Description Arthur Langereis 2008-02-13 04:44:41 PST
JS 1.7 support was introduced in Firefox 2.0 and is now also available on the server-side via Aptana's Jaxer Server (which uses Gecko 1.9). It introduces a couple of powerful enhancements to the language that would be very welcome in Safari.

These features are also a step towards the JS2 spec. With Gecko, (Mobile)Safari and hopefully later Opera on board, it will become a more viable technique to use on at least domain- and/or mobile-specific sites.

Confirmed as an enhancement request
Comment 2 Gavin Barraclough 2012-03-07 18:37:48 PST
Our goal is ECMA-262 conformance.  Many of the features of JS1.7 are being standardized as a part of ES6 Harmony, those that are not standardized are unlikely to be supported.  Duping to the ES6 bug, which is tracking the features in JS1.7 that will be implemented.
