Syllable, AtheOS Version 0.2.5 of the new Red/System programming language has been released, after it celebrated its first birthday at the third Red Developers Conference. Bindings with the standard C library, cURL, SDL and SQLite that were developed over the past year are now properly supported on Syllable Desktop. Conference videos introduce Red/System and the bindings. Earlier, new floating point support was released (Mandelbrot screenshot; demo source, see the .reds file).

I guess you also missed the paragraph in the article that a new Syllable Desktop development version was released a month ago.

The development build you are referring was not built from cvs code, more looks like a custom old 0.6.7 dev build. Why? Kernel is not from CVS, and the last change that greatly effected it was 23 month ago, very stupid, "renaming bin to programs", there is no path like /boot/system/programs/init in this release, it would fail booting if kernel was from cvs. If soundblaster works in this version this is probably a custom 0.6.6, oss port was updated but driver wasn't.

There are both binary problems and source problems to fix to get a new Syllable release out, so I decided to speed up the process by fixing the last binary Syllable development build. There are a lot of fixes and additions on top of it, though. This is also necessary to be able to build a fully updated new toolchain.
