Clojure 1.6.0 / 1.7.0 Alpha 4
A dynamic programming language for the Java Virtual Machine
Clojure is designed to be a general-purpose language, combining the approachability and interactive development of a scripting language with an efficient and robust infrastructure for multithreaded programming.
Clojure is a compiled language - it compiles directly to JVM bytecode, yet remains completely dynamic.
Furthermore, Clojure provides easy access to the Java frameworks, with optional type hints and type inference, to ensure that calls to Java can avoid reflection.
Clojure is a dialect of Lisp, and shares with Lisp the code-as-data philosophy and a powerful macro system, and is predominantly a functional programming language that features a rich set of immutable, persistent data structures.

What's New in version 1.7.0 Alpha 4
- NEW AND IMPROVED FEATURES:
- Transducers is a new way to decouple algorithmic transformations from their application in different contexts. Transducers are functions that transform reducing functions to build up a "recipe" for transformation.
