Fan: Next Generation Java?

Fan is a new language for the JVM that aims to be an evolution in language design, not a revolution. It is statically typed and performs at native speed. A key goal has been to fix many of the problems that have been identified in Java over the last 15 years. Fan is fully object oriented, has closures (but is not heavily functional.
