A fork of Node.js, with ES6 compatibility
What do you think about it?
Personally, I think that this fork, as long as it continues to be backwards-compatible with Node.js, will be beneficial to the community.
@Technowix there are performance gains related to the new structures in ES6 (generators, async functions, classes, ect.) There also may be performance gains since they are updating the internal version of V8 to the latest stable version (Node is still on an older version from what I understand).
