Ecma has created a new technical committee named TC52 to publish a standard specification of the Dart complex web application language. Dart is intended to help developers build HTML5 apps for the Web, fast, hence the name.
Ecma International, for its part, is an industry association founded in 1961, dedicated to the standardization of information and communication systems — Dart has been originally developed by Google.
So now Dart is ready for standardization after last month's 1.0 SDK release, which saw the language reach a state of stability and maturity to rank it suitable for production use. The Ecma team says that it will now be collaborating with the broader web community via TC52 to responsibly evolve the language going forward.
The new standardization process is an "important step" towards a future where Dart runs natively in web browsers, says the team.
