New kid on the block: XCore

The guys at the Eclipse Modeling Framework leaded by Ed Merks @edmerks are working hard in XCore to provide ECore models a textual syntax. This is a needed feature from a long time.

It was also a good surprise to see how XCore syntax is quite close to Essential Meta. This is good news again: interoperability between the Java modeling  side of world (EMF) and .NET modeling efforts with Essential are now simpler with the arrival of XCore.

As Meinte Boersma @miente37 comment on twitter: semicolons seems to be the main difference.

BTW, a new release of Essential with minimal bug fixing has been released (0.5.1). Try it out!
