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:

I ported Mesa two years ago or so, it's in Syllable 0.6.7. Vanders never promised wifi, we merely discussed it. The rest of your "info" is also misinformation.

Well, wifi was not only discussed it was intended in 2007 as a x-mas present for 2008, or something like that.

And related to mesa3d:
my sincer congratulations for porting it.
But too bad that your port of mesa is not complelte in the sense that it doesnt "print on the screen" according to your own documentation. So I have some little doubts about how well mesa is tested on syllable if you dont have a direct visual output. This is some kind of mesa for blinds.
You could have a good occupation for the next decade: Bring mesa to the screen, and then see if indeed mesa is working correctly, and integrate it in the syllable api.
But surprize, there are very bad chances this to happen, because for that you need to know the appserver, and there is hardly someone left in the so called "syllable team", who has good knowledge related to the appsever (Vanders is inactive for years, Arno is gone, Rick is gone, and Dee seems to be occupied with pyro).
So yes, you have a good occupation for the next decade.
One could wish hw acc. graphics drivers too, but indeed that's too much even if you are an optimist.

in short again:
if you have good news related to syllable development i'm happy to read it, but seeing that you come up that often with fake news, that are not really that much related to syllable, is somehow annoying, and seeing all the screenshots that are the same as in previous "syllable news".
