Julia: a language for technical computing
Hello,

the thread about tuples reminded about Julia because it supports 
tuples natively and its syntax for (de)constructing tuples is 
simple: http://julialang.org/manual/functions/

It's a very different language from D, being dynamically typed 
(but with optionnal static typing and multiple dispatch) but it's 
still interesting: opensource (MIT licensed) and 1.0 release 
recently, so for those who like languages:

http://julialang.org/

Best regards,
renoX

Re: Julia: a language for technical computing
I'm not impressed.  Sage is superior in many ways, and many who use
things like Matlab or Mathematica are moving to Sage.

Here are some old benchmarks:

They should include Sage in their High-Performance JIT Compiler comparison.
