Some PowerShell essentials:

0. Activate the "RemoteSigned" execution policy for yourself:
PS> Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned -Scope CurrentUser
1. Install PsGet: http://psget.net/
2. Install PSReadline:
PS> Import-Module PsGet
PS> Install-Module PSReadline
3. Activate PsGet and PSReadline in your profile for interactive use, and add some additional Linux/Bash-like keybindings. Create $env:USERPROFILE\Documents\WindowsPowerShell\profile.ps1:
if ($host.Name -eq 'ConsoleHost') {
Import-Module PsGet

Import-Module PSReadline
Set-PSReadlineOption -EditMode Emacs
Set-PSReadlineKeyHandler -Chord 'Shift+PageUp' `
-Function ScrollDisplayUp
Set-PSReadlineKeyHandler -Chord 'Shift+PageDown' `
-Function ScrollDisplayDown
Set-PSReadlineKeyHandler -Chord 'Ctrl+LeftArrow' `
-Function ShellBackwardWord
Set-PSReadlineKeyHandler -Chord 'Ctrl+RightArrow' `
-Function ShellForwardWord
}
Note, though, that the presence of even just an empty profile.ps1 significantly slows down PowerShell startup for me. (But it's still much faster than the ISE.)

"[create Pyret] is a programming language designed to serve as an outstanding choice for programming education while exploring the confluence of scripting and functional programming".

Built mainly by [create Daniel Patterson] and [create Joe Gibbs Politz] of the PLT group (headed by Shriram Krishnamurthi) at Brown University.

First glance: mixing a non-sexpr (somewhat Lua-esque) syntax with chiefly [create Racket]-inspired semantics, and dynamic typing with strongly integrated facilities for dynamic checking (testing) and efforts towards gradual typing. Very interesting and promising!

Nice features for a modern multi-person chat tool: Flat-threaded replies. User mentions. Permanent history. Searchable history. Limited editability for quick typo corrections. Integration, integration, integration. Permalinks (net-native). Lightweight markup including links (more integration). Code formatting (more integration).

(Just a quick braindump.)

The sources for the REBOL 3 alpha were opened up a month ago, rekindling the interest of many who got turned away by the former stagnation. One issue encountered regularly, is that to play with Rebol 3 right away, you had to build from source yourself. Well, no more! I'm happy to announce fully automated builds of Rebol 3 binaries along with a website for conveniently downloading them:

- http://www.rebolsource.net/

While these builds are unofficial in as far as they are not provided (or endorsed) by REBOL Technologies, they are built from the unmodified mainline R3 sources.
