ECMAScript 2015 is now an Ecma Standard

# Allen Wirfs-Brock (2 years ago)

Ecma international has announced that its General Assembly has approved ECMA-262-6 The ECMAScript 2015 Language Specification as an Ecma standard www.ecma-international.org/news/index.html

The official document is now available from Ecma in HTML at www.ecma-international.org/ecma-262/6.0

and as a PDF at www.ecma-international.org/ecma-262/6.0/ECMA-262.pdf

I recommend that people immediately start using the Ecma HTML version in discussion where they need to link references to sections of the specification.

This is awesome news - now to get someone to make something similar to es5.github.io in terms of readability and ease of use :)

# David Bruant (2 years ago)

Lots of the changes were long awaited. ES2015 is an important milestone. More important even is the momentum and recent changes to the way people can contribute to the standard.

Thank you to everyone involved in making all of this happen!

Filed Pull Requests to es6-shim and core-js to match the late change to the Promise.reject text.

Yay final spec! --scott ​

FWIW: I’ve made a list of all IDs from the old ES6 HTML spec that don’t work anymore (spoiler: only a few of the symbolic ones):

So is this effectively "rev39" (referred to in bug responses)?

Where should bug reports on 6th edition go? (bugs.ecmascript.org doesn't appear to have an appropriate "product category".)

yes, I'll be posting a change summary for rev39

I've now reated a product for the 6th Edition. The "Draft for 6th Edition" product is now closed for new bug submissions. bugs.ecmascript.org/describecomponents.cgi

Congrats the whole TC-39, and special thanks to Allen Wirfs-Brock for the actual great editorial work on the spec!
