Syllable, AtheOS

The Syllable project is pleased to announce that the reports of its death have been greatly exaggerated, and that the new version 0.4 of Syllable Server has been released. This release focuses on maturing existing functionality, improving security, ongoing system restructuring, and making the system a suitable base for third-party package managers. Although the project admits it hasn't brought its unicorn factory online yet, extensive work was done on the nitty-gritty, so the full change log is quite long.

Most of the development you see here is Syllable Desktop progress. Syllable Desktop and Syllable Server are developed on the same base. They use many of the same components, from GNU and others, and our own build system with only limited variations between the two. For example, all the heavy system restructuring and most of the package upgrades will also be in the next Desktop build. Besides, Desktop has its own advancements going on.

Also, the last Server release was from almost two years ago, and the last Desktop build is from January, so methought Server was eligible for a new release.

Finally, if you want more Syllable Desktop progress, then make some! Syllable is a volunteer project.

You seem to be forgetting that skill is required to be able to do much. No, open source is not enough--it requires developers, which I am not.

Sorry, but that's a lame excuse (which I pretty much expected, because it is used a lot). You wouldn't want to put all progress in the world in the hands of computer programmers, now would you? As non-programmers always seem to think, that would be a disaster! ;-)
