[ALLY] Re: [REBOL] About View

From: philb:upnaway at: 29-Mar-2001 8:00

HI list, I'm a little confused .... this statement does not agree with the website (which I now assume is incorrect) .... Can someone tell us more about the difference between View and Link? I would certainly be buying either Rebol/View/Pro or Rebol/Link/Pro. (For those of thus that havent been beta testing Link) Would the price or Rebol/View/Pro be similar to Rebol/Link/Pro ?? Is there anything in View that wouldnt be in Link? (Like drawing functions).

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.

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.

planning it out. However, if the decision is to proceed, we would release View/Pro 1.0 in less than a week.
