Sure would be nice if the IDE supported CoffeeScript:  http://coffeescript.org.  Per your new language suggestions, here is more info:

The file type name. 
CoffeeScript

The filename extensions that are used by the file type (e.g. .vb for Visual Basic).
.coffee

A brief description telling what it is used for.
CoffeeScript is a language that provides new features, safety and syntactic sugar on top of JavaScript.  CoffeeScript includes a 'compiler' that converts CoffeeScript code into JavaScript.

The URL to full specifications of the file type.
http://coffeescript.org

Where specifically can the language's list of keywords, comment styles, etc. be found?
http://coffeescript.org

How is the language commented, and what commenting style makes the most sense for comment/uncomment selection features?
# comments the rest of the line

Which delimiters make sense to be highlighted in delimiter highlighting?

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the suggestion, we'll write it down.  If you want to make this file type get supported sooner than later, you can build a CoffeeScript.langproj file for us as described here.  Our SyntaxEditor product includes a JavaScript.langproj so you could probably clone that and modify it as appropriate to get up and running quickly.  Let us know if you do decide to go that route.

The latest build of this product (v3.3.0029) was released 6 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
