New release of 8th: a secure, cross-platform prog language

Sun Nov 08, 2015 6:20 pm

8th 1.2.0 released

This release brings a number of features and improvements, such as MySQL connectivity, PDF output, more flexible GUI containers and much more.

If you've not yet heard of 8th: it's a secure, cross-platform programming language which is a derivative of Forth. It strives to let you write the same exact code for mobile, desktop, server and embedded platforms. It is a commercial product, with free and paid versions.

Currently, applications written in 8th can run on Windows, Linux and OS X desktops, Android and iOS mobile platforms and Raspberry Pi (and some other) embedded ARM systems.

Did they have Fifth through Seventh and then get it right on 8th? I think I've heard of Fifth, actually. A bit like WD40, Formula 401 and VO5. Reminds me of the joke about systemd that I keep telling but no one else finds funny, that I'm waiting for systeme.
