There’s been a major redesign of the Xtext website. Not only, it leverages the modern Eclipse Indigo look in different variations. Similar to Xtext itself, it comes with some cool new features whereas others had been polished and could be improved. You will find a completely overhauled documentation and dedicated areas for the infamous Xbase and Xtend 2.
When you first open the new website you will notice an extensive realignment compared to the previous version. The site leverages various CSS3 features such as animations (look at the subtle “2.0″ glow), smooth hover effects or a slider-based navigation at the top.
In addition to various news streams that collect blog posts, tweets or commit statistics, there are randomly drawn quotes from happy Xtext users. Talking about mashups and happiness: The documentation now integrates with Disqus (at the bottom of every page) so you can give direct feedback on any topic or provide useful code snippets to others!
Unfortunately, I couldn’t contribute much code to the Xtext project over the last two years. Working on the Xtext website once a year is my attempt to say: “Thank you, Xtext team. Your work is great!”
