A useless comment
Hello, I am waiting for Rebol/View for Mac OS X since 2 years. I think that the Rebol team is not productive and very slow. Actually, I am fed up, and I think I will forget this wonderful language mainly accessible for the win32 platform....what a shame! Regards, Miguel

It is coming but the wait is excruciating. Yesterday, I was rushing to get View running on something and here is =20 a summary of my experience: - My Cube refuses to boot with a Mac OS 9.1 disk since I have an upgraded processor. No way to install Classic without booting and installing a valid Mac OS 9 system. Anyway, my last experience with Rebol on Mac OS 8 wasn't great, due to limitations of that environment. - UAE is very slow, even when using the JIT version on a 1.2 Ghz processor with lot of cache. There is a network problem too: View can't connect via the emulated bsdsocket while other applications can. - Qemu is even slower and I have no space left to host a 2-8 Go image =20 of a Linux environment. - In last resort, I was ready to partition my disk in order to install Debian, but the installer refuses keyboard input and I didn't =20 go further than the "select your language" screen. It seems that new input device layer in the kernel doesn't work on some PowerMac. Now, I am a bit embarrassed as I need to write some demos for a cross-=20 platform application and I keep promising that View is a efficient tool for this kind of purpose. Any idea of a release date? Any progress since that report [1]? [1] Le 01-juil.-05 =E0 07:51, Miguel Lopez a =E9crit :

One question - do you guys read Are you part of AltME world? Because once again - if you would be, you would know Rebol is kind of LIVE last months. I can understand Miguel's frustration, but we went thru much darker ages with RT. Now I believe OS/X port is some weeks, or 2 - 3 moths ahead. Here's link to latest Carl's blog. I think OS-X is pretty high on to-do list. View 1.3 is done for two or so weeks, I hope we get SDK really soon, and ports to other platforms will follow shortly. In any case, maybe Carl does not read on ml, but maybe guys like Cyphre, Gabriele or Gregg, who helped RT with 1.3, know some internals they could share? -pekr-
