General Development Opa, the new open source programming language for web applications, just released its 0.9.0 'S4' version. Opa is a single programming language for specifying client code, server code and database code. The new release introduces two major features: A new default syntax that resembles JavaScript and was asked for by the community, and an abstraction layer for the NoSQL database MongoDB. Features that were previously supported by the internal Opa database are now available with the fast-growing, scalable NoSQL database. Together, Opa and MongoDB, provide a way to develop complex web applications and have them scale out easily. Many other smaller features have been added, as the number of contributors to the code on github grows.

I think I have the meaning behind the name now. I thought it was german or something.

OPA is from a french company and OPA in french mean takeover bid. This make sense.

"opa" in Spanish is a derogatory term that means "person with decreased mental capabilities".
