PROGRAMMING --
Developers at Facebook today announced the initial specification for the Hack programming language.

Last year Facebook launched Hack, a new programming language derived from PHP and powered by their HHVM software. The Hack specification serves as official documentation for those wanting to come out with their own Hack implementation rather than relying upon HHVM. The Hack specification complements the existing Hack programming documentation.

This specification can be explored via GitHub and more details can be found via the HHVM.com announcement.
