Influenced by CoffeeScript[edit]

the infobox claims "Influenced by: CoffeeScript", which, given there's not a single mention of that anywhere on the page nor this discussion, sounds a bit weird, especially given CoffeeScript is both way younger than ECMAScript, and a language that's designed to extend/modify and compile to it?

Well, I think it's because newer versions of ECMAScript have features (like optional chaining) that are inspired by CoffeeScript's syntax.  AltoStev Talk 13:46, 15 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Missing history[edit]

The introduction in has some information not included in this article. It's a primary source but there should be others...

Some quotes:

"Focused development of the sixth edition started in 2009, as the fifth edition was being prepared for publication. However, this was preceded by significant experimentation and language enhancement design efforts dating to the publication of the third edition in 1999."

"ECMAScript 2016 was the first ECMAScript edition released under Ecma TC39's new yearly release cadence and open development process"  AltoStev Talk 13:50, 15 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
