JoCaml: concurrent programming

Another programming language I hear you say?

Well, yes. But as Tim Bray rightly points out, the way of the future will be distributed and parallel computing over lots of CPUs. Hence any way of easily splitting a big job into lots of small jobs is A Good Thing (TM).

Enter JoCaml. Currently leading the board in terms of speed for the Wide Finder project, its syntax is a little obscure, but at a quick glance appears more readable than Erlang's.

Unfortunately, JoCaml is actually a set of extensions to oCaml, and as of this writing, are only available in source form, i.e. no precompiled binaries for Windows :(

Still, one to keep an eye on!
