[REBOL] Re: Checkbox state is not changing - maybe Allen Kamp updates his View

Hello Anton,

Sorry if my words mislead your mind: _I_ haven't asked anybody for doing anything. I just waived a flag, gave a notification. It is everybody's (specifically every " gurus' ") personal issue if he would react and work for _ME_(?) or not. REBOL community _painfully_ misses organized documentation. Being a rather small group and RT being a really small company as well, optimal "human resource management" is AN issue.
> You might want to send feedback to Allen with this,
Allen updated his FAQ beforehand and contacted me for verifying the code (which I indeed did): Now his VIEW FAQ is up-to-date upon checkboxes.

It is not a matter of religion - I think. If something worked one way in a release and works other way in a more recent release then the _change_ itself is a bit irritating. MS changed the document format of MS Office with almost every release making all users mad. WordPerfect has not changed the WP format for years - besides its typographic properties were far more advanced "ab ovo". Word just tried to race behind. If REBOL issues considerable modifications (e.g. look at 'stylize + 'with) in each release of VID then one may really ask: is the View framework so fallible & inmature that not only behind-the-scenes operations but the API itself should be reconfigured for each release?

I appreciate it.
