Bug 634155: Account for NewCompartment's memory, and change allocation APIs (r=nnethercote) This changes the allocation API, in the following way: js_malloc -> {cx->,rt->,OffTheBooks::}malloc js_calloc -> {cx->,rt->,OffTheBooks::}calloc js_realloc -> {cx->,rt->,OffTheBooks::}realloc js_free -> {cx->,rt->,Foreground::,UnwantedForeground::}free js_new -> {cx->,rt->,OffTheBooks::}new_ js_new_array -> {cx->,rt->,OffTheBooks::}new_array js_delete -> {cx->,rt->,Foreground::,UnwantedForeground::}delete_ This is to move as many allocations as possible through a JSContext (so that they may be aken into account by gcMallocBytes) and to move as many deallocations to the background as possible (except on error paths).

You can download nightly development builds from the Mozilla FTP server.
Keep in mind that nightly builds, which are used by Mozilla developers for
testing, may be buggy. Firefox nightlies, for example, can be found at:
