Releasing MPS 3.1.1

We’re happily announcing a 3.1.1 bug fix release of MPS today. Apart from more then three dozens fixed bugs (see the release notes), there are a few interesting improvements that may be worth your time to investigate. Check them out:

  1. Substring search for the code-completion dialogs – the code-completion dialog just got much smarter. The code-completed text is now matched against any part of the candidate entry.
    CC1 CC2
  2. The DELETE and BACKSPACE key actions can now be distinguished properly by the editor and thus action maps defining handlers for both will correctly have the handlers triggered by a matching event.
    AM
  3. A code-completion action invoked by Control + Space at the end of an already resolved cell is no longer ignored. Instead, a single-entry code-completion menu is shown.
    Strict1
    It may be worth mentioning that repeating Control + Space will move the cursor to the front of the cell and re-populate the menu.
    Strict2
  4. The generation trace got a few more options to ease hunting generator issues.

Please, download MPS 3.1.1, enjoy and report potential issues through our tracker.

MPS 3.1 has been released

JetBrains MPS 3.1 with its newly added support for diagram editors has just been released. You can now download it and start using on your projects.

Diagram editors give your languages the capabilities to express ideas in a graphical way. Combined with the capability of multiple editors per concept this further widens the range of applicability of MPS-designed DSLs.

Diagram

On top of diagramming, MPS 3.1 comes with a considerably enhanced generator. The generator performance has been improved significantly and it now also offers more options for configuration and tuning.

The MPS editor itself has been enhanced in several ways:

  • Style priorities give you more flexibility when defining and overriding styles
  • Custom style attributes give you an additional way to customize the configurability of editors
  • Automatic reference re-resolving helps you fix references that get broken during code manipulation
  • Fluent parentheses editing in BaseLanguage automatically matches left and right parentheses and rebalances the expression tree as you type

Check out a complete list of all the new capabilities, consults the documentationdownload MPS 3.1 and enjoy building your DSLs.
