Ioke 0 released

I am very happy to announce the first release of Ioke!

Ioke is a dynamic language targeted at the Java Virtual Machine. It’s been designed from scratch to be a highly flexible general purpose language. It is a prototype-based programming language that is inspired by Io, Smalltalk, Lisp and Ruby.

Programming guide:

Ioke 0 is the first release of Ioke, and as such is not production ready. I would appreciate if people tried it out and reported bugs, thoughts and ideas.

- Strong, dynamic typing
- Prototype based object orientation
- Homoiconic language
- Simple syntax
- Powerful macro facilities
- Condition system
- Developed using TDD
- Documentation system that combines documentation with specs
- Wedded to the JVM
