Announcing the release of a new version of ANTLR, the successor to
PCCTS. Version 2.20 includes

o Grammar inheritance. Define a new grammar as it differs from
  an existing grammar.

o Great new lexical translation support. You can also now
  pass a heterogeneous stream of token objects to the
  parser; great for languages like HTML.

o Much improved AST support.

o Lots of bug fixes.

o A groovy example: HTML file indexer; used it to build TOC
  for ANTLR doc.

o An updated Java grammar that groks all of Java 1.1.

I've updated the documentation and added a new
"ANTLR Field Guide and Survival Manual"...small, but
will grow fast.

I'd also like to announce the new ANTLR home page:

Check out that site to grab the new version.

Best regards,
Terence Parr
