A second milestone towards Xtext 2.11 named Beta 2 has been published today! The feature set is largely at the same state as with the Beta 1 published on October 21st. The main difference is that we spent a lot of effort in the build system for the new repository structure, allowing us to publish both for Eclipse and for Maven in a clean and consistent way. This means that you can use this new milestone also with Gradle or Maven projects, e.g. in applications built on the Xtext web integration.

We would like to encourage all Xtext users to check this milestone version with their applications and to give us feedback. Now there’s still time to improve things before 2.11.0 is released (January 24th).

Using the Cutting Edge

As usual you can find nightly built snapshots on the Xtext Latest update site or on Sonatype Snapshots. However, if you want to apply even more up-to-date versions to your application, all subprojects of Xtext now offer their build artifacts in local repositories on our build server:

These builds are triggered automatically when changes are pushed to the corresponding GitHub repositories. Please note that while the nightly built snapshots have signed JARs, the cutting edge builds are not signed.
