There is Delight too:

But I agree, one disadvantage (and one advantage) the D language is
its significant syntactic and semantic compatibility with C.
I like the syntax of Nimrod, but I think Nimrod designer has to work
more on data parallelism and higher level forms of parallelism.
At the moment D language has not enough data parallelism features for
scientific programming purposes.
