5         * resources/sunspider-analyze-results.js: Do the error range

8         
9         * sunspider: Print results in a way that will be friendlier to the

51         - rebalance new tests

55         Internet Explorer 7, Window XP, Dell Latitude D810 with a 2.13GHz Pentium M

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

95         * TODO: Updated to note areas that are now well-covered.
96         
97         - Change the tests and the driver to avoid leaving large object
98         graphs hanging around, since that throws off the subsequent tests.

112         - Rebalance test complexity.
113         
114         Scaled all the tests so they take 400-600ms on a reasonably normal user setup:
115         
116         Internet Explorer 7, Window XP, Dell Latitude D810 with a 2.13GHz Pentium M
117
118         However, for some tests, IE7 was a huge outlier compared to other
119         major browsers. For those tests, I used Firefox 2.0.0.8 on the
120         same OS and hardware as a normalization basis.

167         Add some string test cases.
168
169         * tests/string-base64.js: Added. Does base64 encoding and decoding.
170         * tests/string-tagcloud.js: Added. Parses a JSON string and
171         generates tagcloud HTML markup based on the data.        
172         * tests/string-unpack-code.js: Added. Unpack compressed versions of
173         four of the most popular JavaScript libraries.

196         - New JavaScript benchmark
197         http://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15515
198         
199         A start on a new JavaScript benchmark, with standalone and
200         browser-hosted drivers.
201         
202         The test content is still incomplete and the drivers could use
203         some more features but there is enough here to make a good start.
204         
205         The drivers compute a 95% confidence interval on the mean for the
206         whole test, each category, and each individual test to make it
207         easier to tell whether differences are statistically
208         significant. The confidence interval can be narrowed by running
209         the test more times.
210         
211         * TODO: Added. Remaining things that need to be done.
212         * sunspider: Added. Perl script that acts as the standalone test driver.

214         of standalone test driver.
215         * resources/sunspider-analyze-results.js: Added. JavaScript statistical
216         analysis code.

221         * hosted/sunspider-results.html: Added. Results page for browser-hosted
222         tests.
223         * hosted/sunspider-record-result.js: Added. Helper file for browser-hosted
224         tests.
225         * tests/LIST: Added. List of tests to use.
226         * tests/bitops-3bit-bits-in-byte.js: Added. Some initial test content.
