Just curious, what do you think are some of the emerging coding languages (in terms of popularity or age) or "buzz words" right now? For example, Ruby on Rails, Ajax etc. I've been thinking of adding a new section that caters to them.

Completely new:
Boo: http://boo.codehaus.org/

Major changes, buzz:
C++0x: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C++0x
C# 3.0: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C_Sharp#C.23_3.0_new_language_features

The ubiquitous "let's do it right this time, guys!" revisions to the popular scripting languages, periodically recurring buzz:
Perl 6
Ruby 2 (Rube Rite)
Python 3 (aka Python 3000)

Ruby because of Rails
Haskell because of PUGS
Erlang because parallelism matters
C# because .NET is Microsoft's path ahead
JavaScript 2 because that's my pond to swim in

For example, Ruby on Rails, Ajax
AJAX is not a language.

AJAX is not a language.

Yep, but is is a buzz word.
