Ecma International has approved Google's Dart web programming language as the latest ECMA standard.

Google shared today that their Dart programming language -- a language Google designed to be faster than JavaScript -- as the ECMA-408 standard. This initial ECMA-approved specification does without enums and deferred loading and some async support but Google engineers hope to have those features approved for the next revision of the specification by the end of this year. Google has been pushing Dart to ECMA since last year.

The Dart ECMA announcement was made via Google+. We have covered Dart in the past on Phoronix due to its claims of being much faster than JavaScript but to date its adoption is limited. You can learn more about this web programming language via DartLang.org.
