Re: [webkit-dev] High web process CPU usage

2016-07-20 Thread Benjamin Poulain

I tried locally with ToT but I cannot reproduce.
I load huffingtonpost.com in a tab->it takes an (in)decent amount of 
CPU. Then I switch to an about:blank tab->the CPU time goes back to zero.


The Idle Wake Ups you are getting are pretty crazy too.

Can you please file a bug for this?
Next time you see the issue, Sample the faulty process. We may find 
something interesting in there.

Hi all,

In the Safari shipped with the latest macOS Sierra beta, as well as
Safari Tech Preview 9, there's an odd CPU usage issue with individual
tab's web processes.

For example, if one navigates to huffingtonpost.com
, Activity Monitor will show the tab web
process continually using 5-10% of CPU, along with hundreds of idle
wake-ups. Even more concerning, this continues to happen with
the huffingtonpost.com  web process even if
one picks another tab in the window.

Here's a screenshot from Activity Monitor; one Safari window is open. It
has two tabs: polymail.io ,
and about:blank. about:blank is the one currently in focus.


To investigate, I opened Web Inspector and recorded the JS/event
timeline. I found that there were timers firing quite frequently.

Now, I know Safari/WebKit /should/ be throttling timers of background
tabs *anyway*, but I figured I'd `clearInterval` all the timers to see
if that reduces the CPU usage. Nope (even though I verified no timers
are firing any longer after clearing all the intervals — no activity on
the timeline whatsoever; CPU usage and idle wake ups still way too high).

This doesn't happen with *every* page, but it happens with most that are
reasonably complex (can't tell what the trigger is yet; perhaps the use
of JavaScript timers?)

The previous Sierra beta's Safari and Tech Preview 8 both showed this
problem. I don't know whether it goes further back.

Any ideas what's going on? Is this 'expected behavior' and I'm missing
something obvious?

Thanks,
Chris

Let's turn this on. :)

I thought we could remove all the LLVM goo from the CMake build system,
but I see there is some code to support LLVM for the EFL port on
AArch64. (For the GTK port, FTL is only supported on x86_64).

Do we want to continue to support FTL on AArch64 using LLVM, or do we
want to just turn off FTL on that platform until B3 is ready? It's
currently disabled by default, so I don't see much value in keeping it
around.


B3 on AArch64 is passing the tests since last Friday but it does not yet 
generate great assembly.


It is likely there are still bugs, just not covered by the tests. Please 
tell me if you find anything suspicious on ARM.

Re: [webkit-dev] TestWebKitAPI and CMake

2015-08-08 Thread Benjamin Poulain

On 8/7/15 4:59 PM, Alex Christensen wrote:

Right now, the Mac and Windows ports have TestWebKitAPI built as a single 
executable.  Tools/TestWebKitAPI/CMakeLists.txt currently creates many 
executables to test things in groups.  I want to make the Windows port build 
everything with CMake at the beginning of next week, but I’m not sure how to 
proceed and build TestWebKitAPI.  I see 3 options:

1) Change the GTK and EFL ports to build and run one TestWebKitAPI executable.
2) Change the Windows and maybe eventually Mac ports to build many 
TestWebKitAPI executables (TestWTF, TestJavaScriptCore, etc.).  It would be 
easiest for me if this were done after removing the Visual Studio build system.
3) Maintain different CMake builds of TestWebKitAPI building one or many 
executables.  This would probably be the least invasive option.

I consider each option to have about equal merit, but I think I need input from 
the GTK and EFL maintainers before proceeding.  Either way, there would be 
slight differences between the ports because of things like WebKit2 not 
existing on Windows right now, so I suggest the third option.


I have the feeling [2] may be the most useful for the project.

Having one binary per test suite seems better to parralelize (some of) 
them. It may also reduce flakiness due the reduced dependencies.

Hello,

I would like to listen what do you think to support

This feature is to execute web content through registered custom protocol.

this feature,

script
navigator.registerProtocolHandler(mailto,
  https://mail.naver.com/;,
  Web Mail);
/script

html
head
titleWeb Protocol Handler Sample - Test/title
/head
body
pSend an email : a href=mailto://;this !/a/p

Besides this feature has been supported by Mozilla and Chromium (From 
Mozilla 3.0, Chromium 13).
  - 
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Navigator/registerProtocolHandler

  - https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Web-based_protocol_handlers

The feature is included in the W3C recommendation 28 released on Oct. 
2014.

  - W3C spec : http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/webappapis.html#custom-handlers

IIRC, some WebKit1 ports supported this feature though, those ports 
were deprecated. Now WebKit port supports this feature no more.


There is a very old bug to support this feature though, it wasn't 
maintained so far. Recently I updated it based on latest WebKit.

- https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92749

Feel free to give me any feedback about this feature.

Re: [webkit-dev] Proposal: Remove TextureMapperImageBuffer

It seems undesirable to use a completely different stack for testing and

Wouldn't it be possible to use Mesa on the EFL bots?

A slight update on this issue. It's already been attempted here:

The issue is that WebKitEFL is using the TextureMapperImageBuffer to
run tests on their bots, because the EFL bots don't support OpenGL
tests. My suggestion is that we disable accelerated compositing
completely for WebKitEFL (if possible) and skip those tests. Once the
bots have the ability to run tests that use OpenGL, we can re-enable
that code path for WebKitEFL.

What do you think about having a version of “Done” for fully

have some bugs to fix. I’d assume that would be past the prototyping
phase at this point, but not quite Done, given that it’s still
prefixed.


If there are only minor bugs left, my first preference would be to 
unprefix. :)


If the bugs are not so minor, I think In Development would be okay.

You can also make up your own status string for now, I'll triage them at 
some point :)


All of this is really about documentation. Add as much comments as you 
need in comment to explain the state of the feature.

[webkit-dev] Filling the features.json files

Hi WebKit,

The two features.json files are in the tree (WebCore/features.json and 
JavaScriptCore/features.json). The style checker now checks the basic 
structure of the files.


I have added some basic things in there to show the basic structure. I 
would like help setting up those lists.


If you have worked on a feature in the last 12 months, and you want to 
give it the visibility it deserves, please add it to features.json.


An other type of feature that would be useful for those files are 
features that are not as popular as they should (image-set, srcset, 
sticky-positioning, etc).


The only mandatory fields are name and status.

Committers can edit those files without reviews. Other contributors can 
make patches and ping me for review.

And here’s a document on Github that’s clearer than that email:

This proposal somehow went viral:

http://www.infoworld.com/article/2901436/internet/faster-web-page-loading-without-javascript.html

and lots more, in different languages around the world. If you search
“html6” on Twitter, you’ll see. There are hundreds or thousands of
shares, upvotes, comments, etc.

So it looks like a lot of people want something like this to happen.  I
believe it represents web developers’ dissatisfaction in having to use
these Javascript frameworks to do something basic that should have been
a part of the HTML spec, that is, dynamic loading of content.  I put
this proposal out there as a result of my own frustrations with these
frameworks being constantly redesigned.

I’m checking if there’s any interest from the Webkit team on this?  I’m
trying to plan the next steps and probably wouldn’t proceed without at
least some sort of interest or guidance from the browser vendors.
  (maybe this is technically impossible, etc..) Next steps would
probably include working on a full spec, and possibly implementation.  I
have built WebKit nightly before, but haven’t modified any of its code,
and I suspect something like this would be way beyond me time-wise to
fully implement myself, but if there’s interest, I could possibly figure
out some options.

Anyways do let me know of any interest.

