Subject Re: [javascript] cant get timestamps in arrow 2.0

I don't know the support for the compression codecs in Javascript, but i
don't think anyone has attempted to implement them.

I couldn't find the compression feature listed on the library status docs

But we should add a line item for it.  Today, I think only C++ (and
libraries that bind to it) have compression implemented.  I think a new PR
for java was just opened in the last few days.
