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