well, not yet, but I expect REBOL 3.x to introduce incompatibilities, but for the good. I expect it to: - have multiasking/threading high concurency, maybe message based, dunno - have modules support - being just one .exe, the rest as dynamically loadable components - some parts even - as for gfx, sound, will support plug-in architecture (for codecs e.g.) - RT will keep Core (kernel) of the language and the rest will be open-sourced to some extent - other features already discussed - RIF, Rebin, language plug-ins for language extensibility - I heard also View will be overhauled - faster blitting, new compositing engine, better event system Simply put - all things we wished for in the last few years will hopefully come. If RT is concentrated, I expect Core 3.0 alpha till the end of the year personally, but that is just my guess based upon how quickly was Contra (1.0 to 2.0 rewrite) brought to life - it was actually few months IIRC. Now language as a technology is already pretty much in good state, so I expect RT "just" putting it into more robust surrounding framework .... Once again - that is just my opinion .... -pekr-
