Object.observe()


#1

I have reports of Object.observe() being removed. I knew this would be coming, as it’s no longer in Chrome. Unfortunately though, I can’t reproduce this error on my mac or windows machine (shamefully don’t have access to a linux box at the moment):

Any ideas why I’m not seeing it? Is this user on the beta? How does one get on the beta?


#2

You are not seeing it because he is using an unofficial release of Atom. He is using Electron 1.4.2 which is not the version that Atom 1.10.2 was released with.


#3

Oops. Sorry, yeah, meant to update this with that new info.

He’s using arch linux, and yeah, I guess the newer electron has the chromium update etc.


#4

By the way, here is the Atom policy on unofficial distributions if you want to link to it.


#5

Thanks! Yeah, sorry for the noise, I didn’t realize that mess was going on…

Is there perhaps a way the bug reporting tools can just throw up if a mismatch is detected? Might not be worth the effort to tweak that of course :sleeping:


#6

I’ve got some ideas around that, though there’s nothing preventing these folks from patching that code to say that there isn’t a mismatch unless we do the calculation on the server :confused:
