Hello everyone,

Today we have officially released Elixir.

Elixir is a programming language built on top of the Erlang. It is
homoiconic, allowing meta-programming via macros, it also supports
polymorphism via protocols (similar to Clojure's), dynamic records and a
module reference mechanism.

Elixir aims to stay compatible with Erlang, so it shares the same bytecode
and data types. This means you can invoke Erlang code from Elixir (and
vice-versa) without any conversion or performance hit. This allows a
developer to mix the expressiveness of Elixir with the robustness and
performance of Erlang.

The getting started guide is here:

We also have a fast crash course for Erlang developers:

If anyone is interested in the release background, here is the announcement:
