Sleep is a Perl-inspired scripting language for the Java platform. Sleep has its own library of functions for performing common tasks as well as being able to utilize the Java class library. Sleep includes closures, coroutines, built-in debugging, and it is very extensible.

Release Notes: This release smooths several issues for multi-threaded scripts. A &sum function was added for computing the sum of an array. The &values function was updated to extract specific keys from a hash. Predicates were added for testing if a string is upper or lowercase. The documentation was updated as well.
Release Notes: Debug messages provide more detail on proxy objects. Ordered hashes no longer serialize their miss and remove policies. An inadvertent shared reference issue with values from ordered hash policies has been fixed. The cast function can now create empty arrays. Sleep can now access object fields declared in a parent class.
Release Notes: Imports from third party jars now affect the system classpath. Foreach loop now works with Java iterators. A bug with taint mode was fixed. Scope functions now complain about incorrect use.
Release Notes: Sublist corruption by the splice function was fixed. The values function now omits null values. The scope functions were sped up. A compile time check was added for key/value pair sequences missing a separator.
Release Notes: Minor fixes to the index operator implementation. This release completes the 2.1 development cycle.
