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).

REBOL is written in very standard C, because it needs to run on systems and compilers much older than Syllable. For example, Amiga OS is supported.

Furthermore, Red is its own compiler toolchain, so it is completely independent from any external compiler such as GCC.

And yes, Syllable is a development project. Nobody ever claimed it to be finished, and the most interesting thing about it is that anybody can help move it along.
