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).

it was not, and I never made any such "promise" or even vague hints.


Well, i did a quick search. And didnt find a firm promise, but a vague hint i found in the mailing list:

From: Kristian Van Der Vliet <vanders@li...> - 2007-01-01 12:55
"
My crystal ball is hazy as I look into 2007, but hopefully we'll see:
o WiFi support.
"

As far as I remember there was a more promising state for beginning of 2008 but didnt find it, i found just a post from myself from july 2007, where i was saying that "in vanders opinion we will have support for wifi at beginning of 2008".
But the problem is, that the old syllable forum broke the new one has just the forum posts starting with september 2008. So I can not search for the reasons i made that statement in july 2007.

So far, this quick search could not prove my statement, but i guess a "vague hint" i could provide.

In the mailing list i found something else that is cute:
From: Kristian Van Der Vliet <vanders@li...> - 2005-12-31 14:22

At the start of 2005, some of you may recall that I made a New Years Resolution. I said that I would be using Syllable full time, as my primary Operating System, by the end of the year. Sadly, I havn't quite managed it.
......
However, I am confident that I'll be able to make the switch within the next few months.


It seems that all the rumor related to new years resolutions is true :-))

*rolls eyes* Yes, fine, obviously you know better than me about what I planned to do five years ago. Go you.

Strangely I couldn't find any emails from yourself saying "Oh wow, I really want WiFi support, so I've started work on developing it!". Strange, that.
