vala by Juumlarg Billeter is a new programming language that aims to bring modern programming language features to GNOME developers without imposing any additional runtime requirements and without using a different API compared to applications and libraries written in C.
Vala 0.9.7 supports modern language features as the following:
Interfaces
Properties
Signals
Foreach
Lambda expressions
Type inference for local variables
Generics
Non-null types
Assisted memory management
Type modules (Plugins)
Vala [vala0.9.7.exe] is designed to allow access to GObject-based libraries, without any runtime bindings.
Each to be used library requires a Vala - 0MB API file at compile-time, containing the class and method declarations in Vala 0.9.7 syntax. Vala currently comes with experimental bindings for GLib and gtk . It's planned to provide generated bindings for the full GNOME Platform at a later stage.
Using classes and methods written in Vala from an application written in C is not difficult. The Vala library only has to install the generated header files and C applications may then access the GObject-based API of the Vala library as usual.
It should also be easily possible to write a bindings generator for access to Vala libraries from applications written in e. g. C# as the Vala parser is written as a library, so that all compile-time information is available when generating a binding.
