The MPS 2.0 Future Series: Part 3. MPS – an open source project
In this last part of our MPS future series, we’ll have a brief look at the project itself and discuss its properties with respect to the community around it.
As most of you probably know, the MPS source code is already available (see a blog post mentioning the details). Shared source code, however, is not the only useful attribute of a good open source project. We plan to publicly share MPS daily and milestone builds for anyone to download.
The MPS website itself will soon be enhanced, too. It needs to include a lot more community-oriented features in addition to the already-existing bugtracker – it will host a wiki for community-built documentation, various code examples as well as on-line help.
We believe all these changes will result in enhanced communication and cooperation between all the people interested in the future of Domain Specific Languages.
In this three-part series we’ve looked under the hood of MPS 2.0. You see there’s a lot to look forward to. Although the plans may still change and features get re-prioritized, you could now have a sound idea of where the project is heading.
This document only highlighted the most important features. If you want to see details, and also track the progress, you should take a look at the MPS issue tracker.
Specifically, this search will give you the issues related to MPS 2.0. All these requests are only “plan items” for 2.0. We will probably fix a huge number of “normal bugs” along the way as well
Develop with pleasure!
