[REBOL] Re: OpenCL Wrappers: is anyone working towards this or something already exists!

From: moliad:gma:il at: 9-Sep-2009 21:46

Hi Tim, Many of us need various versions of our rebol applications to run on various systems and delivery methods. The browser plugin(s) is at the top of that list for sure. When the host code will be made available, anyone will be able to write the browser plugins, or a version for most any other device. RT might oversee the process, even helping out a bit, but I get the feeling Carl wants to work on other projects once R3 goes final. I think the browser plugin should become an open source project with volunteers and sponsors. This will help adoption since the plugin would be more open to scrutiny, and it will allow the plugins to evolve much faster in order to follow the frantic pace at which browser and web technologies are evolving. Chrome, Safari, Firefox and IE are all standards or emerging as such. Any browser plugin work will undoubtedly be a cross browser effort. Note, I'm not in the inner R3 dev team, but I'm close enough to it that I can sense the genuine feeling that R3 is finally close to where Carl needs it to be in order to start talking about more serious use of R3. There are several hundred less bugs in the last version than there where barely what, a month ago? AFAICT we must let R3 reach beta stage before thinking about adapting the host to new systems. With R3 reaching this goal now within sight, the time for these discussions is almost upon us... but not just yet. There are still a few things to consider before R3 features are locked down... so until that is really complete, I don't think anyone can give a precise roadmap in shape or timeline. But we are getting close... finally :-) -MAx On Wed, Sep 9, 2009 at 1:46 PM, Tim Johnson<> wrote:
