users; it will only be of interest to those
93     who have written code which parses that format.)
94     </li>
95 siliconforks 432 </ul>
96    
97 siliconforks 415 <h3><a name="20081211">December 11, 2008 - JSCoverage 0.4</a></h3>
98 siliconforks 231 <p>
99     JSCoverage 0.4 is available for <a href="http://siliconforks.com/jscoverage/download.html">download</a>.
100     </p>
101     <p>
102     This release includes many new features:
103     </p>
104     <ul class="list">
105     <li>
106     The new <code>jscoverage-server</code> program is provided as an
107     alternative to the <code>jscoverage</code> program. The
108     <code>jscoverage-server</code> program is a simple HTTP server which
109     instruments JavaScript code as it is served; this allows you to execute
110     JavaScript and gather code coverage statistics without a preliminary
111     step of creating instrumented code. The <code>jscoverage-server</code>
112     program can either serve files directly from the filesystem or run as a
113     proxy server (with the <code>--proxy</code> option), instrumenting
114     JavaScript provided by another web server.
115     <li>
116     Using <code>jscoverage-server</code>, coverage reports can now be stored
117     to the filesystem.
118     </li>
119     <li>
120     JSCoverage now recognizes special JavaScript comments which specify that
121     certain lines of code should be ignored in coverage reports.
122     </li>
123     <li>
124     The new <code>--encoding</code> option provides better support for
125     different character encodings.
126     </li>
127     <li>
128     The JSCoverage user interface is now faster and more responsive.
129     </li>
130     <li>
131     The new <code>--no-highlight</code> option can be used to disable syntax
132     highlighting (giving better performance for large JavaScript files).
133     </li>
134 siliconforks 285 <li>
135     The build system has been modified so that <code>make install</code>
136     only installs the <code>jscoverage</code> and
137     <code>jscoverage-server</code> executables and their manual pages.
138     (Previous versions installed SpiderMonkey library and executable files,
139     which could conflict with other versions of SpiderMonkey installed on
140     your system.)
141     </li>
142 siliconforks 368 <li>
143     JSCoverage now supports several features beyond those found in the
144     <cite>ECMAScript Language Specification</cite>, including the following:
145     <ul class="list">
146     <li>getters and setters
147     <li><code>for each</code> loops
148     <li>generators and iterators
149     <li>the <code>let</code> keyword
150     <li>destructuring assignment
151     <li>array comprehensions
152     <li>expression closures
153     <li>generator expressions
154 siliconforks 231 </ul>
155 siliconforks 368 Use the new <code>--js-version</code> option to enable these features.
156     </li>
157     </ul>
158 siliconforks 393 <p>
159     The GCC C++ compiler (<code>g++</code>) is now required to compile
160     JSCoverage. (Previously, only the C compiler was needed.)
161     </p>
162 siliconforks 419 <p>
