  • Documentation fix.
  • Added TimedToggle, which may or may not be useful at all.
  • Now cross-building for RC2 and RC3.

v1.0.4: Apr 27 2010

  • Blank Timer instances (i.e., those which have recorded no timings yet) no longer explode when asked for metrics for that which does not yet exist.
  • Nested classes, companion objects, and singletons don’t have trailing $ characters messing up JMX’s good looks.

v1.0.3: Apr 16 2010

  • Fixed some issues with the implicit.ly plumbing.
  • Tweaked the sample size for Timer, giving it 99.9% confidence level with a %5 margin of error (for a normally distributed variable, which it almost certainly isn’t.)
  • Sample#iterator returns only the recorded data, not a bunch of zeros.
  • Moved units of Timer, Meter, and LoadMeter to their own attributes, which allows for easy export of Metrics data via JMX to things like Ganglia or whatever.

v1.0.2: Mar 08 2010

  • Timer now uses Welford’s algorithm for calculating running variance, which means no more hilariously wrong standard deviations (e.g., NaN).
  • Timer now supports +=(Long) for pre-recorded, nanosecond-precision timings.

v1.0.1: Mar 05 2010

  • changed Sample to use an AtomicReferenceArray

v1.0.0: Feb 27 2010

  • Initial release
