GNU --
Java Training Wheels has become the newest GNU package.

Java Training Wheels is described by its lead developer, Davin Pearson, in the inaugural GNU package announcement as "a less steep learning curve for learning to program in Java. Specifically there arae new keywords begin and end to replace Java's cumbersome { ... } construct. Also there are new keywords constructor, function, method, property and classVar, var, then, and, or, elseif, beginMain and endMain. The langauge is powered by a preprocessor that gives error diagnostics on problematic *.jtw code and also adds to the Java langauge a superfor macro and a file inclusion system much like the C langauage's preprocessor."

Java Training Wheels doesn't appear to have been migrated yet to GNU.org and for now is hosted here.