[webkit-dev] Request for feedback: Status page for WebKit

2015-03-22 Thread Benjamin Poulain
Hi ,

For those who were not at that session at the contributor meeting: some
web developers have asked for a better way to follow what is being done
in WebKit without having to follow every WebKit engineers on Twitter.

On our end, having more visibility on what is enabled in Nightly could
help getting more feedback and bug reports.

Google maintains a status page for the features enabled in chrome
(https://www.chromestatus.com/features) and it seems to be useful. We
could try doing something similar for WebKit.

Since Webkit's engineering is distributed with all the ports and various
prototypes, the idea would be to let every contributor maintain the
status page. We would have JSON files in the tree describing features
and their states, and webkit.org would pull that information from the
repository to publish that in a nicer way.

My current plan is to have 2 files, named features.json, with the
information about our features. The files would be in
Source/JavaScriptCore/features.json and Source/WebCore/features.json.

From the feedback at the contributor meeting, I drafted the following
format for the files: http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/Feature%20Status
I am still not sure how to best format the list of releases where a
feature has shipped for the first time. In the draft, I used a list of
strings with a custom format.

Please have a look. Send me your feedback. If everyone still think it is
a good idea in a week, I'll start working toward putting something like
that in the tree.

There are a few reasons for this:

That's an awesome project. That's gonna be a lot of work.

Between WebCore and WebKit, we use interfaces with pure virtual functions that

I don’t think we need a model like the WebCore/WebKit interface. WTF is 
essentially like the proposed Platform library already, and it just exposes 
normal C++ headers and implementation files. I think the main benefit here is 
cleaning up the layering, as opposed to adding more abstraction. In fact, you 
could sort of think of WTF and Platform as logically the same library, with WTF 
being only the parts needed by JavaScriptCore, plus things that are logically 
at the same level (so basically non-GUI and no networking code).

This almost makes me want to suggest a jokey name for Platform. I can’t off the 
top of my head think of a good expansion of OMG, though. Or BBQ.


Have you seen the clean interface of ResourceHandle? :)

The client layers tend to get cleaner over time while the lower layers 
tends to become messier.

That code looks straightforward, the maintenance cost is likely low. We
just really need a test bot to run that code.

I suggest we wait until we have a ARMv7 perf bot and re-evaluate
NEON_INTRINSICS.

Re: [webkit-dev] Running W3C tests using wptserve

2015-01-31 Thread Benjamin Poulain

Hi Youenn,

Thanks for working on this.

How do we run the imported tests? Do we just use run-webkit-test passing 
'imported/w3c'?
Is there a way to get the percentage of W3C tests that succeed? It would 
be useful to have a report per directory so that we improve it over time 
until we reach 100%.

Hi all,

W3C wptserve server is now used to serve all tests under

Currently, only two tests are run within that folder:
- web-platform-tests/domparsing/DOMParser-parseFromString-html.html
- web-platform-tests/domparsing/insert-adjacent.html

Should there be any issus with those tests, the problem may be related
to running wptserve.
The wptserve server log is dumped in the the layout-test-results folder.
Please let me know if you see any such issue, particularly on WebKit bots.

Next planned steps in that area are:
1. Update Tools/Scripts/import-w3c-tests according this new set-up
2. Migrate already imported W3C WPT tests within
LayoutTests/imported/w3c/web-platform-tests
3. Further improve the tools to make import of new tests and re-import
existing tests as easy as possible

Any suggestion welcome.

Re: [webkit-dev] WebRTC in WebKit

2015-01-28 Thread Benjamin Poulain

Getting WebRTC working on WebKitGTK sounds awesome.

I am a little concerned with the use of an abstraction layer as a 
backend. I am afraid this could lead to weird abstractions.


Typically in WebKit we try to have baseline code in C++ that handles 
everything that can be shared between ports, and platform abstractions 
for everything port and/or platform specific.


Using OpenWebRTC, there would be no abstractions and WebCore would just 
be a bridge between JavaScript and OpenWebRTC. Is that correct?


Could you explain a bit why you chose to use an abstraction layer at the 
WebRTC level instead of interfacing directly with GStreamer at the 
platform abstraction level?

Hi

Back in 2011-2012 there was some work done to implement WebRTC in WebKit
by Google and Ericsson [1]. At the time, it was only the chromium port
that had a WebRTC backend implemented (webrtc.org) and a fully testable
implementation. As of late 2014, there is an alternative WebRTC
implementation out there; OpenWebRTC [2] is an open source WebRTC
framework based on GStreamer.

This is an announcement that we are a group of people/companies that
intend to continue the work on WebRTC in WebKit.

What we would like to do is to:
* Get the WebCore interfaces up to date. Quite a lot has changed in the
WebRTC API since the code landed in WebCore. For example, the
MediaStreamTrack has taken over most of the responsibilities previously
owned by MediaStream.

* Use OpenWebRTC as a WebRTC backend on the GTK+ port. Our approach
would be to use a stable platform interface on a lower level than the
W3C API (MediaStream API and RTCPeerConnecion) and implement the API
related details in WebCore. This would allow us to let API related
objects only exist in WebCore and not having to mirror them across layers.

* Evaluate the feasibility of multiple back-end support (e.g. webrtc.org
 OpenWebRTC).

This effort will involve quite a few people, including Adam Bergkvist
(Ericsson), Alex Gouaillard (Temasys), Philippe Normand (Igalia) and
Sebastian Dröge (Centricular).

Feedback and/or help is always appreciated.

Re: [webkit-dev] Pattern for singleton classes instance getters

Hi,

I noticed that we are currently not very consistent in WebKit in the

until I updated it yesterday). e.g. memoryCache().xxx()
- Some classes are using static functions in the class 
(e.g. DatabaseProcess::shared(), PluginProcess::shared()).


As I said, I landed a patch yesterday so that the global page cache is 
now accessed via PageCache::shared() because I thought this was the 
currently preferred pattern (given it seems very common in WebKit2 code).
However, I thought I would email webkit-dev to make sure this is 
actually the case and make sure we agree on a given pattern (one way 
or another) for current and future code. We could then maybe document this

as part of our coding style.

Any feedback on this matter?

Re: [webkit-dev] Problem with a crash using JSC code

2015-01-27 Thread Benjamin Poulain
There is not formal size limit for any patch, some changes are 
inherently big.


Experience shows that big patch tends to have more hidden bugs and 
poorer code coverage. It is better to go forward by little step while 
having huge test coverage at every step.


https://bugs.webkit.org/attachment.cgi?id=245350action=review looks 
hard to split.


Maybe do a first patch with an empty shell + the bindings. You can test 
passing all kind of valid and invalid values to the API; test the 
property of the object and every function/properties, test creating 
thousands of ReadableStream objects, etc.


Then a follow up patch implementing the ReadableStream and have an other 
set of test checking the behavior?

Re: [webkit-dev] Announcing WebKit for Wayland

Hi Žan,

Thanks for announcing this project here.

Can you explain a bit why you decided to use the UIProcess directly 
inside the compositor?


I am a bit concerned about the security of this model because the 
UIProcess becomes an attack vector for the compositor. Sharing the 
memory space with the compositor would prevent aggressive sandboxing.


Great Wayland support seems like an important target for WebKit on 
Linux. Do you know what are the plans for GTK and EFL?

Hi,

now with proper formatting, Igalia is happy to announce the Wayland port

This port avoids using traditional GUI toolkits in favor of directly

multi-process architecture, the UIProcess is implemented as a shared
library and loaded by the Wayland compositor, enabling the WebProcess to
act as a direct client of the compositor while still being controlled by
the UIProcess.

