Syllable, AtheOS Red is a new programming language inspired by REBOL, but compiled and open source. The language is currently being bootstrapped by first implementing a lower level dialect, in which the high level, dynamic language will be written. This C class dialect for systems programming, Red/System, has reached beta status after only half a year of development. It now supports using dynamic libraries on Syllable. Also, a new version of Syllable Desktop's FTP client, Transferrer, was released (screenshot accessing Syllable Server).

RE[4]: almost a fork (2)

"No new code, no fork, just more documentation and a clean sh build script without ruby, rebol crap (nothing personal about rebol, just want a cleaner compile way)

The build system for Syllable (Builder) is actually pretty damn good.


Yes, my effort is in order to achieve a more standard build system, in my opinion, to use builder is a way to get more "bloat". just my 2 cents. The other topics i mentioned are the poor documentation in the mediaserver, appserver, and specially, "registrar". Not to mention the kernel also with poor documentation.

To CIPRI, Haiku has some good points over many HobbyOSes, but my effort is to offer a product in that world, exactly, hobbyOSes (a topic covered by the "hype" in Syllable, adding more features without simplifying the install process, without being capable to self compile..).
