The Java Syntactic Extender
(via ::Manageability::)

We present an extension to the Java language that allows Java programmers to define new syntactic constructs. The design is based on the Dylan macro system (e.g., rule-based pattern matching and hygiene), but exploits Java's compilation model to offer a full procedural macro engine. In other words, syntax expanders may be implemented in, and so use all the facilities of, the full Java language.

I think we mentioned this in the past, but I am not sure. After that long Java thread, it may be nice to return to this topic anyway.

More on Java syntax extension.

Are all the other editors already on vacation?
