So you don't call current version XPi?

I like the doc coming with Rugby distro. Very clean, understandable, short and good for starting to use rugby. btw: I would make Rugby even easier by using: sexec secure-serve get-rugby-service/secure-code secure-result-available? using: rexec/secure serve/secure get-rugby-service/secure result-available?/secure It would be even cleaner, easier to remember, powerfull, - rebolish. - just one refinement to remember, and the same function names to use ... Quite interesting part is: NOTE: In REBOL/COMMAND 2.0 rsa-generate-key does sometimes not function. As a side effect you cannot use secure transport with Command 2.0 In that case, ask Rebol Technologies for a different build. Is that confirmed /Command 2.0 has any such bug?

That's probably OK. Has current rewrite any speed difference in comparison to "old" Rugby? Also - what is, and what is not implemented? Profiler? Functions for adding, removing Rugby functions, exec-code? Adding a module system, module exchange and migration , etc? Thanks, -pekr-
