I'm slightly bemused by this Wikipedia article that lists programming languages in chronological order.

According to the article, three of the five most recently released languages are C++, C, and Fortran


Now, I get that it's referring to new *versions* of those languages released in the past year or two. But it's not like other languages haven't *also* released new versions/editions. So I'm still not sure what's up with the list.


I do see the page seems it's fine to include language revisions for C,C++, Fortran, and such
But looks like Java have been over looked
(1.7 or just 7,1.8, 9, 10, 11, 13 etc. In recent times)
