Bugfix release: r04

This is a bugfix release that also contains some improvements to our test coverage.


  • JSHint now makes sure that null references are not subscripted within typeof and delete operators.

  • JSHint now recognizes defensive semicolon technique:

    ; (function () { / ... / }());

    But still warns in cases like this:

    ; function () {}
  • Fixed an issue with latedef not working for a specific use of variable hoisting.

  • Fixed an intermittent bug with JSHint failing with an exception instead of returning a Too Many errors message.

  • Fixed incorrect comments in JSC wrapper.

  • Fixed a bug with JSC wrapper not parsing options with spaces correctly.

Thanks to Mike Pennisi and Dan Vanderkam.
