Mission Statement: The goal is to specify a programming language called Babel-17 and to provide implementations of it for all major modern computing platforms and an IDE based on the Netbeans platform. Babel-17 is conceived as a dynamically-typed language for functional structured programming which supports information hiding and data abstraction via an object-oriented module system. Babel-17 strives to be a beautiful language.
The new and shiny version of Babel-17 is Babel-17 v0.2. There is a preliminary spec of it available, a continuation-passing interpreter running on the Java platform and a Netbeans 6.8 plugin are in the making.
Babel-17 v0.1 was a first quick attempt and is totally obsolete now, so don't even bother looking at it.
The blog The Phlegmatic Programmer has a couple of thoughts on the design of Babel-17.
