Via LTU Discussion
They've finally done it -- provided the long-promised release of Clean 2.0 under an LGPL license.
I think this is important news because:
- Clean is a pragmatic implementation of a pure, lazy, functional language (very much like Haskell.)
- It's seen actual production/industrial use, and reflects the needs of working programmers (i.e., is not soley focused on investigation of language constructs and research.)
- It's another good example of a company Open Sourcing a key technology to aid in its adoption.
Hmmm. Perhaps a Debian package will be forthcoming soon?
