[REBOL] ANN: New Rugby release + website

From: m::koopmans2::chello::nl at: 8-Feb-2002 22:42

Hi All, There is a new Rugby release + website , although minimalistic ;-) I have added lots of code, and finally removed even more. What is Rugby now? What it was, but only with http transport, that uses compression. Improved marshaling, security bugs fixed. I invite you all to use it and test it, if you find bugs, report them to me. I'll fix it asap. Within a week or so I will send a standalone version of RebXR to Andreas, as XML-RPC has disappeared as well. In the end I tossed out a lot of goodies that I said would be in the next version, which I called XPi. Why not? As it turns out you can do everything (well, most of it) based on the current core. So the advice well taken was 'keep the core simple'. If you think you get less, you are *right*, but less is more. A lot of redundant code has disappeared, and the thing is much leaner now. For programmers that tends to be a good thing. Start using it! That's what I'll do the next few months.... Another reason not to put too much effort in some features is that REBOL is still young and evolving. I expect the next releases of REBOL to incorporate changes in the area of networking, serializing values etc. I think I added short but complete documentation as well. And the license is BSD, as always. You can find it all on Break the chains, make the change Maarten
