Temporal is about to reach stage 4


People who have been waiting for the Temporal proposal, and for browsers to release their implementations unprefixed, have reason to be happy :)

IETF has approved draft-ietf-sedate-datetime-extended, which was the last block before moving Temporal to stage 4 in the TC-39 process.

Now, short of major implementation issues reported to TC39, this should move to stage 4 once two interoperable implementations ship in browsers.

Using the Temporal polyfill provides a spec-compliant workaround for the API until browsers implement it natively.

I discussed using the polyfill along with examples of how the API works in Revisiting the TC39 Temporal proposal
