The real news for this group is at the very end...
IFCX Wings 0.7 is released.
The Wings evaluator will now display output during long-running scripts.
Although it still takes a while to get G4OO, Wings, and this pop-up
console loaded the first time, it is very handy for lengthy processes
such as the initial download of JAR dependencies by Ivy.
Wings has gained built-in support for several cool languages:
Scheme - Lambda done right.
OCaml - Real types *and* objects.
Adenine - LISP for graphs.
That is in addition to those previously supported:
Groovy - Of course. The most productive language for the JVM.
Ruby - Good for slippers.
Python - A language only a mother (and Jim Baker) could love.
Scala - The compiler seems nice.
Haskell - Functional goodness (and lots of tutorials).
There are another dozen or more (including Java, BeanShell, PHP, OGNL,
XQuery, ...) that either just don't have built-in support (but Wings
allows users to add them easily) or have some small bug and just need
someone to test them out.
P.S. While Google Chrome via Parallels Coherence gets the job done
reliably, CodeWeavers Chromium is extremely promising.
