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).

Just want to say, I think it is great what the syllable team is doing. From the comments I gather you have a difficult job keeping everyone happy. The zeitgeist in the comment thread was not that good. Is unfortunate because the syllable is of the few teams that actually contribute articles.
All the best.

Perhaps you can specify, what is great that syllable team (?) is doing?

And who is part of the syllable team? People you see on wikipedia as "syllable devs" are already working at pyro-os, and the others are mostly non-active related to syllable.
So perhaps that's a great opportunity for kaj to start updating the wikipedia pages, so that it reflects the reality better.

... and to make you finally happy, after all those years of constant ranting towards Kaj and "scripting languages" - LOL :-)

Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a shop window for projects to present themselves. We are not responsible for it and we are not even allowed to edit our Syllable page, because we are stakeholders. I only edit it to correct indisputable facts, such as broken links.

Wikipedia users who are discontent with the info should correct it, so that would be you.

What's up with that Pyro-OS? I've tried to find information about it, but there seems to be preciously little. I only know it is a Syllable fork, that the split (apparently) was not very friendly, and that the devs want to emit as little CO2 as possible.
