[REBOL] Re: About View

From: alan_otterstad:mikronvinyl at: 28-Mar-2001 11:15

Carl, I am definitely interested in the /VIEW/PRO and the /CORE/PRO. Especially at those prices. I'm gonna have to balk this time at the /COMMAND price tho. Just outta my range is all. And I'm sure that many of those on this list will also support your company in this manner. we all are in the same boat ya know, trying to make a living. I'm sure everyone here realizes that you need to make money also to keep supporting Rebol. And from what I've read in the list you have some people out there that are fairly commited to using Rebol as a viable cross-platform programming language and tool. Keep up the good work there. thx alan

About REBOL/View... funny that you ask, because: The REBOL team held a three hour meeting yesterday to discuss REBOL/View and its future. We came up with an excellent solution that provides a free version of View that is upgradable to a professional version that includes a few additional components, such as command shell, library access, and encryption. The demand for such a product seems high. We get a lot of email from users who want it. Of course, our hope is that all of you will want to buy the View/Pro product. And, that you would convince your friends, companies, comrades, and neighbors to buy it too. We need that to happen! Tell everyone. I should point out that REBOL/View is not REBOL/Link. There would be no auto-sync, Serve side, desktop, installer, etc. But, it does provide a solid 1.0 for you to rely on. It would be official... and no more expiration woes. Unfortunately, I cannot provide more detail at this time. We are still planning it out. However, if the decision is to proceed, we would release View/Pro 1.0 in less than a week. Please let us know your thoughts. REBOL as always, -Carl
