As of ANTLR 4.2.1, March 25 2014, we are no longer updating this file. Instead,
we are using the github release mechanism. For example, here is
4.2.1 release notes:
ANTLR v4 Honey Badger
January 15, 2014
* Unit tests for lexer actions from yesterday.
* Refactored TreeView so we can refresh tree externally w/o creating new one.
Needed for intellij plugin.
January 14, 2014
* Updated serialized ATN representation of lexer actions, allowing the lexer
interpreter to execute the majority of lexer commands (#408)
January 12, 2014
* Support executing precedence predicates during the SLL phase of
adaptivePredict (#401). The result is a massive performance boost for grammars
containing direct left-recursion (improvements of 5% to 1000+% have been
observed, depending on the grammar and input).
December 29, 2013
* Internal change: Tool.loadGrammar() -> parseGrammar(). Tool.load()->parse()
* Added Tool.loadGrammar(fileName) that completely parses, extracts implicit lexer,
and processes into Grammar object. Does not geneate code. Use
Grammar.getImplicitLexer() to get the lexer created during processing of
combined grammar.
* Added Grammar.load(fileName) that creates Tool object for you. loadGrammar()
lets you create your own Tool for setting error handlers etc...
final Grammar g = Grammar.load("/tmp/MyGrammar.g4");
December 19, 2013
* Sam:
Improved documentation for tree patterns classes
Refactored parts of the tree patterns API to simplify classes and improve encapsulation
Move ATN serializer to runtime
Use ATNDeserializer methods instead of ATNSimulator methods which are now deprecated
* parrt: fix null pointer bug with rule "a : a;"
November 24, 2013
* Ter adds tree pattern matching. Preferred interface:
ParseTree t = parser.expr();
ParseTreePattern p = parser.compileParseTreePattern("<ID>+0", MyParser.RULE_expr);
ParseTreeMatch m = p.match(t);
String id = m.get("ID");
String xpath = "//blockStatement/*";
String treePattern = "int <Identifier> = <expression>;";
ParseTreePattern p =
List<ParseTreeMatch> matches = p.findAll(tree, xpath);
November 20, 2013
* Sam added method stuff like expr() that calls expr(0). Makes it possible
to call expr rule from TestRig (grun).
November 14, 2013
* Added Sam's ParserInterpreter implementation that uses ATN after
LexerGrammar lg = new LexerGrammar(
"lexer grammar L;\n" +
"A : 'a' ;\n" +
"B : 'b' ;\n" +
"C : 'c' ;\n");
Grammar g = new Grammar(
"parser grammar T;\n" +
"s : (A{;}|B)* C ;\n",
LexerInterpreter lexEngine = lg.createLexerInterpreter(new ANTLRInputStream(input));
CommonTokenStream tokens = new CommonTokenStream(lexEngine);
ParserInterpreter parser = g.createParserInterpreter(tokens);
ParseTree t = parser.parse(g.rules.get(startRule).index);
November 13, 2013
* move getChildren() from Tree into Trees (to avoid breaking change)
* Notation:
/prog/func, -> all funcs under prog at root
/prog/*, -> all children of prog at root
/*/func, -> all func kids of any root node
prog, -> prog must be root node
/prog, -> prog must be root node
/*, -> any root
*, -> any root
//ID, -> any ID in tree
//expr/primary/ID, -> any ID child of a primary under any expr
//body//ID, -> any ID under a body
//'return', -> any 'return' literal in tree
//primary/*, -> all kids of any primary
//func/*/stat, -> all stat nodes grandkids of any func node
/prog/func/'def', -> all def literal kids of func kid of prog
//stat/';', -> all ';' under any stat node
//expr/primary/!ID, -> anything but ID under primary under any expr node
//expr/!primary, -> anything but primary under any expr node
//!*, -> nothing anywhere
/!*, -> nothing at root
September 16, 2013
* Updated build.xml to support v4 grammars in v4 itself; compiles XPathLexer.g4
* Add to XPath:
Collection<ParseTree> findAll(String xpath);
September 11, 2013
* Add ! operator to XPath
* Use ANTLR v4 XPathLexer.g4 not regex
* Copy lots of find node stuff from v3 GrammarAST to Trees class in runtime.
September 10, 2013
* Adding in XPath stuff.
August 31, 2013
* Lots of little fixes thanks to Coverity Scan
August 7, 2013
* [BREAKING CHANGE] Altered left-recursion elimination to be simpler. Now,
we use the following patterns:
* Binary expressions are expressions which contain a recursive invocation of
the rule as the first and last element of the alternative.
* Suffix expressions contain a recursive invocation of the rule as the first
element of the alternative, but not as the last element.
* Prefix expressions contain a recursive invocation of the rule as the last
element of the alternative, but not as the first element.
There is no such thing as a "ternary" expression--they are just binary
expressions in disguise.
The right associativity specifiers no longer on the individual tokens because
it's done on alternative basis anyway. The option is now on the individual
alternative; e.g.,
e : e '*' e
| e '+' e
|<assoc=right> e '?' e ':' e
|<assoc=right> e '=' e
If your language uses a right-associative ternary operator, you will need
to update your grammar to include <assoc=right> on the alternative operator.
This also fixes #245 and fixes #268:
To smooth the transition, <assoc=right> is still allowed on token references
but it is ignored.

some tests in TestSets appeared to allow ~('a'|B) but it was randomly working.

November 18, 2012
* fixed: undefined rule refs caused exception
* cleanup, rm dead etypes, add check for ids that cause code gen issues
* added notion of one-off error
* added check for v3 backward incompatibilities:
** tree grammars
** labels in lexer rules
** tokens {A;B;} syntax
** tokens {A='C';} syntax
** {...}?=> gate semantic predicates
** (...)=> syntactic predicates
* Detect EOF in lexer rule
November 17, 2012
* .tokens files goes in output dir like parser file.
* added check: action in lexer rules must be last element of outermost alt
* properly check for grammar/filename difference
* if labels, don't allow set collapse for
a : A # X | B ;
* wasn't checking soon enough for rule redef; now it sets a dead flag in
AST so no more walking dup.

a null pointer exception.
October 1, 2012 -- 4.0b2 release
September 30, 2012

up by mistake. tweaked a few comments.
