Webgl2 just is a 2nd iteration of webgl witch is more like newer versions of opengl which can take advantage of newer graphics card features. It will be a while before it's as widespread as the current webgl. I'll maybe get more excited about it when webgl is better supported. Support on my system has been doing the opposite of advancing with newer versions of chrome and firefox completely blacklisting my graphics card so I can't use webgl at all unless I use older versions.

WebGL 2 doesn't add much useful for a 2D engine, other than perhaps full support for non-power-of-two textures, so we can finally ditch all power-of-two image restrictions, even on tiled backgrounds. Currently no browsers support it, but it should turn up in the next year or so I think.