EGL, the Wayland EGL platform, and OpenGL ES are used for
hardware-accelerated compositing of the rendered Web content. GLib,
Libsoup and Cairo are used under the hood.

The port serves as a good base for building systems and environments
that are mostly or completely relying on the Web platform technologies
for building the desired interface.

Overall the port is still in its early days, with some basic
functionality (e.g. functional keyboard and mouse input support) and
many other Web platform features still not supported. But with Wayland
EGL support constantly growing in graphics drivers for different GPUs,
it can already be tested on devices like the Raspberry Pi or the Jetson
TK1 development board.

In terms of supported Wayland compositors, for the moment we only
support Weston (the reference Wayland compositor implementation), which
is also used for development purposes. It's also used for running the
layout tests by again pushing WebKitTestRunner functionality into a
shared library, though all that is still in very early stages.

The code is available on GitHub. There are also short instructions for
building the dependencies and the port, and how to run it.

There's also additional repositories there (for Cairo, Weston),
containing changes that haven't yet been pushed upstream. In the
following days we'll also be providing Buildroot configurations that can
be used for cross-compiling the whole software stack for the supported
hardware.

We look forward to continuing evolving this work, enabling further
features and improving performance on the software side and adding
support for additional devices. As with all open-source projects,
contributions are welcome.

Re: [webkit-dev] size_t vs unsigned in WTF::Vector API ?

2014-11-19 Thread Benjamin Poulain

I agree with Filip and Antti.

The internal type of Vector is an orthogonal issue.

Keeping the old size_t API with the unsigned internal has caused a 
mess of types in the codebase and some confusion for contributors. We 
should fix the API and clean up our code.


There are cases were we can expect large vectors. It would be reasonable 
to have the storage type as a template argument of Vector. But in most 
cases we have a lot of very small vectors, not a small amount of large 
vectors.
We could also have a BigVector class that would be optimized for bigger 
allocations.

ArrayBuffers, or because of a use of int/unsigned in another code path.

I think that we should use size_t everywhere except for perhaps a few
key places where memory impact is critical (and of course we need
explicit checks when casting down to an unsigned). Or perhaps the rule
can be even simpler, and unsigned may never be used for indices and

Whatever we do, the clients of Vector should be consistent about what
type they use.  I'm actually fine with Vector internally using
unsigned even if the API uses size_t, but right now we have lots of
code that uses a mix of size_t and unsigned when indexing into
Vectors.  That's confusing.

If I picked one type to use for all Vector indices, it would be
unsigned rather than size_t.  Vector being limited to unsigned doesn't
imply 4GB unless you do Vectorchar.  Usually we have Vectors of
pointer-width things, which means 32GB on 64-bit systems (UINT_MAX *
sizeof(void*)).  Even in a world where we had more than 32GB of memory
to use within a single web process, I would hope that we wouldn't use
it all on a single Vector and that if we did, we would treat that one
specially for a bunch of other sensible reasons (among them being that
allocating a contiguous slab of virtual memory of that size is rather
taxing).  So, size_t would buy us almost nothing since if we had a
vector grow large enough to need it, we would be having a bad time
already.

I wonder: are there cases that anyone remembers where we have tried to
use Vector to store more than UINT_MAX things?  Another interesting
question is: What's the largest number of things that we store into
any Vector?  We could use such a metric to project how big Vectors
might get in the future.

API and the internal representation [3]
- Some reviewers have asked me to use unsigned for loop counters

- I heard from Joseph that this type mismatch is forcing us (and
other projects using WTF) to disable some build time warnings

do it

However, Alexey recently raised concerns about this change. it
doesn't strike him as the right direction. 4Gb is not much, and we
should have more of WebKit work with the right data types, not less.”.
I did not initially realize that this change was controversial, but

Re: [webkit-dev] Announcing the TyGL-WebKit port to accelerate 2D web rendering with GPU

2014-11-13 Thread Benjamin Poulain

How does TyGL perform compared to the other rasterizers?

What benchmarks do you use to guide the performance work?

On 11/12/14, 11:12 PM, Zoltan Herczeg wrote:

Hi All,

We are proud to announce the TyGL port (link:
http://github.com/szeged/TyGL) on the top of EFL-WebKit. TyGL (pronounced
as tigel) is part of WebKit and provides 2D-accelerated GPU rendering on
embedded systems. The engine is purely GPU based. It has been developed on
and tested against ARM-Mali GPU, but it is designed to work on any GPU
conforming to OpenGL ES 2.0 or higher.

The GPU involvement on future graphics is inevitable considering the pixel
growth rate of displays, but harnessing the GPU power requires a different
approach than CPU-based optimizations. 2D graphics is traditionally
software-based however, and 2D APIs are interfaces to these CPU-based
algorithms. WebKit GraphicsContext API is no different, so the key
challenge of our project was and is producing the expected output in a GPU
friendly way.

Key features:

Batching pipeline:

GPU provides the highest performance when a large number of triangles are
drawn with a single draw command without any OpenGL state changes. The
GraphicsContext API in WebKit provides draw operations for single shapes
however, which can result frequent state changes if implemented naively.
TyGL was designed to group these commands to reduce the number of draw
calls.

Automatic shader generator:

TyGL can generate complex shaders from multiple shader fragments, which
allows efficient batching but it also takes care to make them fit into the
shader cache of the GPU.

Trapezoid based path rendering:

TyGL uses trapezoid-based tesselation of shapes and the GPU renders them
with high anti-aliasing quality. We are continuously improving this part
of the engine and look forward to make use of new GPU capabilities (like
Pixel Local Storage) to squeeze more performance out of it.

No software fallback:

The whole engine is optimized for GPU without legacy software fallback.
Hence we don't need to sacrifice optimizations for compatibility. There
are enough software based 2D libraries which can be used when GPU is not
available.

TyGL is already capable of rendering many web-sites correctly, but some
features have not been implemented yet. We continue this work and we are
open to contributions from the community. Contact to us if you want more
information about the project.

Regards,
U-Szeged's web browser team.

Re: [webkit-dev] Tagged assertions...

2014-11-06 Thread Benjamin Poulain

I don't think the problem is big enough to justify ASSERT_TAG.

Why not just add FIXME with some explanations and a link to the bug number?

Benjamin

On 11/6/14 12:34 PM, Said Abou-Hallawa wrote:

When the logical expression in the ASSERT is changed, you should do the 
following:

-   ASSERT_TAG(condition, “abcde”);
+  ASSERT(new_condition);

Then the pre-build tagging tool will generate a new tag for the new assertion:

+  ASSERT(new_condition, “fghij”);

So the assertions do not get messed up with Bugzailla.

The pre-build tool runs periodically only on Bot, maybe once every day and only 
on the touched files since it was last run.  Then it commits only the changed 
files because of tagging.  This should not add much to the build process.

Both ASSERT and ASSERT_TAG should be supported.  Since the developer should 
only add ASSERT and leave the tagging for the pre-build tagging tool.

The GTK+ port supports the network process, but it's only used when

users change the default process model of epiphany to single web process
because it requires fewer resources. So, we could either integrate the

You say a single Web Process is the most efficient model for some 
applications. What is the impact of always enabling the network process on:

-CPU load?
-Memory load?
-Overall performance?

Once we know where the problems are, we should work together at reducing 
the impact. I suspect we can get the network process below 5% overhead.

I haven't measured, I was thinking mainly on the overhead of the IPC
traffic required for the network resources.


On iOS, we managed to optimize this until IPC was no longer a major 
performance concern. Our IPC should definitely improve but it is not a 
high priority for performance.


