The question I get asked a lot, is what makes Saffire different? The most honest answer: nothing. There is absolutely nothing that makes Saffire different from other language, because Saffire doesn’t do things different.

In the last blogpost I was talking about a new language in the making. Unfortunately, writing a complete new language - from scratch - isn’t as easy and takes a fair bit of time. During this development process, I will try and blog a bit on the things we are developing, the problems we are facing and the solutions we are implementing.
