I don't get it:

From Traceur site: Traceur is a JavaScript.next-to-JavaScript-of-today compiler
From atscript-playground site:  Traceur Transpiles AtScript code into regular ES5 

Does Traceur start with ES6, Atscript, or are they the same?
Thanks for the clarification!

Traceur supports ES6, some ES7 features as well as some AtScript features.

Thanks for you response!  If you could answer a few other simple questions, I'd really appreciate it:

1.  Is Traceur the primary or only AtScript compiler?

2.  Does Traceur support ES6, ES7, and AtScript via a compiler switch or or is it just the addition of all of the features you mentioned?

(The answers may lead to some additional short question but I will be as brief as possible.  Thank you.)

Thanks you!

I'm not sure what you mean here?

We have options for each individual feature but we also have a meta
option for atscript which enables the individual features atscript
uses.

Some group (Google?) is developing AtScript.  AtScript (I suppose) is a language definition.  Is the implementation that the AtScript development group is using Taceur, or do they have another implementation?

Thanks!

The primary implementation was done in Traceur but I think there are
plans to do similar things to Closure Compiler and TypeScript but I'll
let those teams speak for that (don't take my word on it).
