Light Table is now Open Source

Today Light Table is taking a huge step forward - every bit of its code is now on Github and along side of that, we're releasing Light Table 0.6.0, which includes all the infrastructure to write and use plugins. If you haven't been following the 0.5.* releases, this latest update also brings a tremendous amount of stability, performance, and clean up to the party. All of this together means that Light Table is now the open source developer tool platform that we've been working towards. Go download it and if you're new give our tutorial a shot!

Getting both plugins and going open source into a single release was a big undertaking, but it gets us closer to the community supported platform we've been working towards over the past year and a half. From here on out, anyone can play the game and what that'll result in is hard to tell, but it'll certainly be interesting. By getting the platform out, we can now focus a bit more on rethinking the state of the art. And we have some very interesting (and crazy!) ideas for what we think we can do to programming as an industry. I hope you'll join along with us in reimagining what it means to program.
Official Announcement

For those unfamiliar with Light Table, it's an IDE that raised over $300,000 on Kickstarter.

Excellent, I've been following Light Table development for some time now. I haven't used it much but it is definitely not 'just another' IDE - I think it'll strongly appeal to a particular group of people.
