Processing 1.0 β

Processing is a programming language and environment for people who want to program images, animation, and sound. It is used by students, artists, designers, architects, researchers, and hobbyists for learning, prototyping, and production. It is created to teach fundamentals of computer programming within a visual context and to serve as a software sketchbook and professional production tool. Processing is developed by artists and designers as an open-source alternative to commercial software tools in the same domain.

Downloading the 6Mb dmg of Processing 1.0 β for the Mac OS X version as I write. Produces Java applets from a simplified control language. Very trendy Web site. The name of the project tends to worsen the signal to noise ratio on Web searches though.
