|-An implementation of Newspeak on the Rubinius VM.|
|+What is Newspeak?|
|+Newspeak is a programming language in the Smalltalk/Self tradition by Gilad|
|+Bracha, Peter Ahe, Vassili Bykov, Eliot Miranda, Bill Maddox, and Yaron|
|+Kashai. See http://newspeaklanguage.org/.|
|+Newspeak is still an experimental language. Consequently, documentation for|
|+Newspeak is incomplete. A reference implementation runs in the Squeak system.|
|+There appear to be two primary references:|
|+ "The Newspeak Programming Platform" May 6, 2008|
|+ "Newspeak Programming Language Draft Specification v0.05" Dec 11, 2009|
|+What is Syme?|
|+Syme is an implementation of Newspeak that runs on the Rubinius VM.|
|+Rather than use the existing Newspeak parser, a bootstrap parser and compiler|
|+using Ruby are being written. The disadvantage of this is the effort to ensure|
|+that the parser matches the current implementation. The advantage is a|
|+bootstrap system for Newspeak independent of Squeak/Smalltalk.|
