15         - Add more new tests, mostly from the computer language shootout. Not normalized yet.

19         * tests/access-binary-trees.js: Added.
20         * tests/access-nsieve.js: Added.

30         * TODO: Updated to note areas that are now well-covered.
31         
32         - Change the tests and the driver to avoid leaving large object
33         graphs hanging around, since that throws off the subsequent tests.

47         - Rebalance test complexity.
48         
49         Scaled all the tests so they take 400-600ms on a reasonably normal user setup:
50         
51         Internet Explorer 7, Window XP, Dell Latitude D810 with a 2.13GHz Pentium M
52
53         However, for some tests, IE7 was a huge outlier compared to other
54         major browsers. For those tests, I used Firefox 2.0.0.8 on the
55         same OS and hardware as a normalization basis.

105         * tests/string-tagcloud.js: Added. Parses a JSON string and
106         generates tagcloud HTML markup based on the data.

131         - New JavaScript benchmark
132         http://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15515
133         
134         A start on a new JavaScript benchmark, with standalone and
135         browser-hosted drivers.
136         
137         The test content is still incomplete and the drivers could use
138         some more features but there is enough here to make a good start.
139         
140         The drivers compute a 95% confidence interval on the mean for the
141         whole test, each category, and each individual test to make it
142         easier to tell whether differences are statistically
143         significant. The confidence interval can be narrowed by running
144         the test more times.
145         
146         * TODO: Added. Remaining things that need to be done.
147         * sunspider: Added. Perl script that acts as the standalone test driver.

149         of standalone test driver.

151         analysis code.

157         tests.

159         tests.
160         * tests/LIST: Added. List of tests to use.
161         * tests/bitops-3bit-bits-in-byte.js: Added. Some initial test content.
