Very interesting language.
Thank you for mentioning it here.

Compiling from the github-sources was easy.

Will explore it during the next days.

Seems not to be very specific to statistics, but good for math in general.

Not sure, if it might make sense to combine R and Julia in the long run (I mean: combining via providing interfaces between them, calling the one via the other, merging code or using libs from the one or the other from each side).

Ciao,
