9         * tests/access-binary-trees.js: Added.
10         * tests/access-nsieve.js: Added.
11         * tests/bitops-nsieve-bits.js: Added.

20         * TODO: Updated to note areas that are now well-covered.
21         
22         - Change the tests and the driver to avoid leaving large object
23         graphs hanging around, since that throws off the subsequent tests.

36         
37         - Rebalance test complexity.
38         
39         Scaled all the tests so they take 400-600ms on a reasonably normal user setup:
40         
41         Internet Explorer 7, Window XP, Dell Latitude D810 with a 2.13GHz Pentium M
42
43         However, for some tests, IE7 was a huge outlier compared to other
44         major browsers. For those tests, I used Firefox 2.0.0.8 on the
45         same OS and hardware as a normalization basis.
46         
47         * tests/3d-morph.js:

96         generates tagcloud HTML markup based on the data.

121         - New JavaScript benchmark
122         http://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15515
123         
124         A start on a new JavaScript benchmark, with standalone and
125         browser-hosted drivers.
126         
127         The test content is still incomplete and the drivers could use
128         some more features but there is enough here to make a good start.
129         
130         The drivers compute a 95% confidence interval on the mean for the
131         whole test, each category, and each individual test to make it
132         easier to tell whether differences are statistically
133         significant. The confidence interval can be narrowed by running
134         the test more times.
135         
136         * TODO: Added. Remaining things that need to be done.
137         * sunspider: Added. Perl script that acts as the standalone test driver.

139         of standalone test driver.

141         analysis code.

147         tests.

149         tests.
150         * tests/LIST: Added. List of tests to use.
151         * tests/bitops-3bit-bits-in-byte.js: Added. Some initial test content.
