Alpha 1 is released

Today marks a huge milestone for the Play programming language. Alpha 1 is now released.

The goal behind alpha 1 is not to be a complete language which can be used for creating working applications, rather it is meant to give a good impression of what writing programs in Play would be like.

Play alpha 1 comes with a, mostly, working type system and many of the language features which will be there in a future 1.0.0 version.

It is also the first open-source release of Play, and marks the point in time from which all development will take place in the open.

Alongside alpha 1 is the release of a playground, for trying out the language without installing anything, as well as source code management, bug tracker, wiki and forum using the fossil scm tool.
