Syllable, AtheOS The new version 3 of the REBOL programming language supports extensions written in other languages. Extensions are implemented on top of the modules framework, which is also new. Extensions can be separate dynamically loaded libraries, or they can be embedded in the REBOL executable. In fact, REBOL 3 is now highly modularised: a number of its subsystems are embedded modules, and subsystems written in C and C++ are embedded extensions. Those modules and extensions are part of the open host kit, so that custom collections can be compiled into REBOL executables.

As an Amiga fan I've had an interest in REBOL since the mid 90s (it was hyped for a while even before it was released) but I've always been put off by it being closed source. I heard rumours of Carl finally opening up REBOL but I can't find any links to confirm it. So, is REBOL 3 finally getting an OSI compliant license? There seems to be source code on Github but I can't find a license text.
