Better parsing and disambiguation
Ali Afroozeh worked on a new implementation of GLL parsing, called Iguana. Unlike traditional parser generators, Iguana adopted the interpretive approach that is also used in the Ensō parser. This experiment is still ongoing, but the new parser is expected to be integrated into Rascal beginning of 2014. Additionally, a longstanding problem of disambiguation using operator precedence was solved  . Traditional approaches are either not safe (i.e. they make the language smaller), or they do not support complex precedence rules as found in, for instance, OCaml.
