ECMA Is Working On Standardizing Google's Dart

ECMA International has formed a technical committee to work on a standard specification for the Dart web programming language that's developed by Google as an alternative to JavaScript.

Dart is one of the web programming languages out of Google that is designed to ultimately replace JavaScript. Dart is meant to take care of JavaScript's shortcomings and provide better performance, but Dart has hardly been implemented up to this point.

ECMA is now working on TC52 to push Dart as a standard, "To standardize the syntax and semantics of a modern, object oriented programming language called Dart as well as standardizing core libraries and complementary technologies that support the language. This work should not use patents or if so then only royalty free patents. To aid in achieving that objective, this TC will use an experimental TC52 RF patent policy similar that has been developed for use by TC39."

This news comes just one month after Google published the Dart 1.0 SDK where they now say it's ready for production use.

Google engineers wrote about the TC52 news in a Chromium blog post, "The new standardization process is an important step towards a future where Dart runs natively in web browsers. Dart apps can be fast when compiled to JavaScript, but an embedded Dart VM enables even better performance. We're thrilled to have a dedicated technical committee working on Dart. We also feel confident that Ecma—the home of standards such as JavaScript, Eiffel, and C#—is the right place to help guide the evolution of the Dart language."
