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

From: apwing:zonnet:nl at: 10-Jan-2004 13:05

Hi Steven, 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 somehow crippled. 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 ;-) Kind regards, Arie
