- Harmony proposals: Features that browser vendors (in the TC39 ) agreed should be part of ECMAScript.next. Highlights:
- Destructuring assignment
- Strawman: Proposals where TC39 is still debating whether to include them in ECMAScript.next or not. Quoting a tweet by Brendan Eich:
See [the Strawman page] for “not yet Harmony but maybe ES.next.next”. A few of these should still make ES.next...Examples:
- Shorter function syntax
- Data structures: maps, sets, ...
- Class abstractions
- Paren-free syntax
