> View is nearly complete with this release. There is still some work to do
on edit text, and a general cleanup sweep needs to happen soon. However,
I'm quite happy with where it is today. Packs a lot of punch for 360K.
> The next big focus for View is to get the Express features into it:
encryption, authentication, certification, notification, and
synchronization. A lot of 'tions, but you'll see an Express icon pop up in
the next release.... useful stuff.
Huh, what? :-) I thought Express is commercial product. What's more -
shouldn't such functions become part of Core too? OK, so you will add
features to /View, which will make our lives easier. That's great.
... Let me ask about Core technology too. Now as you are nearly done with
View (in real no sw product is ever finished :-), maybe you could find a
little bit of a free time and tell us, what's planned for REBOL in let's say
one year term. It would be nice to introduce some other advancement for
Core, as improved parser (parsing opened ports for handling bug files,
etc...), refinement propagation :-) (old one :-), dialect propagation (pekr
TM :-)), load, read with /dirs /files or simply some stuff to speed certain
operations up, etc.... or at least, when aproximately are modules going to
... there are alway two levels of stuff related to languages advancement.
Advancement by adding new classess, functionality etc., and advancement to
language and its functionality itself. I always liked to check, what's
coming with new versions of products in technology itself ...

happening across the street from REBOL. It's Ukiah's Read Tail Ale.... so,
now that 0.10.35 is done, I need a brew.
Ah, OK, so, hurry up, just started new view and have few comments :-) As I
just returned from JimBeam party, I am too lazy to send it to feedback ;-)
- edit-text %somefile.r does nothing and returns to console. You have to
type do-events in console to proceed, and then file-requester appears,
ignoring the fact the name of file was already submitted. If you don't
select anything and close file-requester, it returns an arror ...
- request-list buggy too - second invocation of request list ignores new
block of data, untill you restart rebol (haven't checked how to reinitialize
it though). It could also use arrow keys for navigation ....
- thanks for fixing date requestor. I also noticed smal note about more
copying of fields. So using references aproach seems to be more complicated
when creating more complex stuff? :-) Seems the same to me as you described
threads - they share the stuff and sometimes it is complicated to trace down
the "strange" behavior ...
Cheers, yuck, 4:15 am here 8-)
