We should celebrate. REBOL 3.0 has now processed (most of them actual code fixes) and closed more than 1000 debug tickets during its alpha development:

This diagram shows the number of opened vs. closed tickets over the last few months:

R3 is stable enough and it is getting better everyday. I really appreciate what you have done. Your vision of computing and insistence on good design will make REBOL a great product.

It appears that R3 is mature enough to proceed towards a beta release

The link to Cure Code seems broken.

ww rebol com / article/ curecode org results in a 404.

Should it be www curecode org/ or perhaps www rebol net / wiki / CureCode ?

(at)Jerry Tsai:

I agree that Rebol is a great product. Now it's time it gets more widespread in the IT enviroments, otherwise all this good work done by Carl and others will remain available just for a bunch of enthusiasts like us, which is not good.

(at)Carl:

How much would an effective ad-marketing cost ? I know Rebol Technologies has limited budget, maybe u could hire some ad agency to make Rebol get known.

I've been promoting REBOL for years. Something I wonder why I am doing this. I should be selfish, using REBOL quietly and letting others using ancient technologies, so I could do my projects much faster than they do.

Whoohoo! Graphical representation of progress! Now, where did I hear that before... :)

This should really be up there on the fornt page of R3 dev, auto-updating...

Cheers,

Luis.

Was going to add some other stuff to the initial post but the excitement won over me...

(at) Luca: I get your point about visibility. When it come to languages, especially nowadays, cross platform deployment is 'preferred', and when versions are allowed to lapse it's not usually seen as a priority for that platform and this can put people off (and I'm one of them!). I think on the 'marketing' side there needs to me more done in the app space (as well as the 'Powered by Rebol' on sites): I think this is one way most people get to see what can be done. I had an audio app lined up for Rebol (which is now half way developed in another language) - What stopped me? Deployment. I want to target Win/Mac/Linux in one go, and _easily_! My current system (it does have its own limitations) creates standalones at the click of a few buttons.

When I see something cool (cross platform...) I look around the site to try to find what it was written in so that I can see what strengths that language has.

Cheers,

Luis.

Encouraging feedback, thanks for posting it.

Ged: the CureCode link is fixed now.

Congratulations Carl! Thank you for all your dedicated work (and also for anyone helping you - not sure who that is these days - Henrik and Brian?).

... and I LOVE hearing talk about marketing :) REBOL needs links, links, links, links, links, on as many web sites as possible, with targeted search words on other well ranked pages, all pointing to http://rebol.com. That's the best way to promote online. Any noise we make as a community, in blogs, forums, etc., all helps to draw search attention.

A few new killer apps would also draw attention. I'm working on little VOIP and video conference apps (seems like a good fit for our messaging language :) If anyone wants to help with MAC and Linux, perhaps a R3 demo project could help bring some attention to our new tool :)

Nick, I'd love to help if I could, but I consider myself merely an interested beginner with Rebol (and long-time Linux user). Best of luck anyway!

NOTE: I'm actually looking for cross-platform VOIP and videoconferencing apps. In a multi-OS family, cross-platform is essential.

http://x264dev.multimedia.cx/?p=249 " 01/13/2010 (10:23 pm) x264: the best low-latency video streaming platform in the world Filed under: low latency, ratecontrol, speed, streaming, threading, x264 :: x264 has long held the crown as one of the best, if not the best, general-purpose H.264 video encoder. With state-of-the-art psy optimizations and powerful internal algorithms, its quality and performance in “normal” situations is mostly unrivalled....."

Nick i see its a long time since you posted that and still no progress i assume as nothings been posted here to help a real new rebol view application rise to general popularity in the wider world yet again.

but you could make a simple view client/server GUI and feed your content into the current x264 through a pipe for "the best low-latency video streaming platform" and make it all into a self contained exe with the latest windows version perhaps.
