Carl, I know ;-) I just meant something different. As to your sentence above - you took the right direction! I love it. The only one thing which bothers me is licensing scheme, but I still hope you'll find satisfactory solution. Corporate money is not problem, I am just scared of hobbyist level. As for Rebol product releases. As I said - I had something else in my mind. The problem is, that according to email I was replying to, it seems that once you release new product, eg. /Command, you put in there the most up-to-date /Core. And that's what I can see a little bit problematic. Let's say someone writes script using function XY under new /Command, and it works. Then he/she migrates his script into most recent /View and ouch, it doesn't work anymore. The person is, however, using the most up-to-date versions of /Core, /View, /Command, /Link, whatever. There should not be any difference imo. That's why my opinion is, that base product (core) should be the same foundation thru all products, and I offered two possible solutions - one core thru all products + dynamic component system, or - once you release e.g. /Command containing some /Core related changes, /View experimentals should be generated too ... ... the whole thing is related to one old thread - bug tracking mechanism, features planned for upcoming releases, etc etc. What about putting /Express bug database into some section on View desktop? I hope you can understand my POV and don't find it offending anymore ... :-) Friendly, -pekr-
