Though development has unfortunately come to a crawl, a first beta of TokenMakerMaker is available for testing. Contact me if you’re interested in testing it out. It will be a feedback-driven project – features that are asked for are what will be implemented. I plan on using it to generate a few new scanners for the next version of RSTA – first will be ActionScript.

Progress has been very slow the last couple of weeks, unfortunately, but there has been a little bit of work going on.
The most exciting thing is definitely the addition of a breadcumb bar to RText’s file chooser. The appearance of this component tries to mimic Vista’s breadcrumb bar in Windows Explorer. Things are looking good so far:
It still needs to handle runtime LaF changes properly, however. I’m also toying with having it “transform” into a text field when you click on any empty space at the end of the component, like Vista does. On an Enter keypress (or focus lost), it morphs back into a breadcrumb bar. It’s a very nice feature. Check out the current progress in SVN.
Besides that, not much has happened, save for some small progress on TokenMakerMaker. I’ll be sending a preview to those interested in testing it very soon hopefully. I also plan to eat my own dog food, and use it to generate some TokenMakers for new languages for the next RSTA release!
