What languages are available for plugin development?

Hello everyone.
Is there any way to escape from Java and use some another programming language for development of my own plugin? Maybe Scala or so. If you have such an experience please share it with me. Thank you.

You can use whatever language you want provided that it can be compiled to JVM bytecode and allows to call Java methods and implement Java interfaces
(to use IDEA Open API). E.g. the Scala plugin for IDEA is written in Scala.
