New vector language: Glee
Bryan writes in the discussion group:

There never seem to be a lot of discussion about Vector languages here, so I figured I'd point at a new one under development: Glee(warning: awful frame-based navigation on site), found on the Jsoftware forum (not linkable, requires authorisation to view archives!)

Vector languages (or array processing languages) are fun. I really don't know why they never seem to get much attention.

Why bother with special purpose languages? I wrote a Lisp macro that implemented Einstein tensor notation (repeated subscripted indexes meant implied summation, etc. )

Ken, you're missing the point. Apl/J/K/Glee are general purpose languages. It's just a different style of programming. They're not meant to simply be languages for doing vector math.
