With regard to the website, it's not there because we just recently made the
decision. The site will be updated soon to reflect the new product.
The primary reason for not releasing Link/World or Link/Pro has to do with
server loading. REBOL/Serve was designed to handle hundreds of users, not
hundreds of thousands of users. It was created to be used by small to medium
sized organizations and companies.
In addition, we do not have the staff to deal with the volume of
administrative issues that would come up (e.g. "I forgot my password," etc.)
Note that Link/World and Link/Pro would only connect to REBOL Technologies'
servers. To use Link for your own organization, you would need to buy
View can provide many of the same benefits of developer support by using a
network of Reb sites. This also makes it easier for developers to add their
own content and scripts to the network. The View desktop will be available
in the View 1.1 product release.
View 1.0 simply includes the View and VID functions. View/Pro 1.0 adds to it
the shell, library, and encryption modules. It does not include database
access modules, which will continue to be provided only in REBOL/Command.
