  1. Renamed the top level directory 'public' to 'include'. committed Sep 2, 2008
    Added option 'env' to the SCons build scripts to support overriding the ENV part of the build environment.  This is mostly to support Windows builds in cases where SCons cannot find the correct paths to the Windows SDK, as these paths cannot be passed through shell environment variables.
    Enabled "Buffer Security Check" on for the Windows SCons build and added the linker option /OPT:ICF as an optimization.
    Added the V8 benchmark suite to the repository.

  1. Reverted unsafe change to code generator. committed Sep 1, 2008
  2. Included mjsunit JavaScript test suite and C++ unit tests. committed Sep 1, 2008
    Changed the shell sample to not print the result of executing a script provided on the command line.
    Fixed issue when building samples on Windows using a shared V8 library.  Added visibility option on Linux build which makes the generated library 18% smaller.
    Changed build system to accept multiple build modes in one build and generate separate objects, libraries and executables for each mode.
    Removed deferred negation optimization (a * -b => -(a * b)) since this visibly changes operand conversion order.
    Improved parsing performance by introducing stack guard in preparsing.  Without a stack guard preparsing always bails out with stack overflow.
    Changed shell sample to take flags directly from the command-line. Added API call that implements this.
    Added load, quit and version functions to the shell sample so it's easier to run benchmarks and tests.
    Fixed issue with building samples and cctests on 64-bit machines.
    Fixed bug in the runtime system where the prototype chain was not always searched for a setter when setting a property that does not exist locally.

    Extended the shell sample with a --runtime-flags option.
    Added Visual Studio project files for the and samples.

    Cleaned up ARM version by removing top of stack caching and by introducing push/pop elimination.
    Cleaned up the way runtime functions are called to allow runtime calls with no arguments.
    Changed Windows build options to make sure that exceptions are disabled and that optimization flags are enabled.
    Added first version of Visual Studio project files.

  1. Improved performance of unary addition by avoiding runtime calls. committed Aug 6, 2008
    Fixed the handling of '>' and '<=' to use right-to-left conversion and left-to-right evaluation as specified by ECMA-262.
    Fixed a branch elimination bug on the ARM platform where incorrect code was generated because of overly aggressive branch elimination.
    Improved performance of code that repeatedly assigns the same function to the same property of different objects with the same map.
    Untangled DEBUG and ENABLE_DISASSEMBLER defines.  The disassembler no longer expects DEBUG to be defined.
    Added to serve as the basis for new platform implementations.

  1. Changed all text files to have native svn:eol-style.

    kasper.lund committed Jul 30, 2008
    Added a few samples and support for building them. The samples include a simple shell that can be used to benchmark and test V8.
    Changed V8::GetVersion to return the version as a string.
    Added source for lazily loaded scripts to snapshots and made serialization non-destructive.
    Improved ARM support by fixing the write barrier code to use aligned loads and stores and by removing premature locals optimization that relied on broken support for callee-saved registers (removed).
    Refactored the code for marking live objects during garbage collection and the code for allocating objects in paged spaces. Introduced an abstraction for the map word of a heap-allocated object and changed the memory allocator to allocate executable memory only for spaces that may contain code objects.
    Moved StringBuilder to utils.h and ScopedLock to platform.h, where they can be used by debugging and logging modules. Added thread-safe message queues for dealing with debugger events.
    Fixed the source code reported by toString for certain builtin empty functions and made sure that the prototype property of a function is enumerable.
    Improved performance of converting values to condition flags in generated code.
    Merged disassembler-{arch} files.

    Allowed aliased eval invocations by treating them as evals in the global context. This may change in the future.
    Added support for accessing the last entered context through the API and renamed Context::Current to Context::GetCurrent and Context::GetSecurityContext to Context::GetCurrentSecurityContext.
    Fixed bug in the debugger that would cause the debugger scripts to be recursively loaded and changed all disabling of interrupts to be block-structured.
    Made snapshot data read-only to allow it to be more easily shared across multiple users of V8 when linked as a shared library.

    Added propagation of stack overflow exceptions that occur while compiling nested functions.
    Improved debugger with support for recursive break points and handling of exceptions that occur in the debugger JavaScript code.
    Renamed GetInternal to GetInternalField and SetInternal to SetInternalField in the API and moved InternalFieldCount and SetInternalFieldCount from FunctionTemplate to ObjectTemplate.

    Fixed potential quadratic behavior when converting strings to numbers.
    Fixed bug where the return value from Object::SetProperty could end up
    being the property holder instead of the written value.
    Improved debugger support by allowing nested break points and by
    dealing with stack-overflows when compiling functions before setting
    break points in them.
