Just wanted to let everyone know that we have decided to remove the syntax highlighting for the EGL "primitive" types. You will no longer see highlighting in the EGL editor for the following:
any, bigint, boolean, bytes, date, decimal, float, int, number, smallfloat, smallint, string, time, timestamp
These are still considered to be keywords in our parser, however. So you will not be able to override the definition of these base types (yet).
This was done for a couple of reasons:
1) We wanted to cleanup the keyword list. We still had several keywords for types that we do not (currently) support in EDT
2) Our long term plan is to remove all of these keywords from the parser. This will give our type system the extensibility that EDT requires.
I have just released the changes today, so you should see the change starting with the next nightly build.
