Syllable, AtheOS Norman Deppenbroek has ported NewLisp to Syllable Desktop. NewLisp is a variety of the Lisp programming language meant for scripting, with a friendlier syntax and a practical approach. Also, newer versions of Objective Caml (3.10.2) and PERL (5.10.0) were ported. Kelly Wilson got OCaml to supports PThreads on Syllable Desktop. The new PERL is adapted to the new system structure of Syllable 0.6.5 and should be better at finding PERL extension modules. XML::Parser and Net::SSLeay were also ported and rebuilt for PERL 5.10.0. Binary packages for all these ports are available here.

The Syllable devs are going well - a very nice-looking O.S.

Kudos to them for "daring to be different" too - they're using "Orca" (an OSS Rebol clone) as the main scripting language.
