Syllable, AtheOS Recently, the first public version was released of the alpha development version of REBOL 3, the advanced programming language by Carl Sassenrath of Amiga OS fame. Now, native versions have also been released for Linux and Mac OS X. Like the private version of a year ago, the Linux version runs on Syllable Server. These versions are currently comparable to REBOL/Core 2, without the graphical system, and can be downloaded through here. REBOL is an important part of Syllable's cross-platform strategy.

What is even better is that the Syllable devs have been busily coding away on an open-source clone of Rebol, called "Orca". Here's the link -

http://trac.geekisp.com/orca/wiki/OrcaProject

Although that site says that the "Orca creator has stopped the development of Orca to focus his efforts on Thune." - the project is still going. Kaj (one of the devs mentioned on that page) is (iirc) Kaj de Vos, one of the Syllable devs.

Good on the Syllable devs for daring to be different and doing stuff like this!