You could argue that iOS runs on very unconventional CPUs but we also 
have some old ARMv7 that are close to conventional CPU and we managed 
reasonable overhead on those too.


In my humble opinion, we should just get hard data and solve the actual 
problems (which I suspect may be memory and not IPC).

Re: [webkit-dev] Streams API

2014-11-02 Thread Benjamin Poulain
It looks like nobody has raised any concern against Streams API. We even 
got positive feedback from Anne. :)


I have two concerns:
1) You have many patches waiting for review. I think you need to get 
better communication channels with reviewers in order to iterate over 
your patches faster. It is unfortunate but getting complex patches 
reviewed in WebKit requires poking reviewers directly. Since you work on 
the network stack, I suggest asking Alexey (ap) and Pratik (psolanki) on 
IRC, they can help with reviews or suggest other reviewers.
2) Streams is a large spec and it touches platform code. Please be 
careful with stability, make more tests than reasonable and #ifdef 
everything.


I suggest the flag name ENABLE_STREAMS_API, I find ENABLE_STREAMS a 
bit too generic.


If you open a meta bug, please send the bug number to the mailing list 
for reference.


Good luck :)

Hi,

have you tried if the webkit-patch bugzilla tool (upload,
apply-attachment, apply-from-bug, ... ), the review tool,
the commit queue and EWS will work properly with the new
bugzilla version?


I did verify webkit-patch upload works.  We don't have an easy way
to test commit queue and EWS outside of the production environment.
 (That is something we want to improve going forward.)

If those are too broken to fix quickly, the plan is to roll back.


I think they are very fragile and highly rely on the generated
HTML forms. I prefer fixing these tools before updating to
breaking them and then trying to fix.


I wanted to upgrade as soon as possible to patch security issues
that were not back-ported to the version we were running.


Just out of curiosity, if we do an upgrade, why do we upgrade
to the old stable release (4.2.11), why not the latest stable
relase (4.4.6)? Is there a fundamental reason for it?


It was the quickest path to upgrade to a version where security
patches were available.

I had upgraded to 4.2.5 about a year ago, and had qualified over
90% of the website, so it was quickest to upgrade to 4.2.11 rather
than 4.4.6 (which could have introduced more compat issues with tools).


There are many good fixes in 4.4 release. If we can't upgrade
to 4.4 for some reason, it would be great to cherry-pick at
least the following changes:

It is now possible to add yourself to the CC list when uploading
an attachment and when editing an existing one. (note)
-- auto cc reviewer -
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=124047 )

Changes to the CC list no longer causes midair collisions. (note)
-- It is very annoying if you are commenting a bug, and you
have to start it again if somebody else cc-ed him/herself.
Or if you clicked force, it would remove these new cc-s.


After we upgrade to 4.2.11, I will start work on 4.4.6 (plus a way
to test the EWS and commit queue with our test environment).


And one more question: Are you planning to check-in
the new bugzilla to Websites/bugs.webkit.org
http://bugs.webkit.org/ ?


Yes.  That will be part of the upgrade.  It's split into many
individual patches (and 3 merge patches); I didn't want to
squash-merge it in case it was easier to fix a future bug based on
these changes.

My question isn’t how to debug this, though any insights would be
welcome. Instead I’m hoping to to roll JSC forward or backward to a more
stable revision somewhere near 02/2014  (in order to reduce problems
merging into WebKitGtk). It seems best to tie it to a contemporaneous
Safari release, perhaps from the safari-600.1 branch. I’m wondering if
that branch is considered always stable, and therefore safe to pull from
at an arbitrary revision. Alternatively, is there a way to discover the
revision for a given Safari release?

Thanks for any help,

Since this is such a small addition, the feature will not be behind a

Let me know if you have questions or concerns with this approach

Sounds okay to skip the feature flag for this.

As usual:
-Please make sure to add a functional implementation in a single patch.
-Please create outstanding test coverage.

What is the bug number for tracking this?

Re: [webkit-dev] SIMD support in JavaScript

2014-09-26 Thread Benjamin Poulain

Thanks for sharing your analysis on webkit-dev.

There has been a lot of criticisms about SIMD.js this year. It is great 
to read about solutions for vectorization without the problems of SIMD.js.

Recently members of the JavaScript community at Intel and Mozilla
havesuggested http://www.2ality.com/2013/12/simd-js.htmladding SIMD
types to the JavaScript language. In this email would like to share my
thoughts about this proposal and to start a technical discussion about
SIMD.js support in Webkit. I BCCed some of the authors of the proposal
to allow them to participate in this discussion.

Modern processors feature SIMD (Single Instruction Multiple Data)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SIMD instructions, which perform the same
arithmetic operation on a vector of elements. SIMD instructions are used
to accelerate compute intensive code, like image processing algorithms,
because the same calculation is applied to every pixel in the image. A
single SIMD instruction can process 4 or 8 pixels at the same time.
Compilers try to make use of SIMD instructions in an optimization that
is called vectorization.

The SIMD.js API
http://wiki.ecmascript.org/doku.php?id=strawman:simd_number adds new
types, such as float32x4, and operators that map to vector instructions
on most processors. The idea behind the proposal is that manual use of
vector instructions, just like intrinsics in C, will allow developers to
accelerate common compute-intensive JavaScript applications. The idea of
using SIMD instructions to accelerate JavaScript code is compelling
because high performance applications in JavaScript are becoming very
popular.

Before I became involved with JavaScript through my work on the FTL
project
https://www.webkit.org/blog/3362/introducing-the-webkit-ftl-jit/, I
developed the LLVM vectorizer
http://llvm.org/docs/Vectorizers.html and worked on a vectorizing
compiler for a data-parallel programming language. Based on my
experience with vectorization, I believe that the current proposal to
include SIMD types in the JavaScript language is not the right approach
to utilize SIMD instructions. In this email I argue that vector types
should not be added to the JavaScript language.

Vector instruction sets are sparse, asymmetrical, and vary in size and
features from one generation to another. For example, some Intel
processors feature 512-bit wide vector instructions
https://software.intel.com/en-us/blogs/2013/avx-512-instructions. This
means that they can process 16 floating point numbers with one
instruction. However, today’s high-end ARM processors feature 128-bit
wide vector instructions
http://www.arm.com/products/processors/technologies/neon.php and can
only process 4 floating point elements. ARM processors support
byte-sized blend instructions but only recent Intel processors added
support for byte-sized blends. ARM processors support variable shifts
but only Intel processors with AVX2 support variable shifts. Different
generations of Intel processors support different instruction sets with
different features such as broadcasting from a local register, 16-bit
and 64-bit arithmetic, and varied shuffles. Modern processors even
feature predicated arithmetic and scatter/gather instructions that are
very difficult to model using target independent high-level intrinsics.
The designers of the high-level target independent API should decide if
they want to support the union of all vector instruction sets, or the
intersection. A subset of the vector instructions that represent the
intersection of all popular instruction sets is not useable for writing
non-trivial vector programs. And the superset of the vector instructions
will cause huge performance regressions on platforms that do not support
the used instructions.

