The Future of Newspeak

Several people have asked me when Newspeak will be released. Well, I still don’t know, but at least now I know it will be released. Cadence has generously agreed to make Newspeak available as open source software under the Apache 2.0 license.

We will be publishing a draft spec for Newspeak soon; I say draft because I expect Newspeak to continue to evolve substantially for the next year at least, and because the initial spec will necessarily be incomplete.

It will be a while before we are ready to make a proper public release of Newspeak. In the meantime, I’ve gathered some information on my personal web site. We plan to set up an official Newspeak web site in the near future.
