Starting today you can peek at what we’ve been working on for the next version of MPS – the first EAP release of MPS 2017.1 has just been made available.
MPS has adopted the versioning scheme of all JetBrains products, which implies that you’ll be receiving regular major MPS updates three times a year, shortly after the regular updates of the IntelliJ platform, on top of which MPS is built.
There are numerous changes and improvements waiting for you to try out and comment on in the new release. The key ones to mention are:
- Migrations updating local history
- Migrations for the various conceptNode-related constructs in the smodel language
- Highly refactored generator of the editor language to ease extension of the language
- HTTP support plugin to simplify integration with build and continuous integration systems
- Fully compiled languages
We’ve documented the key areas of improvements in the What’s new in MPS 2017.1 page. The document as well as the features themselves are still under development, so please be ready for some adventure when exploring the new territories.
We hope that you’ll enjoy this new release.