Code that uses SIMD.js is not performance-portable. Modern vectorizing
compilers feature complex cost models and heuristics for deciding when
to vectorize, at which vector width, and how many loop iterations to
interleave. The cost models takes into account the features of the
vector instruction set, properties of the architecture such as the
number of vector registers, and properties of the current processor
generation. Making a poor selection decision on any of the vectorization
parameters can result in a major performance regression. Executing
vector intrinsics on processors that don’t support them is slower than
executing multiple scalar instructions because the compiler can’t always
generate efficient with the same semantics.
I don’t believe that it is possible to write non-trivial vector code
that will show performance gains on processors from different families.
Executing vector code with insufficient hardware support will cause
major performance regressions. One of the motivations for SIMD.js was to
allow Emscripten
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Projects/Emscripten to 
vectorize
C code and to emit JavaScript SIMD intrinsics. One problem

What's the policy for unprefixing properties? I thought that they're
prefixed as long as the feature was experimental/under heavy
development. Has it changed? (I'm particularly interested in unprefixing
grid layout properties).

The policies have not changed.

From the data I have at the moment, I see a few reasons to keep the 
prefix on Grid Layout:

-It is a major feature.
-The spec is still a working draft, you are still helping the editor 
finishing the work.
-As far as I know, nobody has shipped the unprefixed version yet, there 
is no urgency for compatibility.

-What IE ships is not the current spec.
-I have not seen much feedback from web developers, which is 
frustrating/annoying :(


Once we are fully matching the latest spec and we have outstanding test 
coverage, we should unprefix the feature.

[webkit-dev] Easy bugs for grab

2014-09-23 Thread Benjamin Poulain

Hello WebKittens,

From time to time, people ask for easy bugs to fix.

Looking at various specs, I see some new features and easy fixes 
available. For example:
-Unprefix cursor zoom-in and zoom-out (easy): 
http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-ui/#cursor

-Element.closest (easy): https://dom.spec.whatwg.org/#dom-element-closest
-Fix the visualization of :nth-child(An+B of selector) in the Inspector 
(probably easy).
-Unprefix your favorite CSS property (easy to hard depending on the 
property).

-etc, etc.

If you want to work on an amazing opensource project, here is an 
opportunity to get started. Shoot me an email if you want to implement 
one of the ideas above.


If nobody wants those, I'll just fix them :)

For clarification of the  goals and the scope, we intend to provide

not have complete control over the entire process, especially the 
eventual packaging and deployment, and the timelines, and that apple 
does not comment about this, but we thought implementing it in webkit 
was a necessary prerequisite in any case. For the rest we will have 
faith :-)


During a phone conversation with eric C, we've ben told that we should 
start by making it happen in the macOS X port as we would snot be able 
to build for iOS and because the differences were not so big between 
the iOS and the macOS ports.

Yep, that sounds like a good plan.
JO has been working on the Media Capture and Stream and webRTC APIs 
for almost a year, and developed an IE and Safari plugin that 
implements all of the APIs. He reads/speaks/write web IDL fluently 
now, and now all the subtleties of the constraints, streams, tracks, 
ect. I sit at the standard committees and help with everything that is 
not clear from the specs. Unfortunately, that does not help understand 
webkit intricacies and that's where we are today.


We reached out to Eric C, Thiago from nokia (NIX port), kirun from 
samsung, and started from there. I also speak regularly with adam Be. 
from ericson at the w3c meetings. I will jump in the project and add 
an additional senior staff, so we should be 2~3 FTE starting tuesday. 
Looking at philippe N works in WK2, it looks like you would be a 
reviewer of any patch we would submit, correct? (bug 
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=123158)
I help from time to time but the right reviewers for work on multimedia 
are Brent Fulgham, Eric Carlson, Jer Noble and Philippe Normand.
With our target (iOS/MacOS X) should we target WK1 or WK2? We plan to 
finalize the webcore part first, but we need to target an app, and a 
port for testing. NIX does not seem to be an option anymore.
Usually, what goes into the WebKit layer is small and WK1 and WK2 are 
done simultaneously. For the initial prototype, you can focus on WebKit2 
and port the code to WebKit1 once you have something stable.


On OS X, WebKit2 is used by WKWebView and Safari, WebKit1 is used by the 
WebView API. On iOS, WebKit2 is used by WKWebView and Safari, WebKit1 is 
used by UIWebView.


For initial prototyping, you can generally focus on WebKit2 first.
There also seem to have been a discussion about the design (platform 
vs client) triggered by adam Be.. Anybody knows if there was a 
conclusion? (bug https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=67946) We 
would prefer putting a maximum of common code in webcore, as proposed 
by adam.
The architecture depends on the backend but also security considerations 
(especially with the access to hardware). You should ask Eric Carlson 
for input.
We are also contributing some tests to w3c (based on testharness.js, 
testing the bindings and IDL only) that we plan to use for testing. 
Dominique has recently committed the tests for steams and tracks using 
the latest spec (here 
https://github.com/w3c/web-platform-tests/tree/master/mediacapture-streams). 
Is there anything we should prepare in the layout tests for this as 
well? It looks like the media stream tests have been excluded from the 
tests for the time being.

That is a good start. You can import W3C tests into WebKit.

To qualify for a release, you would need to have a lot more testing than 
that. Given the scope of WebRTC, this will require improving the testing 
infrastructure of WebKit.
We are trying to have a working implementation by oct 15th, so we 
could send it for test around and get feedback in time for discussion 
during the W3C technical plenary and advisory committee meeting on 
oct. 27th, in San Jose, CA.
Honestly this seems a little short, WebRTC is big. Most non-trivial 
features take several months to get in good shape with proper testing 
and performance coverage.


It is probably possible to get a working prototype in 2 months, but this 
will require great review cycles.

Each port can decide to branch WebKit trunk at any time to stabilize a

As far as I know, only WebKitGTK makes public announcements of their

About Safari Mac, it is branched off WebKit trunk like any other port.

iOS Safari uses the iOS port (flag PLATFORM(IOS)). It shares a lot of
code with OS X, iOS and OS X are very similar platforms.

You do not need to build for it or run the tests, this is done by Apple.
For now, work in the WebKit project really focuses on OSX/GTK/EFL/Windows.

 3) Which port is being used to power third party applications on iOS?

There is not a separate WebKit for Safari and third party apps, the same

Hi WebKit,

I will soon start doing some work around the next spec of CSS Selectors:

The work will be behind a compile time flag
(https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135535).

Hi all,

It's been a while since Igalia started contributing to the development
of the CSS Grid Layout spec in WebKit (enabled in the nightly builds
since May) and we'd like to report about the implementation status to
gather feedback from the community (comments, issues, questions, etc.).

CSS Grid Layout is a browser feature that allows to define responsive
and flexible 2D layouts using just CSS declarations. Visit
http://www.w3.org/TR/css-grid-1/ for more information about the standard.

First of all, the following meta-bug can be used to track the
implementation: http://webkit.org/b/60731

Besides a quite active bugfixing, these are the most important changes
that have been landed recently:

* Introduce compilation flag (http://webkit.org/b/129153) and remove
runtime feature http://webkit.org/b/132382 (thus CSS Grid Layout is
enabled in the nightly builds since May).

* Syntax implementation:
   - Adapting some properties to the last specification:
http://webkit.org/b/127987
  + grid-template-{columns, rows} and grid-template-areas
   - grid-template: Explicit Grid shorthand: http://webkit.org/b/128980
   - grid: Grid Definition Shorthand: http://webkit.org/b/132122

* Code refactoring:
   - Grid position resolution code moved to its own class:
http://webkit.org/b/131732

* Auto-Placement algorithm:
   - Add support for spanning items: http://webkit.org/b/110633

* Z-index:
   - Properly support z-index property on grid items:
http://webkit.org/b/103329

* Alignment and justification:
   - Implement justify-self css property:  http://webkit.org/b/134419

In addition, we're actively working on the following features:

* Alignment and justification:
   - Implement row-axis Alignment:  http://webkit.org/b/133222
   - Implement column-axis Alignment:  http://webkit.org/b/133224
   - Improve margin, border and padding support.

