still a few decades away

Since C++11/14/17 it seems they are seriously trying to make C++ be a lot more like Javascript (almost in a rush).

On the other hand, since ES5/6, the other guys are trying to make Javascript a lot more like C++ (trying too hard really).

I do see a beautiful language in the intersection. But it will take a decade or two for this seismic collision happen and a couple more for its aftermath to settle and solidify in a serious candidate to a language we can be proud of.
