Open Source Release: ToonZ

One of the things I want to do in this blog is report about new products. ToonZ is not exactly new but what is new is that starting today it will be available for free.

So why not use MSVC’s macro facility or Eclipse’s XTEXT? Well they’re sure nice tools but I have to switch dev environs so often I need something even simpler and IDE-independent so that’s why.
