17 <h3><a name="TODO">TODO, 2009 - JSCoverage 0.5</a></h3>
18 <p>
19 JSCoverage 0.5 is available for <a href="http://siliconforks.com/jscoverage/download.html">download</a>.
20 </p>
21 <p>
22 This release contains an assortment of new features and bug fixes:
23 </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 <a href="http://siliconforks.com/jscoverage/bugs/6">bug 6</a> (thanks to
33 Liu Cougar).
34 </li>
35 </ul>

37 <h3><a name="20081211">December 11, 2008 - JSCoverage 0.4</a></h3>
38 <p>
39 JSCoverage 0.4 is available for <a href="http://siliconforks.com/jscoverage/download.html">download</a>.
40 </p>
41 <p>
42 This release includes many new features:
43 </p>
44 <ul class="list">
45 <li>
46 The new <code>jscoverage-server</code> program is provided as an
47 alternative to the <code>jscoverage</code> program. The
48 <code>jscoverage-server</code> program is a simple HTTP server which
49 instruments JavaScript code as it is served; this allows you to execute
50 JavaScript and gather code coverage statistics without a preliminary
51 step of creating instrumented code. The <code>jscoverage-server</code>
52 program can either serve files directly from the filesystem or run as a
53 proxy server (with the <code>--proxy</code> option), instrumenting
54 JavaScript provided by another web server.
55 <li>
56 Using <code>jscoverage-server</code>, coverage reports can now be stored
57 to the filesystem.
58 </li>
59 <li>
60 JSCoverage now recognizes special JavaScript comments which specify that
61 certain lines of code should be ignored in coverage reports.
62 </li>
63 <li>
64 The new <code>--encoding</code> option provides better support for
65 different character encodings.
66 </li>
67 <li>
68 The JSCoverage user interface is now faster and more responsive.
69 </li>
70 <li>
71 The new <code>--no-highlight</code> option can be used to disable syntax
72 highlighting (giving better performance for large JavaScript files).
73 </li>
74 <li>
75 The build system has been modified so that <code>make install</code>
76 only installs the <code>jscoverage</code> and
77 <code>jscoverage-server</code> executables and their manual pages.
78 (Previous versions installed SpiderMonkey library and executable files,
79 which could conflict with other versions of SpiderMonkey installed on
80 your system.)
81 </li>
82 <li>
83 JSCoverage now supports several features beyond those found in the
84 <cite>ECMAScript Language Specification</cite>, including the following:
85 <ul class="list">
86 <li>getters and setters
87 <li><code>for each</code> loops
88 <li>generators and iterators
89 <li>the <code>let</code> keyword
90 <li>destructuring assignment
91 <li>array comprehensions
92 <li>expression closures
93 <li>generator expressions
94 </ul>
95 Use the new <code>--js-version</code> option to enable these features.
96 </li>
97 </ul>
98 <p>
99 The GCC C++ compiler (<code>g++</code>) is now required to compile
100 JSCoverage. (Previously, only the C compiler was needed.)
101 </p>
