What about the new language from Apple?

I read some post about a new language that will be replace the Objective-c
called xLang.

Any idea? This can affect the next releases of Rev?


We’re leaving this one open to the floor for comment, but would like to note
that operating systems must also grow, and development environments must
continue to re-invent themselves as rationale to give this one air time, but
there's a rumor Apple's developing a new dev language to succeed
DF reports via Michael Tsai one Jesper, who writes:

“After watching the eminently early and freely available WWDC 2010 session
videos, I think my scales have finally tipped. It is my belief that Apple is
definitely working on a new language to surpass Objective-C as their
intended, primary, publicly recommended programming language, which I will
call “xlang”.”

Clang, according to Wikipedia,  is a compiler front end for the C, C++, and
Objective-C programming languages. It uses the Low Level Virtual Machine
(LLVM) as its back end. Its goal is to offer a replacement to the GNU
Compiler Collection (GCC). Development is sponsored by Apple, and the source
code is licensed using a BSD-like open-source license.

This could be part of the company’s plans as developers seem to be beginning
to wax lyrical on how Objective-C may need tweaking.  

Your thoughts?
