The Rust Language
Rust is systems programming languages being developed by Mozilla. It’s very preliminary work, but the list of features suggests an interesting intersection of features. I’m particularly excited by the control over memory layout that Rust gives to the programmer, but it also has massive concurrency, structural typing, and the “ability to define complex invariants that hold over data structures” in its bag of tricks.
The main developer is Graydon Hoare, with contributions from heroes-to-the-Internet Dave Herman and Brendan Eich amongst others.
