Syllable, AtheOS There's a new REBOL like programming language in town. It's called Red, it's BSD licensed and contrary to REBOL and Boron, Red is a compiled language. The Syllable project is proud to announce that Red programs now run on Syllable Desktop. Here is a screenshot from a demo program. Syllable is the third Red target platform, after Windows and Linux.

LLVM JIT only considered?

Why did they consider the LLVM JIT instead of the static compilation process? At the beginning of the article didn't they say that Red is aiming to be statically compilable?

I must question the optimization capabilities of the toolchain when they reinvent the wheel only to have to reinvent every single spoke on the wheel.
