[ALLY] View 1.1 Beta 1

From: carl::rebol::com at: 14-Apr-2001 19:58

If you are interested and have some time over the next 36 hours, you can try REBOL/View 1.1 Beta 1. This release includes the View Desktop and access to the mighty world wide reb, WWR. But to use it, you have to pass this test first: REBOL [] write/binary/allow %view.exe decompress read/binary [read write execute] This beta is available only for Windows at this time. This is not an open beta. There is no link on our site. It can only be obtained thru the above script. We will be releasing 1.1 on Monday... including many other platforms. I hope you can live with the colors of the desktop. Skins will not be available until 1.2. We'll be working on the docs tomorrow. Peek at some of the files in your view/desktop installation directory: such as bookmarks.r, services.r, filetypes.r, and history.r. Look at the index.r files in the public tree. Notice that index files require a script header that includes Type: 'index. Problems with this 1.1 beta should be reported to feedback, but if you find a really serious problem, please post it to this list as well. REBOLing along, -Carl
