PACMPL is an open access journal so there won’t be a paywall preventing people from reading our paper. Regardless, starting right now you can access the preprint at But before you run off and start reading this 190 page “paper” I want to talk a bit about HOPL. The History of Programming Languages Conferences HOPL is a unique conference and the foremost conference relating to the history of programming languages. Version 9 of Angular Now Available — Project Ivy has arrived! The 9.0.0 release of Angular is here!
Learn Development at Frontend Masters The ninth edition of the ECMAScript standard, officially known as ECMAScript 2018 (or ES2018 for short), was released in June 2018. Starting with ES2016, new versions of ECMAScript specifications are released yearly rather than every several years and add fewer features than major editions used to. The newest edition of the standard continues the yearly release cycle by adding four new RegExp features, rest/spread properties, asynchronous iteration, and Promise.prototype.finally. Additionally, ES2018 drops the syntax restriction of escape sequences from tagged templates. These new changes are explained in the subsections that follow. #The Rest/Spread Properties One of the most interesting features added to ES2015 was the spread operator.
The spread operator also comes in handy in situations where an array must be passed in as separate arguments to a function. ES2018 further expands this syntax by adding spread properties to object literals. Node.js: V8 release v8.0. It’s finally here.
Every V8 release, every six weeks when we branch as part of our release process, the question comes up about what will happen when V8 hits version 8. Will we have a party? Will we ship a new compiler? Will we skip versions 8 and 9 and just stay at an eternal V8 version X? Finally, after over 10 years of work, on our 100th blog post, we’re pleased to announce our newest branch, V8 version 8.0 V8, and we can finally answer that question: It’s bug fixes and performance improvements.
Announcing TypeScript 3.7.
