Enter the Oxygene Programming Language
It seems that RemObjects Software has now declared Oxygene
as it's own programming language. While those of you may debate what constitutes a programming language versus a dialect used by a separate language-based product, you can read more about Oxygene 5 on the RemObject website at www.remobjects.com
The Oxygene compiler started as an "Object Pascal compiler for .NET" called Chrome which at the time more accurately supported the then growing .NET platform than Delphi for .NET did at the time. It was available as a standalone command line .NET compiler or was also offered as a suite that used the Visual Studio IDE Shell to make a more complete development environment.
The next generation of Chrome
would have the current name Oxygene at which time Embarcadero exclusively licensed the next version of the .NET compiler for it's new Delphi Prism
product which would act as a solution to their failed Delphi for .NET
Oxygene is not on it's 5th major version of the compiler and with it RemObjects seems to be wanting to establish it's own branch of the Object Pascal programming language with it. This may have merit as there has been a lot of new language constructs that have gone into this spin-off of the language that better handle managed code on such platforms as .NET/Mono and Java.
