The recent announcement of the Calypso project for Wordpress that is based on Node.js and React.js libraries raised some concerns that Wordpress is switching to the JavaScript language.

This was one of the main topics discussed by Manuel Lemos and Arturs Sosins in the episode 61 of the Lately in JavaScript podcast.

They also talked Adobe stopping to produce tools for Flash applications in favor of HTML5 and JavaScript solutions, a new standard API to access Bluetooth devices from HTML5 and JavaScript pages, Firefox marking login forms as insecure if they are processed via non-HTTPS pages, among other JavaScript related topics of interest.
