James and I aren't the only ones..

  • Justin Chase made the installer and also fixed some issues with the .booproj locating the BooBinPath

  • Torkel Ödegaard is responsible for a number of things: Debugger breakpoints, project properties, etc.

Definately a team effort!

@Ayende - would it be adaptable to DSLs?

Ken,

Haven't looked at the code yet, not sure.

I am going to play with that, for sure.

One of the goals for, most likely, a 1.1 release of BooLangStudio is to port the syntax highlighting stuff to Boo.OMeta ... which in and of itself isn't huge.. but when you use it to parse referenced assemblies for objects and members that extend the language (macros, metamethods, syntax extension via Boo.OMeta, etc), it'll make alot of cool stuff possible in terms of enabling syntax highlighting/etc for DSLs or major syntax mutations.
