17 siliconforks 597 <h3><a name="20100923">September 23, 2010 - JSCoverage 0.5.1</a></h3>
18     <p>
19     JSCoverage 0.5.1 is available for <a href="http://siliconforks.com/jscoverage/download.html">download</a>.
20     </p>
21     <p>
22     This release contains several bug fixes and improvements:
23     </p>
24     <ul class="list">
25     <li>
26     Probably the largest change is in the documentation: the manual no
27     longer recommends using <code>file:</code> URLs.
28     It is recommended that an HTTP server be used instead.
29     (See the <a href="manual.html">manual</a> for details.)
30     The JSCoverage user interface now displays a warning when used with
31     <code>file:</code> URLs.
32     </li>
33     <li>
34     The <code>--verbose</code> option to <code>jscoverage</code> now
35     produces better output.
36     </li>
37     <li>
38     Report loading is now faster (thanks to Klaus).
39     </li>
40     <li>
41     Some bugs involving augmented object prototypes were fixed.
42     </li>
43     <li>
44     JavaScript instrumentation was improved to work better in non-browser
45     environments.
46     </li>
47     <li>
48     Some cases where permission errors were occurring in inverted mode were
49     fixed (thanks to tn).
50     </li>
51     <li>
52     Previously, if <code>jscoverage-server</code> was started with the
53     option <code>--ip-address=<var>A</var></code>, where <var>A</var> was a
54     specific IP address, it was impossible to shut it down with
55     <code>jscoverage-server --shutdown</code>.
56     This should be possible now by running
57     <code>jscoverage-server --shutdown --ip-address=<var>A</var></code>
58     from the same machine.
59     </li>
60     <li>
61     The test suite has been made more robust.
62     </li>
63     </ul>
64    
65 siliconforks 567 <h3><a name="20100426">April 26, 2010 - New blog</a></h3>
66     <p>
67     If you would like to see some case studies showing how to use JSCoverage in practice, take a look at the new <a href="http://blog.siliconforks.com/">blog</a>.
68     This week there will be a series of articles about using JSCoverage with various JavaScript testing frameworks.
69 siliconforks 568 The <a href="http://blog.siliconforks.com/2010/04/26/jscoverage-scriptaculous/">first article</a> looks at using JSCoverage with the <a href="http://script.aculo.us">script.aculo.us</a> test suite.

72 siliconforks 561 <h3><a name="20100424">April 24, 2010 - JSCoverage 0.5</a></h3>
73 siliconforks 432 <p>
74     JSCoverage 0.5 is available for <a href="http://siliconforks.com/jscoverage/download.html">download</a>.
75     </p>
76     <p>
77 siliconforks 487 This release contains a number of new features and bug fixes:
78 siliconforks 432 </p>
79     <ul class="list">
80     <li>
81 siliconforks 497 A new mode of operation, called "window mode", allows you to run code in a new browser window (or tab).
82     </li>
83     <li>
84 siliconforks 503 Code coverage statistics can now be generated for applications based on
85     the Mozilla platform using the <code>--mozilla</code> option (thanks to
86     Murali Nandigama for help creating this).
87     </li>
88     <li>
89 siliconforks 432 The method used to calculate overall percentage code coverage for all
90     files has changed. Previously, the calculation was done using an
91     unweighted average: each file's percentage code coverage contributed
92     equally to the total, regardless of the number of lines of code in the
93     file. Now, the calculation is done using a weighted average. This
94     fixes
95 siliconforks 435 <a href="http://siliconforks.com/jscoverage/bugs/6">bug #6</a> (thanks to
96 siliconforks 432 Liu Cougar).
97     </li>
98 siliconforks 433 <li>
99     Contiguous lines in the "Missing" column are now grouped together (thanks to
100     Liu Cougar).
101     </li>
102 siliconforks 435 <li>
103 siliconforks 487 The "Source" tab is no longer empty when code being tested throws an
104     uncaught exception
105     (fixing <a href="http://siliconforks.com/jscoverage/bugs/5">bug #5</a>)
106 siliconforks 435 </li>
107 siliconforks 487 <li>
108     Previously, certain uses of the <code>new</code> operator were
109     instrumented incorrectly; this has now been fixed
110     (thanks to Guillaume Lung).
