WowWow! New JavaScript and WebAssembly Features in V8

In this talk we’re going to take a look at what happened in the V8 project in the past year (which is what to expect in the next version of Node.js), and what’s going to happen in the next year. Specifically, we will highlight new JavaScript and WebAssembly features.

What is V8?

V8 is Google’s open source high-performance JavaScript and WebAssembly engine, written in C++. It is used in Chrome and in Node.js, among others. It implements ECMAScript and WebAssembly, and runs on Windows 7 or later, macOS 10.12+, and Linux systems that use x64, IA-32, ARM, or MIPS processors. V8 can run standalone, or can be embedded into any C++ application.

JavaScript and WebAssembly features

This section explains the latest new features in JavaScript, the programming language specified by ECMA-262 (ECMAScript) and ECMA-402 (the ECMAScript Internationalization API), and in WebAssembly (Wasm).

We aim to provide concise explanations of new language features with easy-to-understand code examples. For more in-depth documentation, please refer to the external links in each explainer.
