ECMAScript 6 release date

Was this today or did it happen a few days ago and I didn’t notice until now.

Well, Discourse has been using ES6 for at least a couple of months.
Buf AFAICT it wasn’t “approved” until a couple of days ago.

I’m still trying to get my head around what the improvements are, but looks like some good stuff to me.

I started adding pages to my JavaScript site introducing some of the proposed new features a year or two back…

I have been watching for the official standard release so that I can update the version info on the site appropriately. If it happened a couple of days ago I am surprised that none of the JavaScript newsletters I receive mentioned it until today - maybe they hadn’t noticed either.

It is now officially the current version of JavaScript even though a lot of it isn’t yet fully supported by current browsers but then there are still people using browsers so old that they don’t even support everything in the last version. just says June 2015

That does seem extremely odd. Seeing as how popular JavaScript is, I would think it would have been in the news a few days before, not after.

Maybe it’s due to the fact that it’s a Standard, not an implementation.

Via Versioning, this article came out the 17th.