111     </li>
112     <li>
113     The <code>jscoverage-server</code> program now allows more characters in
114     URLs (thanks to Guillaume Lung).
115     </li>
116     <li>
117     The <code>jscoverage-server</code> program now handles HTTP headers with
118     empty values (thanks to Velo).
119     </li>
120     <li>
121     The <code>jscoverage</code> program now refuses to instrument code which
122     has already been instrumented (thanks to Velo).
123     </li>
124     <li>
125     URLs containing spaces now work correctly (thanks to Igor Papkov).
126     </li>
127     <li>
128     Previously, on Windows, the <code>jscoverage</code> program
129     was unable to instrument a directory in a drive root; this has now been
130     fixed.
131     </li>
132     <li>
133 siliconforks 552 Encoded URLs are now handled better in the query string.
134     </li>
135     <li>
136 siliconforks 487 A limitation of 65,535 lines per file and 65,535 characters per line has
137     been removed.
138     </li>
139     <li>
140 siliconforks 552 Floating-point numbers are now handled with improved precision.
141 siliconforks 487 </li>
142     <li>
143     The <code>jscoverage-server</code> program can no longer bind to the same port multiple times on Windows.
144     </li>
145     <li>
146     Some bugs in <code>jscoverage-server</code>'s handling of the "chunked"
147     Transfer-Encoding have been fixed.
148     </li>
149 siliconforks 488 <li>
150     Compilation under Cygwin now uses the <code>-mno-cygwin</code> flag.
151     </li>
152 siliconforks 490 <li>
153     The wire format used for submitting coverage reports for storage by
154     <code>jscoverage-server</code> has changed. (This change will not have
155     any visible effects for most users; it will only be of interest to those
156     who have written code which parses that format.)
157     </li>
158 siliconforks 432 </ul>
159    
160 siliconforks 415 <h3><a name="20081211">December 11, 2008 - JSCoverage 0.4</a></h3>
161 siliconforks 231 <p>
162     JSCoverage 0.4 is available for <a href="http://siliconforks.com/jscoverage/download.html">download</a>.
163     </p>
164     <p>
165     This release includes many new features:
166     </p>
167     <ul class="list">
168     <li>
169     The new <code>jscoverage-server</code> program is provided as an
170     alternative to the <code>jscoverage</code> program. The
171     <code>jscoverage-server</code> program is a simple HTTP server which
172     instruments JavaScript code as it is served; this allows you to execute
173     JavaScript and gather code coverage statistics without a preliminary
174     step of creating instrumented code. The <code>jscoverage-server</code>
175     program can either serve files directly from the filesystem or run as a
176     proxy server (with the <code>--proxy</code> option), instrumenting
177     JavaScript provided by another web server.
178     <li>
179     Using <code>jscoverage-server</code>, coverage reports can now be stored
180     to the filesystem.
181     </li>
182     <li>
183     JSCoverage now recognizes special JavaScript comments which specify that
184     certain lines of code should be ignored in coverage reports.
185     </li>
186     <li>
187     The new <code>--encoding</code> option provides better support for
188     different character encodings.
189     </li>
190     <li>
191     The JSCoverage user interface is now faster and more responsive.
192     </li>
193     <li>
194     The new <code>--no-highlight</code> option can be used to disable syntax
195     highlighting (giving better performance for large JavaScript files).
196     </li>
197 siliconforks 285 <li>
198     The build system has been modified so that <code>make install</code>
199     only installs the <code>jscoverage</code> and
200     <code>jscoverage-server</code> executables and their manual pages.
201     (Previous versions installed SpiderMonkey library and executable files,
202     which could conflict with other versions of SpiderMonkey installed on
203     your system.)
204     </li>
205 siliconforks 368 <li>
206     JSCoverage now supports several features beyond those found in the
207     <cite>ECMAScript Language Specification</cite>, including the following:
208     <ul class="list">
209     <li>getters and setters
210     <li><code>for each</code> loops
211     <li>generators and iterators
212     <li>the <code>let</code> keyword
213     <li>destructuring assignment
214     <li>array comprehensions
215     <li>expression closures
216     <li>generator expressions
217 siliconforks 231 </ul>
218 siliconforks 368 Use the new <code>--js-version</code> option to enable these features.
219     </li>
220     </ul>
221 siliconforks 393 <p>
222     The GCC C++ compiler (<code>g++</code>) is now required to compile
223     JSCoverage. (Previously, only the C compiler was needed.)
224     </p>
225 siliconforks 419 <p>
