Glad to be of service. ;-)

Some people are just not natural bloggers, whereas others seem to emit reams of posts to the point where you wonder if it's all they ever do.

The problem with often releases of a language is that programmers have a shifting target to deal with. There would need to be versions defined as stable releases. Will DevBase be just a REBOL program, or accessable via a web-browser as well? For the casually interested, via the browser is really a must. (Even if only read-only.) -- Carl Read.
