Actipro Blog 2009 Q3 posting summary

What we accomplished

In Quarter 3 of 2009 we focused on adding some significant value to our existing products while adding some new DataGrid support.

SyntaxEditor for WPF saw the implementation of the multi-threaded syntactic/semantic parsing framework, integration with ANTLR parsers via a new add-on, AST construction and error reporting features for the MGrammar add-on, and robust hit testing.

DataGrid for WPF was introduced as a new free product for our customers.  It is a couple of add-ons that provide behavior extensions, new themes, and Editors for WPF integration with the open source Microsoft WPF DataGrid control.

Docking/MDI for WPF added tab tinting, standard MDI window icons, and magnetism features.

What’s coming next

Right now we’re doing some very major enhancements to the SyntaxEditor Language Designer tool, so that it will be very easy to create language definitions used by SyntaxEditor for WPF.  Once these enhancements are complete and documented, we’ll publish what will probably be the final WPF Studio 2009.1 maintenance release.  More information will be posted soon on the updates we’re doing.

Following the final 2009.1 release, we will be working on some big updates for a WPF Studio 2009.2 version that shouldn’t be too far behind.  One cornerstone feature of 2009.2 will be floating documents like those found in VS 2010.  We have some other surprises planned as well.
