TechCrunch reports that Google has released a new programming language called Go.

They describe it as Python meets C++:

Here is the language site:

Has anyone here played with Go yet?

I have been hankering for the easy development practices of a scripting language like Python or Ruby in a language that compiles to fast binary code.

cf. Discussion of Python's long term performance limitations:

Anyone know of an alternative that provides the best of all worlds?
