Syllable, AtheOS As the Syllable project predicted many years ago, version 3 of the REBOL programming language has finally been open sourced, under the Apache 2 licence (screenshot on Syllable Desktop). Also, the alpha version of the high-level Red programming language, supporting Syllable Desktop, has been released, by now in version 0.3.1 (screenshot, demo program, video at the Science Park in Amsterdam).

Member since:

you have absolute zero Rebol or even technical related knowledge

I wouldnt bet my money related to the technical knowledge. I even have a diploma asserting my techinal knowledge :-)

I spent a lot of time with rebol 2.
And have written all sort of applications like chat server and chat client for irc (and also with direct communication and using additional encryption).
With rebol 3 i could not do that much because the gui was not in a useable state by then. And I'm sure there are still good reasons why it's called ALPHA.

I am really fed-up with your reactions

my reactions are negative, because syllable comes up all the time with joke-articles, nothing of weight, nothing of own creation.

Come up finally with wifi support (which was promised by vanders in 2005 or 2006). Port Mesa, and hw graphics drivers, and I will be the first to congratulate you.
In the last years it hardly happened that syllable didnt write related to rebol, and in fact as far as i see rebol did not make any/considerable progress on syllable. You don't have any gui bindings for rebol or red, and i can bet that even in 5 years from now you wont have functional gui bindings for syllable. And this is because syllable awaits a miracle instead of doing real work.

I would understand it, if rebol itself would write the news about opening the sources. But why syllable? Should haiku announce the updates of mesa, just because mesa runs on haiku? Hello??
In one article syllable was even telling us that red runs on ubuntu, how great!

the progress on syllable desktop in the last years, is that incredible small, but instead of working on core syllable desktop, we get such fake articles, just for the sake of being on osnews.
