As a CoffeeScript fan things were looking pretty bleak a year or two ago. In particular there was zero momentum for new features.

How things have changed! Major kudos to Geoffrey Booth and all involved. Coffee's beautiful syntax combined with async/await has taken a lot of the 'ick' away from coding in JS, at least for me.

Exactly. I'm glad to see people arent absolutely shitting on it here like they have been over the past year or two, which is when I started using it,

having used Coffeescript almost exclusively (in the Node.js world) for something like 6 years, async/await was the only feature i have been gnashing my teeth waiting for, but i wasn't even that impatient because i have also been using Fibers for just as long.
