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).

There's no limit to the lies you will tell, is there? You know full well Syllable 0.6.7 is not 0.6.6. Several key additions in 0.6.7 won't even run on 0.6.6, for example Red, as this very article tells you.

Oh, so Red is part of the actual OS? And if Red was stripped out, what's the actual difference between 0.6.6 & 0.6.7??? What's the difference between the core OS in each of those 2 versions??? Device drivers? Kernels? Servers? Unfortunately for you, most OSNews readers know better. Adding support for some obscure language doesn't constitute bumping the version number of an OS release, regardless of how many different dialects of that language you support. Let me ask this question again, plainly: WHAT HAVE YOU CONTRIBUTED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE ACTUAL OS, ITSELF???? NOT LANGUAGE BINDINGS, NOT WALLPAPERS, NOT WEBSITES; THE ACTUAL OS!!! Nothing??? Yeh, that's what I thought. Go back & play in your sandbox, script kiddy!
