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.
@codesections It lists K&R C in 1972, C90 in 1988-9, C99, C11, C18 in appropriate years.
Now, what's annoying is it only lists Scheme in 1975, not the R[1-7]RS since then.

There's probably some logic to it, but it escapes me at the level of effort I'm willing to invest on causal curiosity.
@codesections Well, wikipedia is a bunch of kids role-playing as encyclopedia editors. So they know the stuff that's easy to find. If you want & know more, edit it yourself and then prepare for weeks or months of idiots vandalizing your changes.
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)
