Introduction to Xtend - Java Unleashed
Welcome to the second issue of the Eclipse Newsletter. This month's theme celebrates the release of Xtend 2.4, which is available for download starting today!
Eclipse Xtend is a new statically-typed programming language that aims to be a better language for Java developers. Xtend adds to Java features like lambdas, operator overloading and extension methods, while reducing the verbosity of the Java language. In this newsletter we feature articles on Xtend's support for Android development, Xtend's new Active Annotations and how Xtend can be used to write JavaFX applications.
Enjoy and let us know what you think about Xtend.
