[REBOL] Re: Start in R2 or wait for R3 stable?

There are some differences between R2 and R3 but much of the code is usable. This article,
written by Sunanda, will give you a feel for the type of changes - http://www.rebol.org/art-display-article.r?article=j26z
The more recent releases of R2 have some of the new features of R3 back-ported
into them. They go under the name R2/Forward and were written by Brian Hawley. You can
read a little about them at http://www.rebol.com/cgi-bin/blog.r?view=0447.
You will get many different answers to when we can expect the stable R3. Mine is that
in the main the "kernel" of R3 is already quite stable. However, many of the other parts
are not stable and not even developed, the GUI and network support for example. Many
of these "other parts" are now open-sourced and I perceive that their development is
speeding up. This is my view and others will undoubtedly differ.
