22         - rebalance new tests
23         
24         Scaled the new tests so they take 400-600ms on a reasonably normal user setup:
25         
26         Internet Explorer 7, Window XP, Dell Latitude D810 with a 2.13GHz Pentium M
27
28         This balances them with the existing tests.

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

65
66         * TODO: Updated to note areas that are now well-covered.
67         
68         - Change the tests and the driver to avoid leaving large object
69         graphs hanging around, since that throws off the subsequent tests.

83         - Rebalance test complexity.
84         
85         Scaled all the tests so they take 400-600ms on a reasonably normal user setup:
86         
87         Internet Explorer 7, Window XP, Dell Latitude D810 with a 2.13GHz Pentium M
88
89         However, for some tests, IE7 was a huge outlier compared to other
90         major browsers. For those tests, I used Firefox 2.0.0.8 on the
91         same OS and hardware as a normalization basis.

140         * tests/string-base64.js: Added. Does base64 encoding and decoding.
141         * tests/string-tagcloud.js: Added. Parses a JSON string and
142         generates tagcloud HTML markup based on the data.        
143         * tests/string-unpack-code.js: Added. Unpack compressed versions of

167         - New JavaScript benchmark
168         http://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15515
169         
170         A start on a new JavaScript benchmark, with standalone and
171         browser-hosted drivers.
172         
173         The test content is still incomplete and the drivers could use
174         some more features but there is enough here to make a good start.
175         
176         The drivers compute a 95% confidence interval on the mean for the
177         whole test, each category, and each individual test to make it
178         easier to tell whether differences are statistically
179         significant. The confidence interval can be narrowed by running
180         the test more times.
181         
182         * TODO: Added. Remaining things that need to be done.
183         * sunspider: Added. Perl script that acts as the standalone test driver.

185         of standalone test driver.

187         analysis code.

193         tests.

195         tests.
196         * tests/LIST: Added. List of tests to use.
197         * tests/bitops-3bit-bits-in-byte.js: Added. Some initial test content.
