The name change happened just one year ago so Babel is one year old with the release of version 6.
Babel 6 takes this plugin approach a step further. The entire language processing has been modularized and the internal transformers have been converted into plugins using the standard API. This makes the language processing much easier to customize. All of the plugins are optional and so it isn't an ES2015 to JS5 compiler by default. However, you can install groups of plugins to provide different feature sets in a single operation using the new presets facility.
The API has also been improved and this is a breaking change.
