MPS state

Hi MPS-team,

Could somebody please shed some light on the planned future of MPS? When we

can expect version 1.0? What features will it contain? What is a/the

concrete usecase you are targetting with it?

After seeing the death of (Visual) Fabrique after 3(?) years of enormous

effort, I can't imagine a lot of people will use the current MPS state for

solving real-world problems with it, because no one knows (except you)

whether it will have the same fate as (V)F.

Hello, Tom,

Everything is well with MPS now :-). But MPS is still research project

so it is very hard to think about its features in next build not to

mention version 1.0. We are now working on its applications and in near

future we will release several MPS-based applications.

Just curious, when we can expect a new MPS-build?

Will it base on new EAP version of IDEA or will it run on the release

version? Or even better: will it be independent of IDEA or an plug-in within

IDEA?

New version of MPS will use release version IDEA (And because there were

no major changes in open API in EAP version i think it will run well on

it).  We still need to write a lot of java code so integration with IDEA

greatly simplifies our life.
