Syllable, AtheOS The third release of Syllable Server has been published. This is the first release that focused on making the system actually usable as a server. A number of popular servers were added and configured, and also several innovative REBOL software stacks. Out of the imaginary box, Syllable Server is now ready for such things as accepting remote SSH log-ins over the network, running a web server on the Cheyenne REBOL server, running an FTP server and several more. Special attention has been paid to programmability, with support for developing Model-View-Controller web applications in QuarterMaster and networking applications with the REBOL/Services Service Oriented Architecture. The Genode Nitpicker windowing system is also included. Read the rest in the full changelog. An extensive manual was also written. Both a BitTorrent download (preferred) and a regular download are available (80MB 7-Zip archive).

I'm quite surprised that Syllable developers are apparently spending so much time on a language without a complete open source implementation (AFAIK)!

Especially since there are already very nice languages such as Scala or Ruby with fully open source implementations..

You clearly haven't used REBOL.

Aside from that, Syllable also includes an open source REBOL clone called OSCAR. Many of the tools run on either REBOL or OSCAR, though some require one or the other. These languages are so small and tight that there is no loss in having both.

I believe the REBOL clone is called ORCA, not OSCAR. As of late, I was wondering about the state of ORCA as it is pretty quiet on that front?

It really is nice to see somebody doing something Different and unusual on top of the Linux kernel. While it would be nice to see some more work done on the Syllable kernel and Syllable Desktop, I think that some of the stuff the Syllable team is doing on top of Linux is quite exciting in terms of how far beyond the bog-standard LAMP stack they go.
