8     OSSP js - Mozilla JavaScript Engine
9    
10     CHANGELOG
11    
12     This is a list of all changes to OSSP js.
13    
14     Changes between 1.6.20060820 and 1.6.20070208 (2006-08-20 to 2007-02-08)
15    
16     o Upgrade build environment to GNU autoconf 2.61
17     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
18    
19     o Added jspack, an adaption of Dean Edwards JavaScript packer
20     <http://dean.edwards.name/packer/>, version 2.0.2, for use as a
21     stand-alone Unix tool under the CLI of the OSSP js JavaScript
22     engine.
23     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
24    
25     o Upgrade to JavaScript 1.6 upstream sources as of 2007-02-08.
26     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
27    
28     o Upgrade to JavaScript 1.6 upstream sources as of 2007-01-02.
29     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
30    
31     o Upgrade to JavaScript 1.6 upstream sources as of 2006-09-16.
32     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
33    
34     Changes between 1.6.20060803 and 1.6.20060820 (2006-08-03 to 2006-08-20)
35    
36     o Add support for UTF-8 C strings in the API and internally by
37     adding a --with-utf8 build-time options which builds the code
38     with JS_C_STRINGS_ARE_UTF8.
39     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
40    
41     o Upgrade to upstream sources as of 2006-08-20.
42     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
43    
44     Changes between 1.6.20060731 and 1.6.20060803 (2006-07-31 to 2006-08-03)
45    
46     o Add optional Dynamic Shared Object (DSO) support (see src/jsdso.[ch]).
47     This comes in two flavors:
48    
49     1. Provide two public C API functions...
50     JSBool JS_DSOLoad (JSContext *cx, int *id, const char *filename);
51     JSBool JS_DSOUnload (JSContext *cx, int id);
52     ...as an ultra-thin wrapper around the POSIX dlopen(3) API. It
53     especially mimics the BSD RTLD behaviour of calling pre-defined
54     functions (mandatory "js_DSO_load" and optional "js_DSO_unload")
55     inside the DSO after/before the dlopen/dlclose calls. This
56     allows the DSOs to perform their init/shutdown actions.
57    
58     2. Provide a small JavaScript global object "DSO" which binds
59     the two public DSO C API functions into the JavaScript language
60     as "DSO.load" and "DSO.unload". The "DSO" object can be created
61     by the friend C API function js_InitDSOClass(). This function is
62     used by the command-linne interface "js" by default.
63    
64     As a result the OSSP Mozilla JavaScript engine is now able to
65     dynamically load C extensions similar to what other programming
66     languages provide since a longer time.
67     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
68    
69     o Be more clean and replace weak "#if JS_HAS_FILE_OBJECT" constructs
70     with the stronger "#if defined(JS_HAS_FILE_OBJECT) && (JS_HAS_FILE_OBJECT - 0)"
71     as the JS_HAS_FILE_OBJECT can be not defined at all (in contrast to
72     other JS_HAS_XXXX defines which are all listed in src/jsconfig.h)
73     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
74    
75     o Fix a bunch of compiler warnings.
76     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
77    
78     o Change from -O2 to -O0 and without -Wshadow under --enable-debug.
79     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
80    
81     Changes between 1.6.20060730 and 1.6.20060731 (2006-07-30 to 2006-07-31)
82    
83     o Fix "make distclean": src/perlconnect/Makefile.PL is always generated
84     and hence has to be always deleted.
85     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
86    
87     o Fix "devtool dist" command: "make man" does not exist.
88     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
89    
90     o Fix "make install": the executable "js" was not installed via GNU
91     libtool and this way under --enable-shared the wrapper script was
92     installed only.
93     [Alfred Reibenschuh <alfred.reibenschuh@it-austria.com>]
94    
95     o Add a src/perlconnect/MANIFEST file to make ExtUtils::MakeMaker more happy.
96     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
97    
98     o Fix "make install": js-config.1 was not installed.
99     [Alfred Reibenschuh <alfred.reibenschuh@it-austria.com>]
100    
101     o Use Autoconf macros AC_CANONICAL_BUILD and AC_CANONICAL_HOST to
102     make sure that the host identification is really available.
103     [Alfred Reibenschuh <alfred.reibenschuh@it-austria.com>]
104    
105     o Upgrade to upstream sources as of 2006-07-31.
106     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
107    
108     Changes between 1.6.20060729 and 1.6.20060730 (2006-07-29 to 2006-07-30)
109    
110     o Add support for Windows CygWin and MinGW environments.
111     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>,
112     Andrew Vajoczki <vajoczki@yahoo.com>]
113    
114     o Upgrade to upstream sources as of 2006-07-30.
115     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
116    
117     Changes between 1.6.20060724 and 1.6.20060729 (2006-07-24 to 2006-07-29)
118    
119     o Upgrade to upstream sources as of 2006-07-29.
120     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
121    
122     o Changed GNU libtool shared library versioning from 0:0 to 1:6.
123     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>,
124     Alfred Reibenschuh <alfred.reibenschuh@it-austria.com>]
125    
126     o Increase portability by gracefully downgrading the stat(2) use of
127     st_birthtime to st_birthtimensec or even st_ctime.
128     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>,
129     Andrew Vajoczki <vajoczki@yahoo.com>]
130    
131     o Apply a few more upstream fixes to jsfile.c.
132     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
133    
134     Changes between 1.6.20060722 and 1.6.20060724 (2006-07-22 to 2006-07-24)
135    
136     o Apply multiple code cleanups and bugfixes.
137     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
138    
139     o Move definitions of XP_UNIX and EXPORT_JS_API back from jstypes.h
140     to configure.ac (and this way the command-line) to not break the
141     use of jstypes.h as a regular API header in JS based applications.
142     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
143    
144     o Consistently mark all OSSP bugfixes with a "/* BUGFIX */" tag on
145     the "#ifdef OSSP" line. This way one can more easily see what
146     are specific OSSP specific changes what should be taken over by
147     upstream vendor.
148     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
149    
150     o Fix an incorrect argument type bug in jsfile.c related to a call to
151     js_InflateString(). A "size_t *" has to be passed, not a "size_t".
152     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
153    
154     o Upgrade from (the Mozilla Firefox 1.5 pinned version) SpiderMonkey
155     1.6.20060722 to the (SPIDERMONKEY_1_6_0_BRANCH based) 1.6.20060724
156     upstream version.
157     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
158    
159     o Added jslint (see http://www.jslint.com/) together with some
160     home-brewn option parser. The result is installed as
161     a stand-alone "jslint" program.
162     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
163    
164     o Install all src/js*.h headers during "make install" to allow
165     applications to at least optionally poke around in the internals.
166     This also allows an application to call js_InitFileClass() from
167     <jsfile.h> without us having to really call this function in the
168     standard API function JS_InitStandardClasses().
169     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
170    
171     o Change the default of the --with-file/--without from --without-file
172     to --with-file (enable the File object by default), but activate
173     it only in the CLI (where it doesn't hurt and where it is actually
174     really required to get something useful running there in practice)
175     but explicitly _NOT_ in JS_InitStandardClasses() (as this is
176     what would hurt the security in applications which assume that
177     JS_InitStandardClasses() initialized only really the standard
178     classes).
179     [Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com>]
180    
181     Changes between *GENESIS* and 1.6.20060722 (2006-06-XX to 2006-07-22)
182    
183     o Initial OSSP js distribution of Mozilla JavaScript 1.6 as of 2006-07-22.
