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).
38 </li>
39 <li>
40 Fixed a bug which resulted in an empty "Source" tab when code being
41 tested threw an uncaught exception
42 (<a href="http://siliconforks.com/jscoverage/bugs/5">bug #5</a>).
43 </li>
44 </ul>

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