It's all in the specification draft.


In general, read the spec. draft not the wiki pages which are neither complete, accurate, or normative.

There's definitely out of date stuff on there and I'm not sure what things have been formally accepted (with consensus) for ES6, which are generally assumed to be accepted for ES6, and which are definitely not going to be for ES6. For example, object literal property shorthands (method) seem like something that's generally accepted to be in ES6 (people often use it in example code here on es-discuss) but I can't find a reference to where it was actually agreed upon.
