ES6 Overview in 350 Bullet Points

ES6 – also known as Harmony, es-next, ES2015 – is the latest finalized specification of the language The ES6 specification was finalized in June 2015, (hence ES2015) Future versions of the specification will follow the ES[YYYY] pattern, e.g ES2016 for ES7 Yearly release schedule, features that don’t make the cut take the next train Since ES6 pre-dates that decision, most of us still call it ES6 Starting with ES2016 (ES7), we should start using the ES[YYYY] pattern to refer to newer versions Top reason for naming scheme is to pressure browser vendors into quickly implementing newest features (back to table of contents) A new primitive type in ES6 You can create your own symbols using var symbol = Symbol() You can add a description for debugging purposes, like Symbol() Symbols are immutable and unique.
