Surinx - a Dynamically Typed, Java-Based Language Using Ruby Syntax

Surinx (formerly "Juby", name axed because of pejorative connotation) looks very interesting. See Charlie's post about it or the discussion about it on stackoverflow. Surinx relies on invokedynamic, so it requires Java 7.

Note that Java 7 milestones seem to indicate it might be Spring 2010 before a release candidate and Summer 2010 before a final version of Java 7 is available (assuming that it takes a few months for the first RC to come out after the last milestone release).

Looks like Charlie is planning on axing Surinx, and Duby will gain dynamic invocation at some point in the future.
