[REBOL] Re: rebol 3 => 64 Bit problems

From: petr:krenzelok:seznam:cz at: 12-Feb-2009 18:08

Brian, I have some explanation for you, because imo it is important to understand the architecture, and not eventually spread incorrect information: If you would properly watch R3 development during last 2 - 3 years, you would probably know, what the intended model is going to be like? I mean - it was discussed several times on various places, that most of R3 is going to be opensourced. The only thing with closed source nature is going to be rebol.dll ( library, which is supposed to be platform agnostic. But - to get there, we first need DevBase running, and imo we are now very close to that state. RebDev (which is going to be renamed to DevBase later) needs some additions like file-sharing etc., and then C source codes for host (OS) parts are going to be uploaded. So yes, you will be able to build your own R3 distro, we are just not there. Of course, you will need Carl to recompile rebol.dll (.so) for your target platform, but as it is supposed to be platform agnostic, it should not be of a big problem. Recent R3 linux/OS-X builds are just attempt to try to port R3, nothing more, no official effort, just for testing purposes. So - let's wait few more months, and we will get there. And then - R3 for everyone :-) I surely want my R3 for Windows Mobile (HTC Touch Diamond is my next phone :-) Best regards, -pekr-
