Good article about discussions going on in the Javascript world (ECMAScript 2015) about the language. I'm not very versant in js but understand it has some of the same "problems" as DataFlex. Which have become somewhat more confusing with the recent differences with the "web" version of DataFlex and the "Windows" version. Is it Set pbEnabled or Set enabled_state ? And then the fact that DataFlex language code from over 30 years ago is still present and can be compiled in today's latest version. Very nice but the overhead of maintaining such backward compatiblity I feel is impeding advancement.

Isn't it about time to clean up the language and maybe have some special settings in place or even a different compiler, VM if you REALLY need to go back to 2.3 procedural code.
