1) I am not sure if RT is sure about the same kind of licency as we have it with /Core .... but they imho should be :-) - what's more - once /View is just and only component to /Core, it should be regarded no separate product, but just some kind of library (component) needed to present your work ... or maybe not :-) Well, Carl & the gang surely knows where they want to go .... 2) as for freezing the product - yes, last experimental of /View (at least under Windows) seems to be pretty stable. RT should however fix what is fixable in short period of time ...Also look at Allen's rebolforces site for some issues to solve ... I would also like some small additions requested from early /View beta 1 version, as change of the state of mouse pointer (we can store bitmaps in system structure, right?), possibility to hide mouse pointer, transparency at top level, ability to open window in such mode, that it would stay always in front (imagine floating bars in Photoshop e.g.), some basic drawing primitives implemented as effects - line, oval, circle, box, filling of such areas, etc. stuff ... Of course, much of the requested stuff doesn't break current functionality in any way - it just does View more usable, possible faster. What I fear of more are changes to core - It would be good to have modules introduced soon. It would be also good to dynamic components ready soon and have one and only rebol.exe/Core. - it's stuff which can influence the style we design rebol apps. It's sad knowing rebol/apache with modules would rock, and see /Express developed upon current solution, while Carl posted his concrete description for modules functionality some half year(?) ago ... -pekr-
