Safe systems language

Backend framework
Our review

What we like

Designed to be an easy systems language. Provides low-level control over memory (without GC) whilst still offering safety and avoiding ownership. Uses result types for error handling. Compilation metadata included with source code to avoid needing to rebuild every time. Has a built in module system.

What we don't like

It’s still experimental and some core features like memory management aren’t final yet.
