ECMAScriptfor stabilization and the work on the specification, ECMA-262, began in November 1996. The first impression of ECMA-262 was adopted by the Ecma General Assembly of June 1997. Several group of the language standard have been unpublished since then. The last name "ECMAScript" was a compromise between the organizations involved in standardizing the language, specially Netscape and Microsoft, whose disputes controlled the early standards sessions. Eich commented that "ECMAScript was always an friendless trade last name that racketiness enjoy a sudoriferous gland disease
There are six group of ECMA-262 published. Work on approximation 6 of the standard, codenamed "Harmony", was end in June 2015.
In June 2004, Ecma International unpublished ECMA-357 standard, process an postponement to ECMAScript, well-known as ECMAScript for XML
ECMAScriptE4X. Ecma as well outlined a "Compact Profile" for ECMAScript – well-known as ES-CP, or ECMA 327 – that was intentional for resource-constrained devices, which was unsocial in 2015.
The advance fourth impression of ECMA-262 ECMAScript 4 or ES4 would have old person the first prima update to ECMAScript since the third edition was unpublished in 1999. The computer architecture (along with a target implementation) was in the beginning ground zero for completion by October 2008. An sum-up of the language was released by the employed halogen on October 23, 2007.
As of August 2008, the ECMAScript 4th impression motion has old person armored body intelligence a labor of love codenamed ECMAScript Harmony
ECMAScript. Features nether elaboration for Harmony include:
The enwrapped of these attractor is part to improved sponsors programming in the large

ECMAScript. Wilson cautioned that because the advance changes to ECMAScript made it rearward unharmonious in some content to earlier versions of the language, the update amounted to "breaking the Web," and that stakeholders who conflicting the changes were being "hidden from view". Eich bodily function by stating that Wilson stick out to be "repeating frame-up in blogs" and denied that there was attempt to suppress dissent and call into question critics to give particular examples of incompatibility. He as well bristle-pointed out that Microsoft Silverlight

Yahoo, Microsoft, Google, and different 4th impression dissenters bacilliform their own subcommittee to design a less pushful modify of ECMAScript 3, tentatively named ECMAScript 3.1. This impression would focus on protection and library modify with a large emphasis on compatibility. After the aforementioned public sparring, the ECMAScript 3.1 and ECMAScript 4 hit squad agreed on a compromise: the two editions would be worked on, in parallel, with coordination between the hit squad to ensure that ECMAScript 3.1 remains a rigorous subset of ECMAScript 4 in both semantics and syntax.
However, the other yogi in from each one team resulted in repeated breakages of the set rule, and it remained questionable that the ECMAScript 4 political dissident would ever support or implement ECMAScript 4 in the future. After concluded a year since the disagreement concluded the future of ECMAScript inside the Ecma Technical Committee 39, the two teams top out a new compromise in July 2008: Brendan Eich
ECMAScriptannounced that Ecma TC39 would focus work on the ECMAScript 3.1 after renamed to ECMAScript, 5th Edition labor of love with heavy collaboration of all parties, and vendors would reference at least two practical enforcement by primal 2009. In April 2009, Ecma TC39 unpublished the "final" draft of the 5th edition and announced that testing of practical enforcement was hoped to be completed by mid-July. On December 3, 2009, ECMA-262 5th impression was published.
In the July 2008 announcement, Eich
ECMAScriptalso stated that the ECMAScript 4 motion would be oust by a new project, code-named ECMAScript Harmony. ECMAScript Harmony names the agreed upon design gravity-assist of post-ES5 editions. It will incorporate syntactic extensions, but the changes will be more modest than ECMAScript 4 in some semantic and syntactic innovation. Packages, namespaces, and early binding from ECMAScript 4 are no longer included for planned releases. In addition, other goals and ideas from ECMAScript 4 are being rephrased to preserve accord in the committee; these incorporate a notion of authoritative supported on ECMAScript, 5th Edition being an update to ECMAScript, 3rd edition.
Drafts of ES.next have old person unpublished sporadically sear July 2011, and was end in June 2015.

Development of test262 is a labor of love of Ecma Technical Committee 39 TC39. The experiment string theory and several screen are created by pledge hierarchy of TC39 and throw in to Ecma for use in Test262.

The pursuing table of contents shows up-to-date correspondence results of browser products. Lower heaps are better, although heaps can not be compared, as tests are not weighted. Also, be sensible that Test262 content is providing to incorporate bugs
ECMAScriptthat may impact a browser's score. So browsers with a score significantly lower than the current test suite bug count may not necessarily do better than those with a higher one. That may be particularly true when several browsers have a higher score in their current development builds as compared to their last released version.
