Over 70 REBOL Experimental Binaries Available
We are proud to announce the launching of the REBOL
experimental build process.
In order to improve our testing process, we have
developed (using REBOL of course) a fully automated
build and release pipeline that allows us to put out
software more often. With the press of a key we are now
able to rebuild and upload experimental versions of
REBOL that contain the latest bug fixes and enhancements.
You benefit from more frequent releases. We benefit
from the testing and feedback that you provide.
At this time, over 70 separate REBOL binaries are being
made available from our automated build system, and you
can download these binaries directly from our web site.
However, in order to achieve this more rapid software
release process, some sacrifices are required:
The experimental builds have only received rudimentary
testing before being published. Also, at this time we
have not enacted an automated process to track the
changes evident in these versions of REBOL, so the
features of the build may not be immediately apparent.
Additionally, some of the builds may not be equivalent
in some features to others. Some of the experimental
REBOL/command builds do not all have database
connectivity, and the type of database connectivity may
differ across platforms.
The experimental builds contain bug fixes for some
commonly reported problems. Please submit bug
reports for all problems you encounter using the
All files are provided under license of our end user
license agreement and beta test agreements. Currently,
our experimental builds have 30 day beta expiration

We don't expect these experimental builds to be
Frankensteins or anything. They're likely to be as
stable as the last release of REBOL, but with anything
experimental: use at your own risk.
