Google retires Octane JavaScript benchmark to avoid Cheating

On 12th April 2017, Google has made a huge announcement of octane javascript benchmark which is being retired. Google says that it’s no longer useful for browser developers to optimize their engines of javascript. Octane benchmark suite was introduced in 2012 by the developers of V8 and javascript engine used in chrome. JavaScript benchmarks were initially created to measure workloads and typescripts of the compiler which were important for new cases. This change has rendered individual finite lifespans to benchmarks. Since JavaScript itself has changed in terms of the cutdown versions, the standardized version of javascript ECMAScript 2015 introduced a range of new frameworks and libraries which have emerged recently. None of these are tested by the Octane suite. First and foremost, Octane solely focuses on engine developers, which highlight the areas of improvement. But just as with Sunspider (first JavaScript benchmark) that preceded it, Google has found that optimizations have been developed to boost Octane, even if it interferes with other scenarios. The content of octane benchmark suite which measures javascript performance as follows: 1. Diminishing returns and over optimization: Octane provides a single value to the javascript virtual machine ecosystem, which provides various applications to perform.This technique helps most of the real websites load faster. This has led to a significant regression in the existing node.js applications. 2.Beyond octane and other synthetic benchmarks: Beyond octane, which enables the JS ecosystems in computationally expensive javascript to make large gains and other benchmarks investing time in understanding real-world node applications, it also measures server-side Javascript performance through workloads such as AcmeAir.

Google Introduces Upgraded Issue Tracker for AOSP Developers

Google is now going to upgrade its Android Open Source Project (AOSP) issue tracking system to Issue Tracker. As of now, the company is using this tool internally to track bugs and feature requests while building products. With the introduction of Issue Tracker, Google wants to provide better collaboration between its developers and product teams. Issue Tracker shows only the developer’s specific issues. Anytime developers can change the setting to show a hotlist of their choice, bookmark group, or a saved search. As mentioned in Android official blog, “Starting today, all issues formerly at code.google.com/p/android/issues will migrate to Issue Tracker under the Android Public Tracker component.” Google has already started using Issue Tracker to collect feedback on the O Developer Preview. The company has advised developers to check out Life of a bug because the mapping is not similar as it was in code.google.com. If a developer opens a code.google.com issue link, he/she will be redirected to the new system. Issue Tracker will contain all the issues reported earlier in code.google.com. Android Public Tracker component will have all the reported Android issues. Developers can search for some specific categories of issues, such as Tools and Support Libraries by searching for specific components.Along with this, to report any issue, developers can check from the issues list whether it has been already reported or not. However, developers can create new issues by just clicking on “Create Issue” and search for the appropriate component. For more information related to Issue Tracker, please visit https://developers.google.com/issue-tracker/
