Just stumbled upon this new programming language called Vala. It's developed by the GNOME project and from what I can tell its purpose is to provide a simple and powerful laguage for, primarily, GNOME developers. Vala is in some ways a wrapper language around C libraries like GLib, GIO and other GNOME related libraries.

I wrote a blog post about it: http://www.poppa.se/blog/vala-the-new-programming-language-for-gnome/

And here's the project's page at GNOME: http://live.gnome.org/Vala

I think I will port my Roxen Application Launcher for Linux to Vala, since it's written in C# I think it won't be to hard to accomplish.

Since GNOME is a big project and there already seems to be a few GNOME applications written in Vala I think it has some potentials. We'll see.

Happy coding ;)
