[REBOL] FreeBSD Released for V4 - Core, View, SDK, Cmd

From: carl::rebol::com at: 22-Oct-2003 8:46

Several people have mentioned in Feedback (yes, you see we do read it) that our FreeBSD distributions were based on such old versions of BSD, that they did run easily on newer versions of BSD. That has now been fixed. We just released REBOL (all products) on FreeBSD V4.8. Sorry about the delay. We often build REBOL on older versions of operating systems to keep them as backward compatible as possible. For example, we build Redhat Linux on V5.2 so it runs on OS versions 5, 6, 7, and 8. This is a tricky business, which is why we built FreeBSD on V4 rather than V5. So, anyway both FreeBSD and OpenBSD have been updated this summer. Tell all your BSD friends about it. Thanks. -Carl Sassenrath REBOL Technologies
