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 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 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 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 <a href="http://siliconforks.com/jscoverage/bugs/6">bug #6</a> (thanks to
41 Liu Cougar).
42 </li>
43 <li>
44 Contiguous lines in the "Missing" column are now grouped together (thanks to
45 Liu Cougar).
46 </li>
47 <li>
48 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 </li>
52 <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 Encoded URLs are now handled better in the query string.
79 </li>
80 <li>
81 A limitation of 65,535 lines per file and 65,535 characters per line has
82 been removed.
83 </li>
84 <li>
85 Floating-point numbers are now handled with improved precision.
86 </li>
87 <li>
88 The <code>jscoverage-server</code> program can no longer bind to the same port multiple times on Windows.
89 </li>
90 <li>
91 Some bugs in <code>jscoverage-server</code>'s handling of the "chunked"
92 Transfer-Encoding have been fixed.
93 </li>
94 <li>
95 Compilation under Cygwin now uses the <code>-mno-cygwin</code> flag.
96 </li>
97 <li>
98 The wire format used for submitting coverage reports for storage by
99 <code>jscoverage-server</code> has changed. (This change will not have
100 any visible effects for most users; it will only be of interest to those
101 who have written code which parses that format.)
102 </li>
103 </ul>
104
105 <h3><a name="20081211">December 11, 2008 - JSCoverage 0.4</a></h3>
106 <p>
107 JSCoverage 0.4 is available for <a href="http://siliconforks.com/jscoverage/download.html">download</a>.
108 </p>
109 <p>
110 This release includes many new features:
111 </p>
112 <ul class="list">
113 <li>
114 The new <code>jscoverage-server</code> program is provided as an
115 alternative to the <code>jscoverage</code> program. The
116 <code>jscoverage-server</code> program is a simple HTTP server which
117 instruments JavaScript code as it is served; this allows you to execute
118 JavaScript and gather code coverage statistics without a preliminary
119 step of creating instrumented code. The <code>jscoverage-server</code>
120 program can either serve files directly from the filesystem or run as a
121 proxy server (with the <code>--proxy</code> option), instrumenting
122 JavaScript provided by another web server.
123 <li>
124 Using <code>jscoverage-server</code>, coverage reports can now be stored
125 to the filesystem.
126 </li>
127 <li>
128 JSCoverage now recognizes special JavaScript comments which specify that
129 certain lines of code should be ignored in coverage reports.
130 </li>
131 <li>
132 The new <code>--encoding</code> option provides better support for
133 different character encodings.
134 </li>
135 <li>
136 The JSCoverage user interface is now faster and more responsive.
137 </li>
138 <li>
139 The new <code>--no-highlight</code> option can be used to disable syntax
140 highlighting (giving better performance for large JavaScript files).
141 </li>
142 <li>
143 The build system has been modified so that <code>make install</code>
144 only installs the <code>jscoverage</code> and
145 <code>jscoverage-server</code> executables and their manual pages.
146 (Previous versions installed SpiderMonkey library and executable files,
147 which could conflict with other versions of SpiderMonkey installed on
148 your system.)
149 </li>
150 <li>
151 JSCoverage now supports several features beyond those found in the
152 <cite>ECMAScript Language Specification</cite>, including the following:
153 <ul class="list">
154 <li>getters and setters
155 <li><code>for each</code> loops
156 <li>generators and iterators
157 <li>the <code>let</code> keyword
158 <li>destructuring assignment
159 <li>array comprehensions
160 <li>expression closures
161 <li>generator expressions
162 </ul>
163 Use the new <code>--js-version</code> option to enable these features.
164 </li>
165 </ul>
166 <p>
167 The GCC C++ compiler (<code>g++</code>) is now required to compile
168 JSCoverage. (Previously, only the C compiler was needed.)
169 </p>
