From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  Mesa
  
     Xerox PARC, 1977.  System and application programming for
     proprietary hardware: Alto, Dolphin, Dorado and Dandelion.
     Pascal-like syntax, ALGOL68-like semantics.  An early version
     was weakly typed.  Mesa's modules with separately compilable
     definition and implementation parts directly led to Wirth's
     design for Modula.  Threads, coroutines (fork/join),
     exceptions, and monitors.  Type checking may be disabled.
     Mesa was used internally by Xerox to develop ViewPoint, the
     Xerox Star, MDE, and the controller of a high-end copier.  It
     was released to a few universitites in 1985.  Succeeded by
     Cedar.
