-<p>The XPS project's purpose is to making programming computers easier by
-raising the level of abstraction in programming languages beyond the current 
-practice. By using XML as a means for extensibility, XPS will support both
-meta-programming and domain engineering. In particular, it will make the
-creation of new Domain-Specific Languages very easy. By moving the programming
-abstraction into to the problem domain, the "impedance mis-match" between the
-problem domain and the solution domain is all but eliminated.</p>
-<p>XPS combines an XML-based programming language, XPL, with a robust virtual
-machine making it easier to develop applications by hiding all the "computer 
-science" and increasing the level of abstraction without losing performance. 
-True to its name, XPL is highly extensible. It permits extension of
-both the programming language and the virtual machine with relative ease.
-Somewhat counter-intuitively, XPL is not a particularly programmer friendly
-language. It is designed to be fast, efficient, and easily compilable. It is
-expected that higher level (e.g. domain specific) languages will be designed
-that translate into XPL.  These facilities support meta-programming and domain
-engineering so that software can be written using domain-specific
-vocabularies. The goal is to make it possible for the lay person to program
-computers without having to learn complicated programming languages or
-understand the tenets of computer science.</p>
-<p>Currently, XPS is under development. It has just completed its 0.2.0 release
-which includes a basic XPL compiler that can reproduce its XPL input. The next
-release, 0.3.0 (Summer 2005) will compile XPL to executable code via LLVM's
-facilities. The decision to use LLVM was made in November, 2003 as it provides 
-a much simpler and more modern compiler infrastructure than the other open 
-source alternatives. Using LLVM for the "back end" of XPS will accelerate the 
-development of XPS because many of the compilation and execution details are 
-taken care of by LLVM.</p>
