As of this writing, Ioke S is the next to latest release of the Ioke programming language.

Here's the original announcement:

Ioke S released

Ioke is a language that is designed to be as expressive as possible.
It is a dynamic language targeted at the Java Virtual Machine. It's
been designed from scratch to be a highly flexible general purpose
language. It is a prototype-based programming language that is
inspired by Io, Smalltalk, Lisp and Ruby.

Programming guide:

Ioke S is the second release of Ioke. It includes a large amount
of new features compared to Ioke 0. Among the most important are
syntactic macros, full regular expression support, for comprehensions,
aspects, cond and case, destructuring macros, and many more things.

Ioke S also includes a large amount of bug fixes, and also several 
example programs.


- Expressiveness first
- Strong, dynamic typing
- Prototype based object orientation
- Homoiconic language
- Simple syntax
- Powerful macro facilities
- Condition system
- Aspects
- Developed using TDD
- Documentation system that combines documentation with specs
- Wedded to the JVM

The many things added in Ioke S could not have been done without 
the support of several new contributors. I would like to call out 
and thank:
