Javascript 1.5 goes Beta!

Wednesday January 12th, 2000

Javascript 1.5 has reached beta, and you can test it out in Mozilla now. You can read more about Javascript in Mozilla here, and the 1.5 announcement here. The announcement page also has links to discussions going on in the jseng newsgroup regarding some of the new features.

So, what's new? Well, some ECMA-262, revision 3 changes: Conditional function declaration, runtime errors reported as exceptions, and regular expression enhancements. Also, multiple catch clauses, getters and setters, catch keyword, and "strict" mode. Lots of info in the announcement page, so check it out!

Excellent testcase! It looks like your bug is a dupe of 19178, you may want to mark it as such and attach your testcase there instead.
