JavaScript is evolving with ECMAScript harmony 6, it's just incredibly 
slow to standardize on the new stuff, and even slower before you can 
really use most of it in practice.

But there are at least two attempts to build ES6 compilers that work 
today. There's TypeScript (Microsoft), which adds a lot of ES6 
proposals, including classes and the arrow operator, but also adds a lot 
more strictness and static typing (not part of ES6). There's also 
Traceur-compiler (Google?), which I haven't looked at as much, but which 
does similar things without the static type support (I think).
