Just heard about the Julia language and wanted to make sure it's on 
everybody's radar:


It's the first really decent language designed for scientists. Seems 
impressive to me, there's a few Cython features:

  - Dynamic typing with optional static types
  - Call C directly

And then comes:

  - JIT
  - Templates
  - "Green" threading/coroutiens
  - Multiple dispatch (yay!)
  - Lisp-like macros and other metaprogramming facilities
  - Designed for parallelism and distributed computation
