> On another note, Groovy is another great and fast language that runs on the JVM and works very well in the scripting space

But the same versioning issue exists for Apache Groovy (2 or 3 ?) that exists for Perl (5 or 6 ?). The Groovy PMC seem to be handling the issue, though, by slowing down the development of Groovy 3 to a crawl so it won't ever ship.

Oh, and calling Groovy "fast" is a bit of a stretch. It hardly matters anyway because scripting for classes written in Java doesn't need "fast".
