June Headline: Haskell is rapidly approaching the top 20

    Last month we asked ourselves the question what language could become  
the next big new programming language. We suggested several candidates  
such as Scala, Erlang and Clojure. Clearly, the new thing was expected to  
come from the functional programming field. A functional language not  
explicitly mentioned was Haskell. And this month it was Haskell that  
jumped from #35 to #25. Looking at the TIOBE trend graph of Haskell  
(starting in 2003) it shows a constant rise, with peaks in 2006, 2010 and  
now in 2012. This certainly sounds promising.
