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 <li>
36 Contiguous lines in the "Missing" column are now grouped together (thanks to
37 Liu Cougar).

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