ECMAScript, Fifth Edition Candidate Specification Announced

  • Comments 18

Yesterday was a significant milestone in the web’s continuing evolution—the announcement of ECMAScript, Fifth Edition Candidate Specification (formerly known as ECMAScript 3.1 back when I last mentioned it); the “Candidate Specification” stage is the last stop on the road to becoming a final standard. Read more about it on the Jscript blog!

This is a great achievement and paves the way for enhanced web programming scenarios in all browsers. I’d also like to personally thank Allen and Pratap for their contribution to the TC-39 effort, as well as their assistance in delivering a few of the ES 5 features to our customers in IE8.