* Auto-placement algorithm:
   - Implement the new sparse and stack modes: http://webkit.org/b/103316

* Performance optimizations:
   - meta-bug to track future optimizations: http://webkit.org/b/125145
   - Dirty bit on grids: http://webkit.org/b/132332

We hope you find this report useful so people interested on this feature
could be aware of our progress and future work. Please, don't hesitate
to give us any kind of feedback; it's really appreciated.

Finally, stating that we're planning to continue working on the
implementation of this spec with the goal of asking before the end of
the year to be considered for shipping . Let's see how all this evolves
and we'll keep you informed.

Best regards.

Yep, the implementation will be behind a compile time flag (the old
implementation already is). That said, I would like to have it enabled by
default in dev builds and the nightlies, both to get it into users’ hands
for testing and to keep the bots running the tests.


That's okay.

The flags are useful to disable unfinished features when shipping (until 
they are ready). You can enable a flag in nightly if the code is stable 
and has good test coverage, the feature does not need to be complete.


Successful examples are CSS Grid Layout and the Picture Element. Both 
are work in progress, they are enabled in Nightly, but none of that code 
is compiled into the released WebKit.

I was able to download the project, build it and run it inside Safari. 
I did not try to run it in a different browser yet.


My configuration:

  * Macbook Air 2012
  * Mac OS X 10.9.4
  * Revision 171167
  * I'm on master
  * I suppose I'm using the regular Mac port as I didn't see where to
change from one port to another yet.
  * building for debug mode

I am now trying to enable the WebRTC related features to get a better 
understanding of the current state of this part of the project.
I have to say that I faced a lack of documentation on this area. I 
found the features list https://trac.webkit.org/wiki/FeatureFlags, a 
document about how to add a new feature 
https://trac.webkit.org/wiki/AddingFeatures but nothing about how to 
turn a feature on and off (there is actually a TODO about that in the 
second link).


I looked into the files that one needs to change to add a new feature 
and found two interesting files:


  * Source/WTF/wtf/FeatureDefines.h - where the WebRTC related
contants were set to 0 instead of 1
  * Source/cmake/WebKitFeatures.cmake - where the contants were set to OFF

I listed the following definitions that look related to WebRTC

  * ENABLE_MEDIA_CAPTURE
  * ENABLE_MEDIA_CONTROLS_SCRIPT
  * ENABLE_MEDIA_SOURCE
  * ENABLE_MEDIA_STATISTICS
  * ENABLE_MEDIA_STREAM
  * ENABLE_VIDEO
  * ENABLE_VIDEO_TRACK

I turned those definitions to 1 and ON in the respective file and 
tried to build.
The code in the header WebCore/Modules/mediastream/mediastream.h could 
not compile apparently because the observer did not have a destructor. 
I created one:

class Observer {
public:
virtual void didAddOrRemoveTrack() = 0;
  virtual ~Observer() {};
};

and tried to build again.

I now have a linking error when building WebCore with Xcode.

Re: [webkit-dev] Picture element implementation

2014-07-01 Thread Benjamin Poulain
The barrier on entry is rather low to enable something in the nightly. 
It is your responsibility to make sure we don't get tons of bug reports, 
crashes, or security issues.


You need to have okay test coverage and make sure the tests work on all 
the ports (if relevant for the given platforms obviously).


Then you just make a patch and post the link to the bug on the mailing 
list. :)

On 6/12/14, 11:24 AM, Dirk Schulze wrote:

I would like to implement the Geometry Interfaces spec in WebKit[1]. The spec 
defines a couple of interfaces like DOMPoint, DOMRect, DOMQuad and DOMMatrix. 
These interfaces are more or less specified versions of proprietary interfaces 
like WebKitPoint or WebKitCSSMatrix as well as old APIs like SVGPoint, SVGRect 
or SVGMatrix that get unified between HTML/CSS and SVG. The specification 
progressed fast and is going to LC within the next weeks. I am going to start 
with DOMPoint/DOMPointReadOnly and DOMRect/DOMRectReadOnly and get to the other 
interfaces one by one. With the exception of DOMMatrix, all interfaces are 
implemented behind a runtime flag in Mozilla Gecko. DOMMatrix will be 
implemented in Gecko soon.

These interfaces will be used by other specifications like CSS OM View or SVG. 
I am going to implement these APIs behind a compiler flag called GEOMETRY. I 
would like to enable the compiler flag by default for better testing. 
Production builds should disable the compiler flag. I will pull out stable APIs 
from the flag when appropriate.


This is such a weird idea.

Ideally, the JavaScript compiler should optimize the handling of all 
those types. By having them in the DOM, you will make those 
optimizations a lot harder to make.


Wouldn't those type suffer the same fate as WebKitCSSMatrix: being 
inefficient on a large scale?


What is the rationale for not having JavaScript primitive types?

Re: [webkit-dev] Expose scroll elasticity/rubber band scrolling in the Desktop as a CSS property?

Hi Marco,

On 6/6/14, 10:52 AM, Marco Aurelio wrote:

I just noticed that WebKit now apparently supports rubber band
scrolling of Web pages beyond their physical boundaries, including
negative `scrollTop` values, that effectively render content above the
top edge of a page.

This is a welcome change, since it gives the pages a much more native
feel overall on OS X. (Instead of the previous gray background on rubber
band scroll) I would like to ask if it's possible to expose control over
this feature as a proprietary CSS property, so that Web developers may
apply this behavior to arbitrary elements in a page.

An analogous property already exists on the iOS port of WebKit, the
`-webkit-overflow-scrolling: touch` property, but perhaps something
matching the semantics of the `NSScrollElasticity` enum in Cocoa — with
values like `auto`, `none` and `allowed` — could be added?


This mailing list is the wrong place for feature requests. The list 
webkit-dev is about the development of WebKit.


I suggest you to open a bug report on https://bugs.webkit.org and/or on 
https://bugreport.apple.com.


In the bug report, you should explain your use cases. Bugs with 
interesting use cases get a lot more attention than ordinary feature 
request.

One more thing: Gábor managed to setup an ARM64 build only bot,

Hi Javier,

As we discussed in the last WebKit Contributors Meeting, I think it

We already have a compilation flag since r164659 [1], so enabling the

test the new feature. Of course, in release builds the compilation flag
is kept to false as expected.

If everybody agrees, we have a patch ready to do this change:
http://webkit.org/b/132189

FWIW, in WebKit nightly builds the runtime feature is set to true or
false depending on the compilation flag since r166614 [2]. However, this
is only affects the Mac port.


Personally, I think you should remove the runtime flag, and be very 
aggressive on the #ifdefs to make sure everything can be disabled when 
shipping.


It would be nice if you could email webkit-dev from time to time about 
your progress on completeness, testing, performance, etc.
I like Zoltan's emails about CSS Shapes status, it is something we 
should do more in the project.

If not, I could write something up for the WebKit blog, but would like
to have an idea of what we as a project would think as important to
highlight.

In addition, there are many sessions from the contributor meeting that
don't have notes or anything on them on the meeting page[2]. If you have
anything you could add for any of the sessions, that would be very useful.


It would be redundant to post the same information on the WebKit blog. 
In my opinion, your blog post is already a good summary.


I think we should make several small blog post about specific subjects. 
I have seen really nice stuffs in the session I attended. From what I 
have seen, we should have posts introducing:

-CSS Regions + inspector integration
-New awesomeness in the Inspector
-CSS Grid Layout

Email me if you need access to the blog.

