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 a number 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).
38 </li>
39 <li>
40 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 </li>
44 <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 <li>
84 Compilation under Cygwin now uses the <code>-mno-cygwin</code> flag.
85 </li>
86 </ul>
87
88 <h3><a name="20081211">December 11, 2008 - JSCoverage 0.4</a></h3>
89 <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 <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 <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 </ul>
146 Use the new <code>--js-version</code> option to enable these features.
147 </li>
148 </ul>
149 <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 <p>
