Congratulations!

ES5 was officially approved as an ECMA standard at the ECMA General Assembly held at Google yesterday.  The vote, with 2/3 required to pass, was 19 yes and 2 no, with IBM voting no due to the lack of decimal and Intel voting no because they didn't have enough time to study the intellectual property implications of the standard.

Fast track submission to ISO was also approved by the ECMA General Assembly.

BSD licensing of ECMA copyright-owned code like the test suite also received quite a bit of debate at the General Assembly.  The GA agreed to a postal ballot after the next Coordinating Committee meeting, assuming a proposal is made to them in time and they like it.
