Name        : vala
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 0.5.6
Release     : 1.fc10
URL         : http://live.gnome.org/Vala
Summary     : A modern programming language for GNOME
Description :
Vala is a new programming language that aims to bring modern programming
language features to GNOME developers without imposing any additional
runtime requirements and without using a different ABI compared to
applications and libraries written in C.

valac, the Vala compiler, is a self-hosting compiler that translates
Vala source code into C source and header files. It uses the GObject
type system to create classes and interfaces declared in the Vala source
code. It's also planned to generate GIDL files when gobject-
introspection is ready.

The syntax of Vala is similar to C#, modified to better fit the GObject
type system.
