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.

The back end is fast but the front end is hilariously slow ...

With SQL performance, you can throw hardware to fix the problem ... with front end performance you can't do this.

The Opa stuff pays the jQuery Tax very heavily. It also uses tons of inline scripts.
