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