Version 8.0 will be officially available when it ships with the stable version of Chrome 80, planned to be released in several weeks. If you want to try out the new features sooner, you can either use
git checkout -b 8.0 -t branch-heads/8.0, which requires an active V8 checkout, or subscribe to the Chrome Beta channel.
V8’s Twitter followers are excited about v8, so let’s take a look at the new features!
V8 hits its long-awaited v8.0, now with optional chaining, nullish coalescing, faster higher-order builtins — oh and 40% less memory use thanks to pointer compression, no big deal.