By the way, anyone knows what is up with Planet WebKit?

Re: [webkit-dev] Style proposal for branch style for macros

 When guarding code with macros that are always defined, such as
 ASSERT_DISABLED (it's always either 0 or 1), we have a choice between:
 
 if (!ASSERT_DISABLED) {

 #if !ASSERT_DISABLED
 // do things
 #endif
 
 I'd like to propose that /anytime the normal if would be semantically
 equivalent to the preprocessor #if, the normal if should be used/.
 
 We don't lose any compiler optimization, since even at -O0, the compiler
 will constant fold the normal if.  We do gain a lot of clarity, since
 the control flow of normal if statements is subject to proper indentation.
 
 The semantically equivalent requirement still allows for #if to be
 used for thinngs like:
 
 - Guarding the placement of fields in a class.
 - Guarding the definitions of other macros (in the case of
 ASSERT_DISABLED, we define ASSERT in different ways guarded by #if's)
 - Guarding the definition/declaration/inclusion of entire functions,
 classes, and other top-level constructs.

This is adding complexity for little gain.

I would not mind replacing all the macros by real if() branches, but
that is not possible in plenty of cases. Using both the branches and the
macro seems like a bad idea.

 They allow features to get much better testing before they are turned

 run. They also make it more likely that both configurations keep

Why not enabling the feature entirely on trunk? (and disable it when

I think feature doing that tends to become stable a lot quicker.

We remove experimental features frequently. The compile time flags make

I'm sending this to the list because it might affect different

So as smfr correctly reported here[1] for all those features that don't

properties of the feature even if it's disabled at runtime (we're
exposing them as well for features enabled at build time but disabled at
runtime).

If I am not wrong, we just disable the parsing of those properties that
are not runtime enabled, but the properties are exposed anyway,
something easy to check doing for example:
Object.getOwnPropertyDescriptor(document.body.style, property-name).


Yep that is bad.


The question is whether this is an acceptable behavior or not, and how
to fix it in case we don't like it. I guess it's safe to conclude that
it isn't something that we want in general, as it might confuse web
authors (they see the how properties are available but do nothing).
Regarding how to fix it, I guess the idea is to do something similar to
what Eric did in Blink last year[2], i.e., filtering out the list of
properties that are runtime disabled.

Opinions?

 Sorting down to specific conditionals will definitely delay the cleanup
 too much!

 Thinking about USE(FOUNDATION) and looking at code it’s clear that the Mac
 and iOS ports have a lot more in common than Foundation. I saw that
 looking at PLATFORM(MAC) code snippets.

 I saw that too after looking at more.

 But as long as we’re going to have something incorrect as a first
 approximation, I don’t think that incorrect uses of USE(FOUNDATION) are
 significantly worse than incorrect uses of USE(COCOA). If long term there
 is not supposed to be such a thing as USE(COCOA), then I would hate to add
 it and then have to remove it later.

 It remains clear to me that a valuable and quick first step is to
 mechanically change PLATFORM(MAC) to BAR, and I am OK with BAR being
 USE(FOUNDATION), USE(COCOA), or PLATFORM(COCOA).

 I am sure there is a lot of easy refinement we can do immediately after.
 For example, we can change BAR  !PLATFORM(IOS) back to PLATFORM(MAC), if
 we can’t find an even better conditional. Maybe our first step can even be
 clever and not ever change such things to BAR, as suggested by Dan.

 I’d like to play the numbers game, so if our best guess is that most
 PLATFORM(MAC) should be USE(FOUNDATION), I would choose that for BAR.

 After thinking about it a bit - USE(COCOA) (or for that matter even
 PLATFORM(COCOA)) might be better as a first cut. Since it's not supposed to
 exist at all long term, it makes for an easy number to drive to zero.
 USE(FOUNDATION) will mix both correct and incorrect uses so it will be
 harder to drive the mistaken applications to zero.

 I'm new here, so sorry if I’m intruding since I don’t have much of a
 stake in this outcome, but USE(COCOA) then seems to imply to me that
 you need to also have a USE(COCOATOUCH). It so, then maybe it should
 be AppKit vs. UIKit instead for more clarity.

Here Cocoa implies both Cocoa and Cocoa Touch.

 There is another potential case where you have an Obj-C framework
 environment that is not Apple’s. I’ll cite GNUStep and Apportable as
 two cases. The former provides a Cocoa (AppKit) compatible
 implementation but tends to run on Linux or Windows. The latter
 provides a UIKit compatible implementation and tends to run on
 Android.

There is not port of WebKit for GNUStep. Consequently, it does not
impact design decisions.

 This asks the question, do you really mean Mac vs. iOS, or AppKit vs.
 UIKit, or something else?

Something else :)

The name suggested here is for all the code that is common between OS X
and iOS, but not related to the Darwin Kernel.

IMHO, COCOA is an improvement over PLATFORM(MAC).

Hi Everyone,

We are working hard to move WebKit toward stronger adoption of C++11

You can get a feel for the level of C++11 support in the last few
versions of Visual Studio here:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/vstudio/hh567368.aspx

With Visual Studio 2013, we finally have access to a compiler that
supports the major C++11 features we need. Consequently, we intend to
switch to VS2013 and begin taking advantage of these new language
constructs.

Over the next week we will be landed a series of source changes that
allow WebKit to be built with VS2013, but will continue to build with
VS2010 on our build machines.  Next Friday, we plan to land project file
changes to switch to the new compiler, and will simultaneously convert
our build system to use VS2013 as well.

Once the revised project files are landed, we will no longer be
officially supporting Visual Studio 2010 as a compiler target.

For those playing at home, you can track progress by following
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=125192.

WebKit continues to build with the free “Visual Studio 2013 Express”
software, so I do not anticipate that this change will block any
external developers from running Windows builds.

A simple Yes would have sufficed.  I was just asking if I needed to
demonstrate it.  Take this markup:

img srcset=foo 1x, bar 2x || baz 1x, qux 2x

You expect this to break into two lists, foo 1x, bar 2x and baz 1x,
qux 2x, which are then each split as currently proposed.

However, by the current parsing algorithm, || is read as an
unsupported descriptor, so it just breaks them into foo 1x, bar 2x
|| baz 1x, and qux 2x.  The middle one is thrown away, because of
the duplicate x descriptor, and so the whole thing is just parsed to
the same value as foo 1x, qux 2x, which is completely wrong.


This just sounds like a bad excuse. As far as I know, no browser has 
shipped srcset.

I sympathize. The issue of srcN appearing to be a complex solution to a
seemingly simple problem came up again on IRC chatting to rniwa, so I
thought I'd try to explain this briefly.

Unfortunately, responsive images is a deceptively complex problem. There
are 3 main use cases:
1. dpr-switching: fixed-width image resolution based on devicePixelRatio.
2. viewport-switching: flexible-width image resolution based on viewport
width and devicePixelRatio.
3. art direction: same as #1 or #2, except additionally, must serve
completely different images based on viewport width.


How important and common are each of those use cases?
Handling every imaginable use case by the Engine is a non-goal.

There has been a lot of demand for dpr-switching since the first iPad 
Retina. This has caused some very ugly hacks on the Web. It is very 
important to address that issue.


Viewport switching is usually done to adapt images for mobile device VS 
large/huge display devices. It is a valid concern but it is not easily 
addressed. Srcset can/should likely be improved regarding this.


I believe (feel free to prove me wrong) dynamic viewport adaptation and 
what you call art direction is not as common.
I have the feeling those corner cases may be better addressed with 
JavaScript.



