General Development "Vala is, in some sense, a new programming language. It’s syntax and structure leans heavily towards C#. As Jurg Billeter, the mastermind behind Vala, likes to put it; Vala is an amalgam of different C inspired languages, mostly C++ and C#. An though there is no mercury in this mixture, you'll find many a gold nugget in Vala."

The most important thing about Vala (according to me) is the GObject introspection stuff. Hopefully very soon it will be possible to write a library in Vala, autogenerate the introspection data, and seamlessly use the library from Python, Java, C#, whatever. Big plus.
