C# Standardization


#1

Not sure if this is in the realm of the .net foundation, but is there going to be any initiative to update the ECMA standard for C#? It hasn’t been formally updated since C# 2.0 if my memory is correct.


#2

Miguel said this in his blog post back in April:

For the last couple of months, the ECMA C# committee has been working on updating the spec to reflect C# 5. And this time around, the spec benefits from having two independent compiler implementations.


#3

Yes, I can confirm that. Miguel and I are both on the ECMA committee working to standardize C# 5. It may take a while for us to finish the work, though! We have a lot of catching up to do, since we skipped two versions of the language. But we’re on it!


#4

and what about C# 6?


#5

I assume C# 6 will be next, but let’s look at that when we get there.


#6

Great news! I’m glad to see this happening. Hopefully this will continue on for each version. Thanks for your work on it Mads.