In my opinion WebKit should not support srcN in its current form. We are 
here to make the web a better/friendlier platform. The srcN proposal 
does not do that, it is a catch all that makes the important use cases 
more difficult.

This discusion came up multiple times on Bugzilla so I'm posting it here.

When a member function f() of a RefCounted object can end up removing
the last ref to the object itself, should we do:

void Foo::f() {
 RefPtrFoo protect(this);
}

or

RefPtrFoo foo = rawPointerToFoo;
foo-f()

in its call site.

The first approach guarantees that any call to f() is safe while the
second approach is future proof if we add more code to use foo after
calling f().

I think it's good to agree on one convention here since managing
lifetime of objects is tricky, and having one convention will make it
easier to reason about things.


To preserve the encapsulation, it seems to me
RefPtrFoo protect(this);
makes more sense. If a method calls something that would cause the 
object to be removed, the method itself should ensure the validity of 
the following instructions.


The user of the interface should not have to know such implementation 
detail of the object.



The second one is useful for other use cases:
RefPtrFoo foo = rawPointerToFoo;
doSomething(foo); // This could potentially destroy foo.
foo-f();

   My initial impression is that it seems a bit overengineered.

I sympathize. The issue of srcN appearing to be a complex
solution to a
seemingly simple problem came up again on IRC chatting to rniwa,
so I
thought I'd try to explain this briefly.

Unfortunately, responsive images is a deceptively complex
problem. There
are 3 main use cases:
1. dpr-switching: fixed-width image resolution based on
devicePixelRatio.
2. viewport-switching: flexible-width image resolution based on
viewport
width and devicePixelRatio.
3. art direction: same as #1 or #2, except additionally, must serve
completely different images based on viewport width.


How important and common are each of those use cases?
Handling every imaginable use case by the Engine is a non-goal.


There has been a lot of demand for dpr-switching since the first
iPad Retina. This has caused some very ugly hacks on the Web. It is
very important to address that issue.

Viewport switching is usually done to adapt images for mobile device
VS large/huge display devices. It is a valid concern but it is not
easily addressed. Srcset can/should likely be improved regarding this.

I believe (feel free to prove me wrong) dynamic viewport adaptation
and what you call art direction is not as common.

On a survey ran at the last Mobilism conference (and on Twitter) 41% of
respondents said they're already using some hack to get their responsive
image art-directed.
A manual responsive site survey
http://japborst.net/blog/the-current-state-of-art-direction.html showed that
23% of the sites art-direct their images, and 58% do that when
(subjectively) the design requires it.
So it might not be as common as viewport switching (which is practically
everywhere), but it is pretty common.


The survey you linked 
(http://japborst.net/blog/the-current-state-of-art-direction.html) was 
targeting specifically responsive websites. Those websites represents 
only an unquantified subset of the web.


Even with that very targeted subset, only a small percentage was 
actually implementing art-direction.


It looks to me like art-direction should not be imposing all the design 
constraints over the more important use cases.



Something that is still unclear to me is why srcN would be doing a 
better job than JavaScript for art-direction?
There are many complex cases that are handled dynamically (changing 
images on zoom; tiling large images on zoom; changing layout on 
rotation; creating popover style layout when switching 
portrait/landscape, etc).

Re: [webkit-dev] Code cleaning: LEGACY_VIEWPORT_ADAPTION

 I plan to remove the code guarded by LEGACY_VIEWPORT_ADAPTION and the flag

 I was reading the original bug report[1] to find a list of websites
 targeting mobile devices that don't render well if this feature is
 disabled, the original list includes:
 
 m.yahoo.com
 m.google.com
 m.facebook.com
 
 All this if you do not use some apple-like user agent, I did test them
 again today to check the current status and just m.google.com is still
 using those legacy DTD causing WebKit to render the page into a 980px
 canvas where it was designed to be rendered into a 320px canvas. There
 may be other (old) sites not rendering well but at least at the time
 of the bug report this small list with very popular websites was
 enough to add this feature to a product (N9 phone) then to WebCore.
 
 I also found that besides Blackberry, Chromium turned on this flag[2]
 last year, but I didn't check if it still enabled on blink.

It is okay to adapt the viewport for the mobile doctypes. WebKit on iOS
also does that for the reasons you mentioned.

The problem here is the code is not correct.

 Support legacy stuff is a pain and just inject undesirable code in the
 codebase, but I would like to know if there are other options rather
 than just removing the feature and let few, but some important,
 website not working?

If Nix really relies on that code, I will leave it in for now.

When the relevant iOS bits and pieces will be upstream, it will be
easier to implement viewport adaptation and I'll remove
LEGACY_VIEWPORT_ADAPTION then.

 One of the answers on this Stack Overflow question

 *use* |make_shared|
 http://en.cppreference.com/w/cpp/memory/shared_ptr/make_shared *to

 two different blocks: one for the object and one for the counter and

 Unfortunately, it looks like
 http://nerds-central.blogspot.com/2012/03/sharedptr-performance-issues-and.html
 they're really slow because they're thread-safe, but that may also apply
 to RefPtr.

RefPtr is not thread-safe.

The count itself is maintained by the objects, not the smart pointer.
The vast majority of objects are not thread-safe either due to obvious
performance problems.

 Ignoring other aspects of this, the idea of making attribute name an

I was thinking the same thing last night. In addition to weirdness on
the engine side, it looks like a nightmare for authoring/tooling.

Is there a precedent for this strange notation?

Re: [webkit-dev] Proposal: Use ICU in WebKit code

2013-10-06 Thread Benjamin Poulain
I think the question was about the performance impact of using UTF-16 as
an internal representation of characters.

The original claim was in effect that the encoding conversion to UTF-16
is so costly that it offsets any gain of doing codepoint operations on
UTF-16 instead of UTF-8.

It is a very strong claim because experiments so far have proven the
opposite. I think the statement against ICU/UTF16 needs to be backed by
experimental data.

 Geoffrey, http://userguide.icu-project.org/conversion/converters says:
 
 Since ICU uses Unicode (UTF-16) internally, all converters convert
 between UTF-16 (with the endianness according to the current platform)
 and another encoding.
 
 That said, I don't think it's a major concern because ICU works on byte
 streams. It's not like these strings will persist internally somewhere
 eating lots of memory.
 
 From experience, the old WTF in-place converters found in WebKit
 mobile ports of past were way-buggy and probably only ever tested with
 ASCII. I'd say use ICU and don't look back :-)

 There is an issue with ICU: it uses UTF16 as its internal representation, 
 while most of the Web nowadays is UTF8. Therefore, page text goes through 
 unnecessary encoding conversion, and takes more memory than in UTF8 (for 
 most of languages). So it might be not a good development direction to tie 
 up WebKit to ICU.
 Is there a benchmark or website that can verify these claims?

Re: [webkit-dev] Please install shellwords on the bots

 Is for making run-javascriptcore-tests run all of the tests in

 improves JSC test coverage.
 
 Right now, the script will refuse to do anything if your machine
 doesn't have the Ruby shellwords package installed.  Eventually I'll
 change that to make it just fail.
 
 Please install shellwords on the bots so that this script can work.
 
 (And no, I don't see an easy alternative to using shellwords for this
 testing infrastructure.  It would take a lot more code if we didn't
 want to use shellwords.  So, you should install shellwords to run
 javascriptcore tests.  It's already installed by default on a lot of
 OS's.)
 
 I'll be landing this patch soon.  We need the test coverage.

Could run-javascriptcore-tests just install shellwords when it is missing?

There is a precedent of this, webkit-patch downloads every missing
packages, making it easy to use without installing the dependencies.
