The pioneering researchers at INRIA pushed the boundaries of computer programming forward again this week by announcing the first public release of their next-generation concurrent programming language JoCaml.
The JoCaml language draws upon the success of INRIA's OCaml language by augmenting it with a native implementation of the Join calculus to provide a robust mechanism for exploiting concurrency in OCaml programs.
The JoCaml authors present a beautiful distributed ray tracer among their examples, which is derived from our own work.
Combined with core OCaml developments such as a completely revamped camlp4 implementation and the recent surge in new users, the future looks bright for OCaml!
