Project Fortress is Wrapping Up

I was interested to learn that Project Fortress, the programming language research project from Sun (now Oracle) was wrapping up:

I was an intern on Project Fortress during the summer of 2008. Fortress was an ambitious language project that attempted to incorporate a number of advanced and experimental features.

I'm sorry to see the language be wrapped up without a JVM or native code compiler, but I understand there were a number of technical challenges, many of which I encountered during the course of my internship. Best of luck to these folks on their future projects!
