gjs 1.47.0

About gjs

GNOME JavaScript/Spidermonkey bindings


- Backwards-incompatible change: we have changed the way certain JavaScript
  values are marshalled into GObject introspection 32 or 64-bit signed integer
  values, to match the ECMA standard. Here is the relevant section of the
  Notable differences between the old and new behaviour are:

  * Floating-point numbers ending in 0.5 are rounded differently when
    marshalled into 32 or 64-bit signed integers. Previously they were
    rounded to floor(x + 0.5), now they are rounded to
    signum(x) * floor(abs(x)) as per the ECMA standard:
    Note that previously, GJS rounded according to the standard when
    converting to *unsigned* integers!

  * Objects whose number value is NaN (e.g, arrays of strings), would
    previously fail to convert, throwing a TypeError. Now they convert to
    0 when marshalled into 32 or 64-bit signed integers.

  Note that the new behaviour is the behaviour you got all along when using
  pure JavaScript, without any GObject introspection:

  gjs> let a = new Int32Array(2);
  gjs> a[0] = 10.5;
  gjs> a[1] = ['this', 'is', 'fine'];
  gjs> a[0]
  gjs> a[1]

- Backwards-incompatible change: we have changed the way gjs-console interprets
  command-line arguments. Previously there was a heuristic to try to decide
  whether "--help" given on the command line was meant for GJS itself or for a
  script being launched. This did not work in some cases, for example:

  $ gjs -c 'if (ARGV.indexOf("--help") == -1) throw "ugh"' --help

  would print the GJS help.

  Now, all arguments meant for GJS itself must come _before_ the name of the
  script to execute or any script given with a "-c" argument. Any arguments
  _after_ the filename or script are passed on to the script. This is the way
  that Python handles its command line arguments as well.

  If you previously relied on any -I arguments after your script being added to
  the search path, then you should either reorder those arguments, use GJS_PATH,
  or handle -I inside your script, adding paths to imports.searchPath manually.

  In order to ease the pain of migration, GJS will continue to take those
  arguments into account for the time being, while still passing them on to the
  script. A warning will be logged if you are using the deprecated behaviour.
