Recently looked around and the Vala/ Genie seemed the best of the C(ish) languages; most like this one seemed to offer little. (I found very limited documentation for Vala/ Genie and sadly it isn't clear what the road map is).

Aside from cherry picking a few benefits of established languages; it isn't really obvious what ObjectScript is trying to achieve.

It REALLY bugs me that there are so many software projects where the objective seems not to be thought out. If the objective is thought out then it often seems to be a closely secret; instead of being key public information which would help folk decide whether to use it, contribute to it or skip it.
