"Cobra, a .Net-based programming language, is being readied for
open source release as an all-in-one solution to address multiple
needs in software development.
"Now in a beta stage of development, plans call for offering the
language as an open source offering later this month under the MIT
license and having a general, 1.0 release ready some time this
year, said Chuck Esterbrook, the author of Cobra. Cobra runs on
.Net and Novell's Mono, which enables .Net applications to run on
Linux, Solaris, Mac OS, and Windows.
