Async await does not compile as of 2.1.1596.0.
Can you please give ANY response as to when this feature can be expected to work.
I have made and seen a few questions about this, but get no response at all.
I have been waiting for quite some time for this feature (A major part of my toolkit is for AJAX RPC). I need that Syntax sugar...
Something like: var data = await service.GetData();
Or at least some kind of response so I can move on (either with or without duocode)
async/await was slightly improved but still has a partial support.
Currently we can suggest you to look at Promises or OnDone method pattern.
We are waiting for EcmaScript6 to be finalized as an official JS async/await support as well.
async/await is much more complex as just a "syntax sugar", it requires full state machine with advanced and very delicate exception handling implementation.
For example only in C# 6.0, await had become available in catch/finally block.
