[REBOL] Re: About View

From: larry:ecotope at: 28-Mar-2001 11:28

Hi Carl Excellent! I am looking forward to an official release of View. I hope the decision will be to proceed. Two quick questions. 1) Will the official View (if released) include the reb capability? (I think that it is one of the best features of View.) 2) Will there be (in future) a runtime packaging capability, similar to that for Command? This would allow developers to create and distribute stand alone GUI applications for View. VID provides the best GUI creation environment I know of and it would make sense to provide for it's use in developing stand-alone apps. -Larry ----- Original Message ----- From: Carl Sassenrath <[carl--rebol--com]> To: <[rebol-list--rebol--com]> Cc: <[ally-list--rebol--net]> Sent: Wednesday, March 28, 2001 10:30 AM Subject: [REBOL] About View

and its future. We came up with an excellent solution that provides a free version of View that is upgradable to a professional version that includes a few additional components, such as command shell, library access, and encryption.

who want it. Of course, our hope is that all of you will want to buy the View/Pro product. And, that you would convince your friends, companies, comrades, and neighbors to buy it too. We need that to happen! Tell everyone.
> I should point out that REBOL/View is not REBOL/Link. There would be no
auto-sync, Serve side, desktop, installer, etc. But, it does provide a solid 1.0 for you to rely on. It would be official... and no more expiration woes.
> Unfortunately, I cannot provide more detail at this time. We are still
planning it out. However, if the decision is to proceed, we would release View/Pro 1.0 in less than a week.
