[REBOL] Re: What else don't I know

sometime ago I had a similar experience, but the other way round. In the
REBOL dictionary I found function descriptions that were not present in the
actual / current REBOL release.
When I asked about this on the ML I was pointed to a newer beta version. So,
the documentation sometimes is updated before the corresponding REBOL
release is Generally Available (GA).
I think it's a pity that beta releases are so long in beta stage! Even more
because it appeared to me that some beta versions are crippled in some ways
as well. So, one has to choose BETWEEN the official release and miss out
beautiful new functions AND a beta release with nice new functions, but
It would be nice if RT would supply a base release with fixes that can be
applied individually by users.
I know that currently a lot is being done to produce a fresh GA release of
View, which is quite nice. Perhaps after that the documentation will be more
in sync as well ;-)
