Squirrel is a high level imperative/OO programming language, designed
to be a powerful scripting tool that fits in the size, memory
bandwidth, and real-time requirements of applications like games.
Although Squirrel offers a wide range of features like:

Open Source zlib/libpng licence
dynamic typing
higher order functions
cooperative threads(coroutines)
tail recursion
exception handling
automatic memory management (CPU bursts free; mixed approach ref
both compiler and virtual machine fit together in about 6k lines of
C++ code.
optional 16bits characters strings

the new version fixes several bugs and adds full blown coroutines.
