Today, we are excited to announce our newest members of our community-supported languages, Crystal and Perl 6!
Crystal is a programming language that focuses on developer productivity, type safety, and execution performance. It is statically checked and compiles to native (machine) code. It combines global type inference, compile-time macros, compile-time type introspection, automatic union types, and Ruby-like syntax, allowing quick prototyping and generating efficient computer programs. It provides a Garbage Collector, uses LLVM as its backend, and doesn’t run on a Virtual Machine.
Perl 6 is the next generation in the family of Perl programming languages, and a sister language to the well-established Perl 5. With a release candidate expected in September, and the first release by December, it’s a great time to start testing your Perl 6 programs.
