For some time I've been working on a new functional programming language
(Genyris) - the goal is to create a language which embraces the open
world assumption and SW ideas. The language also aims to be a useful
general-purpose language. 

So far it has objects belonging to multiple classes, URIs for symbols
and classes are assigned to objects at runtime. There are no
constructors. Symbols have properties. The next challenge is to convert
from singular properties for symbols to multi-value properties. This
presents challenges from a language design point of view. 

I would love to hear from people interested in helping with or mentoring
this little project. Maybe even share publishing of a papers. It would
be great to just to have help locating bugs in the implementation. 

There's an introductory document and executable here
