ANTLR Studio featured in Programmation Sous Linux Magazine!

Wednesday, March 29, 2006

ANTLR Studio is featured in the latest issue of Programmation Sous Linux Magazine!

The magazine is avaliable in french and german versions only, no english version apparently.
It contains an article on ANTLR Studio and ANTLR Studio 1.0 on the cd.

Although strangely enough the copy of the magazine they sent me hasnt reached me, but they did send me some scans of the relevant pages. I am also attaching the original transcript of the article in english for readers who dont understand french or german :)

Here they are -

You can buy this issue of the magazine from here-

ANTLR Studio 1.1 Released!

Thursday, March 23, 2006

Its finally here! ANTLR Studio 1.1 has been released.

This release contains support for the latest antlr 2.7.6, lots of bugfixes and also a few enhancements to the existing features.

The 'Whats New' page can be found here-

With antlr 2.7.6, ANTLR Studio has truly become a part of Antlr itself as Antlr now contains some files required by ANTLR Studio for the grammar debugging to work. Previously those files were provided in a special version of the redisributable antlr jar, which was named as antlr instead of 2.7.5.
But ironically, if you look at the redistributable version of antlr provided with 1.1, it is again instead of the usual 2.7.6. Well that is because the original antlr 2.7.6 contained a critical bug which could create problems for antlr users, so instead of waiting for months for 2.7.7 to be released it was decided to put the fix in this version only.

So as you can see, if you stick to ANTLR Studio you get the most bug free version of Antlr ;)

Oh, and also you must have noticed the Flux Debugger is now called Fluid Debugger due to trademark problems. I know I had previously announced it would be called Fuse Debugger, but then I found out of another project called 'Fuse' at dev.java.net, so finally 'Fluid' was adapted.

So what are you waiting for, go download it now from here -

Existing users can upgrade for free. Upgrade instructions can be found here -

Have fun and enjoy ANTLR Studio 1.1 :)

AS 1.1 feature: TypeOnce now shows description of options

Monday, March 20, 2006

Although ANTLR Studio is mainly a bug fix release and has support for antlr 2.7.6, I have taken the time to enhance some of the existing features (which is why the delay in release).

Now one thing which you probably found lacking in TypeOnce was that if you press Ctrl+Space to see the list of options available, although you can see the options themselves but you cant figure out what each one actually means. You usually had to go go take a look at the documentation for that.

So to rid you of this hassle, from 1.1 onwards ANTLR Studio will show the description of each option next it to it when you select in in the list!

For new readers: ANTLR Studio 1.1 will be available as a free upgrade to existing users of ANTLR Studio.
