    Some of the problems have been already fixed due to our reports, but some of them haven’t been accepted as they involved some overhead on the performance in the general case. Because of this we have forked the compiler and started adjusting it for our needs ourselves. Our works mainly involve the optimization tweaks and updating the backend to EcmaScript6 (instead of 5). For instance, we have implemented a much more aggressive tail call optimizer, increased strictness of AST traversals and completely rewritten the code generation for pattern match alternatives.
