Hi Scalaists,

a new version of my Babel-17 programming language is available for download at http://www.babel-17.com .

The new v0.3 has many improvements and changes over the previous v0.2.1. Among the most important ones are:

- there is a module system now
- you can define your own types, and in tandem with the module system achieve encapsulation and abstraction
- (automatic) type conversion
- unit testing is supported by language features
- there is a new built-in type "real" for floating point interval arithmetic
- the way order is dealt with has changed
- the Netbeans Plugin now supports not only Babel-17 files, but also entire Babel-17 projects

Enjoy!

- Steven Obua

What does this have to do with Scala and why should we debate this?

Re: Babel-17 v0.3 is out

The language is very Scala-like from a syntax point of view. It is also purely functional, and I got the impression that many Scala people are interested in purely functional programming. So there is a chance that a fraction of the people on this mailing-list might be interested in this language.

It's not really meant to be debated here; you can do this better on the Babel-17 google group. It's more of an advertising email.

Hope that helps,

Steven

It can be debated whether this is related to Scala, hence the choice of list. ;-)

I don't mind the occasional announces of Steven, his language is interesting, even if I
just lack time to dig it.
