Syllable, AtheOS Version 0.2.5 of the new Red/System programming language has been released, after it celebrated its first birthday at the third Red Developers Conference. Bindings with the standard C library, cURL, SDL and SQLite that were developed over the past year are now properly supported on Syllable Desktop. Conference videos introduce Red/System and the bindings. Earlier, new floating point support was released (Mandelbrot screenshot; demo source, see the .reds file).

Kaj,

With the RED - GTK binding have you soften your stance on GTK coming to desktop. ( And no I am not meaning to rehash discussions about cairo being on Syllable with the Pyro guys when I used to follow the Syllable mailing lists civil answers from all would be appreciated)
I am curious because now that you have it (a GTK binding) will it be moving to desktop.

I also notice in Nenad tweets enlightenment with Red

I have also been following Haiku mailing list there is a healthy discussion at the moment of maybe making QT a native api over the Haiku kernel. I don't think it will go ahead but you never know. It's an interesting idea thou making QT basically a native OS rather then an add on to Linux.

What are your thoughts for Syllable for the future.

Improve the current API
Move more to a GTK base with RED and Syllable
Move Syllable move to Red - enlightenment based api

I wish everybody the best

Pyro, Syllable and Haiku
