During the last 30 years, Wolfram Research was working on a new multi-paradigm programming language. Please, welcome, — Wolfram Language! The language is very large, with emphasis on functional programming, symbolic computation, and rule-based programming, touching on numerous domains, often specialized. As an example, it includes built-in functions for generating and running Turing machines, creating graphics and audio.
It will be bundled with the system software installed on every Raspberry Pi. Intel Edison, introduced at CES 2014, also integrates the language. The language will also be integrated in the Unity game engine.
Wolfram Research team is currently working on standardizing documentation, which is also huge. Nevertheless, incomplete pre-release already exists.
Here is a short video with Stephen Wolfram, introducing the Wolfram Language.
