Vala - A C#-Like Language for GNOME

Vala is a new programming language that aims to bring modern programming language features to GNOME developers without imposing any additional runtime requirements and without using a different ABI compared to applications and libraries written in C.

Looks very interesting, and almost identical to C#.

Anyways, it's worth having a brief glance at for anyone interested in new languages and all that jazz.

I heard about it when I stumbled across Synapse (launcher for Linux), which was written in Vala:
