I don't care for R2 anymore, that is the history. You release as soon as possible suggestion is something I agree totally with. With DevBase, there will be "constant" release, every improvement will be posted there. The only thing closed will be rebol.dll. I hope that will help ....

Yes, they were probably disouraged by RT and it was not good move, because RT was not able to fullfill their promisses. However, - we can't win that argument back anymore. I suggest to concentrate upon what is about to come :-) Look, I am last guy who would like to hype things. But R3 is coming, initial estimates were wrong, but after release things might start changing. However - it will not be easy path to follow. Petr
