Pliant programming language GPL’ed

Jerry Fass writes:

With his release of Pliant version 11, Pliant’s author, Hubert
Tonneau, abandons his own, more restrictive version of an open
source license (“Pliant copyright and license”) and now adopts the
more liberal GPL version 2. Pliant thus joins the growing ranks of
fully GPL’ed software.

Pliant is described as more of a new generation of programming
language than an improvement in a given language family. Main idea:
instead of making a new language with a few new interesting
features, make a very tiny, highly modular language with a trivial
syntax, where most advanced features can be written in the language
itself, as modules.
