Inform 7 released

A new public beta of Inform, the popular interactive fiction engine, has been released. This sounds like the most complete overhaul of the engine to date and seems to address one of my main concerns with the format ... that being the complexity of producing the narrative itself. Apparently you can now design using plain English instead of complicated object language and there are tools for previewing and testing your story within the engine.

I am, to be honest, not really convinced this would still be an engine I want to work with, but it definately sounds like they've done some very hard and interesting work with this overhaul. Anyone interested in IF should definately check it out.
