O.P. Is there any plans update javascript library to more up-to-date version?
Hello.

It seems current JS version implemented in MP!L is very outdated. Missing so many "basic" features...

Any plans to update it?

I assume you mean Jscript

I don't know if the new versions offer anything worth upgrading for.

All I can find is that anything lower than Jscript 9.0 is similar to Javascript 1.5, with 9.0 being alike Javascript 1.8.5

May be worht looking into, but maybe for a new major version of Plus! (A long way off), although it could tie in quite well with going back to "plug-ins"

IIRC, the version of JScript depends on what you have installed in Windows*, not on Plus!; Plus! uses what is available.

* EDIT: to be more exact it mostly depens on your version of Windows Internet Explorer.

But would Plus! need to do anything to take advantage of any new features etc?

Somehow I think OP has got confused between JScript and JScript .Net. :/ V@no, would you mind explaining what basic features the JScript you're talking about is missing?

No.

It mostly depends on which version of Internet Explorer is installed.

MSIE 5.5 came with JScript 5.5
MSIE 6.0, Win XP, Win XP SP1 and Win XP SP2 came with JScript 5.6
MSIE 7.0, Win XP SP3 and Vista came with JScript 5.7
MSIE 8.0 came with JScript 5.8

The so called 'JScript versions 7.0' and higher are all .NET flavors and something completely different than JScript.
JScript 7.0 is actually either 'JScript .NET 2002' or 'JScript .NET 2003' (depending on what .NET framework you use).

Moreover, the latest version of JScript is still 5.8 and everything of JScript is supported in Plus! scripting since it simply is the platform which Plus! uses. So I don't see what other 'basic features' there might be missing.

Quite possible.

And with that said: JScript (what Plus! uses as its scripting platform) is not the same as JScript.NET, just as C++ is not the same as C# (.NET) or VB is not the same as VB.NET.

Blame MS for the naming confusion :p
(also show that it is important to call the programming languages by their correct name; more than often I see posts on various forums about VB or C, while in fact people are talking about the .NET flavors)
