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).

In no way do we claim credit for open sourcing REBOL. It doesn't say that in the article, either.


Nor did I say, or imply that you did. Merely that your lead:

As the Syllable project predicted many years ago


wasn't your (meaning Syllable's) news, you buried the lead.

A better headline might have been have been:

REBOL 3 open sourced, ported to Syllable, also new Red language.


Though personally I think that is way too many stories to put in one piece. Again personally, I think that it would have been better to have one story announcing the open sourcing of REBOL 3 — aside from the article back in Sep saying that REBOL 3 would be open sourced there has been a story here about the actual release of the source — and then a separate Syllable related one.

Nor (once again) personally do I think the prediction bit was relevant to the story.

It is fine if you disagree (you wrote the story you wanted to write), I am just pointing out that I think it would have been better expressed by giving REBOL the credit for the open sourcing before you emphasize the the Syllable part.
