Yes there's been quite alot in terms of grammar recognition, Tomita's
GLR, and a number of extensions and speedups of the originally tainted
algorithm. Then PEG and PackRat parsing which are more natural to use
than LR grammars.
Then for backends there's LLVM :-
And Microsoft Research'es Pheonix :-
There's a weath of papers on CiteSeer that are worth looking at too :-
Good luck and have fun,
