A rundown of constructors in Ceylon - coming soon in Ceylon 1.2.
 
A really long time in the making...
Since the earliest versions of Ceylon, we've supported a streamlined syntax for class initialization where the parameters of a class are listed right after the class name, and initialization logic goes directly in the body of the class. class Color(shared Integer rgba) { assert (0 <= rgba ...

Destructuring is coming in the next release!
The next release of Ceylon features an interesting range of new language features, including constructors, if and switch expression, let and object expressions, and destructuring of tuples and entries. In this post, I'm going to describe our new syntax for destructuring.

A roundup of some things we're working on. Let us know what you think...
We've been spending time discussing the priorities for development of Ceylon 1.1.5 and 1.2, including soliciting community feedback. The plan is still suprisingly fluid right now, but there are a number of things that we've already started working on, or have decided to start working on, ...

A cool little pattern I discovered a while back that makes use of reified generics, union/intersection types, variance, generics, and type aliases.
The essence of the famous observer/observable pattern is that you have an observable object that produces events of various kinds, and one or more observer objects that register themselves as interested in notification when these events occur. Of course, we represent each kind of event as a type ...

The #Ceylon team is now planning development of 1.1.5 and 1.2. Let us know what matters to you.
 
We need your feedback on what Ceylon should do next!
With the release of Ceylon 1.1, we've reached a point where we need to do some serious thinking about what are our priorities for the development of Ceylon 1.1.5, 1.2, and beyond. I definitely don't yet have a crystal clear vision of what is going to be in 1.2, so we're also looking for ...

Story
Tagline
A modern language with a powerful type system
Introduction
"Say more, more clearly"

Ceylon is a language for writing large programs in teams.

It has a powerful static type system that prevents many bugs while letting you express more, more easily: union types, intersection types, higher order functions, mixin inheritance, and enumerated types.

It is a whole platform with a modern SDK designed from scratch. It runs on both Java and JavaScript virtual machines, bridging the gap between client and server. Ceylon is fully interoperable with Java and the Java SDK.

And modularity is at the very core of the language, SDK and tooling. The compiler produces module archives which are then distributed via a next-generation repository architecture with Ceylon Herd as its social focus point.
