I've switched my Rasberry Pi 3 Desktop Setup (PiTop Ceed) to FreeBSD 13.0-RC1 (coming from NixOS Linux).

This seems to be a nice Lisp that integrates well into the Python ecosystem

It also proves that there can be new short names for programming languages that are search-able on the Internet

New simple 64-bit native-code Forth system running on AMD64  

Anton Ertl is working on a new Forth system written in amd64 assembly. The main goal of fforth is to demonstrate modern Forth implementation techniques, in particular: header structures that directly represent, e.g., compilation semantics and recognizers

It is work in progress and can be found on Github: https://github.com/AntonErtl/fforth
