Recently – for various degrees of recent that is – people really seem to be into programming language design and development. You’ve probably all heard about Scala, Clojure and Go already, but here are some more new languages which may be new to you (descriptions taken from the projects’ websites):
- ANI, the experimental, high-performance, statically-safe, fully implicitly parallel, object-oriented, general-purpose dataflow programming language.
- Factor is a concatenative programming language where references to dynamically-typed values are passed between words (functions) on a stack. [It] is expressive, fast, supports interactive development and has a full-featured library.
- ooc, a modern, object-oriented, functional-ish, high-level, low-level, sexy programming language. It’s translated to pure C with a source-to-source compiler. It strives to be powerful, modular, extensible, portable, yet simple and fast.
- Yeti, ML style functional programming language, that runs on the JVM.
