My colleagues have released to DevLabs an incubation project: Axum (fka "Maestro").
"Axum aims to validate a safe and productive parallel programming model for .NET"

" Axum is a language that builds upon the architecture of the Web and principles of isolation, actors, and message-passing to increase application safety, responsiveness, scalability, and developer productivity.
Other advanced concepts we are exploring are data flow networks, asynchronous methods, and type annotations for taming side-effects."

After you visit the page and download the bits, head over to the dedicated Axum blog.
