New Features of Eli Version 4.6

Additional Packages

Eli is a collection of packages that define sets of tools and workflow patterns. The actual generation process is handled by Odin, a program designed to manage a collection of artifacts and tools to provide products that are up-to-date with respect to all of the raw material on which they are based.

Many of the packages included in the Eli distribution define tools and workflow patterns that, although they support text-processor generation, are useful for other applications. Version 4.6 simplifies the processes of modifying existing packages and of adding new packages to take advantage of these facilities.

We are also making additional packages available individually in conjunction with the standard Eli distribution. These additional packages are distributed as tar files whose names begin with pkg-.

For those interested in constructing their own packages, the best reference is the book Generating Software from Specifications (see http://www.jbpub.com/catalog/0763741248/).
