Extensions and new development version 0.18

The scheduled version 1.0 of the Phorward Foundation Toolkit has been aborted for now, and development on an extended version 0.18 has begun.

The upcoming development version 0.18 integrates a new, object-oriented approach of an implementation of a multi-paradigm (LR, LALR, and also LL) parser generator and grammar experimentation playground.

Changed build-system to autotools

The version 0.17 of the Phorward Foundation Toolkit is nearly finished, and now uses GNU autotools as its general build-system. Other supported systems are Scons, and there is a project file for Visual Studio 2008 Express Edition.

Uploaded development snapshot 0.15.8

Just now, a snapshot of the current version 0.15.8 was uploaded into the Subversion repositories, introducing revision 3, and as default release download.

Next version will be under 0.16.x further developed.

Screencast for Linux setup

Hi there!
I have right uploaded a screen cast which demonstrates how to set the Phorward Foundation Libraries up under Linux. Maybe I will move the video from the files to e.g. YouTube or something like that soon...

Have fun!
