Maybe its me, but I cannot find anything about the new relese on
www.antlr.org, nor can I find anythign about the licensing policy of
this new release? Why is this so??
I am currently using 2.7.5, but find it hard to track what is going on
in the ANTLR community.
Yes, we have this news group, but a news group is a very inefficient
when it comes to finding information you (I, we) need in a hurry:
Searching for a keyword more often than not gives matched to another
person who asks the same question or someone who thinks they know the
Speaking in general terms, most of the ANTLR site seems to be for the

The ANTLRWorks jar has everything you need including ANTLR 3.0ea1.
Per the license in LICENSE.txt, this software is not guaranteed to
work and might even destroy all life on this planet.
ANTLR and ANTLRWorks are released under the BSD license, though
ANTLRWorks has no source with it at the moment.
Feel free to send comments to the antlr-interest list or if you want

(minor tweak to the contribution license coming tomorrow AM; had even
more lawyers look at it <snicker>)
Expect this software to change over the summer (syntax+libraries
possibly) with hopefully a number of early access releases. Expect
more language targets. Ric Klaren is working on the C templates and
the C# folks are reportedly working on the C# templates (should be
easy given it's similarity to Java).
The only thing I can tell you is that it seems to work for the
Just so you know, you will be asked to "register" when you first
bring up ANTLRWorks.
