R3 cURL binding documentation!
This is a big deal, it means we can build standards compliant internet aware R3 applications ... right now!
Kaj de Vos:
It took a lot more time than I expected to create the documentation for the cURL binding; about as long as the binding itself. But here it is, together with the documentation for the example extension:

The binding is now officially released
R3 ODBC extension

I've updated the R3 ODBC extension to R3A110, get it here
This is the first version which works with date values.
Release 003 is here: glass-r003.zip
- Editor style and associated text editor application
- Encap friendly single file version of ALL glass libs, usable just like if they where external files.
- The encap version of glass is all packaged within its own .zip file inside the root of the distro, to make it easier to get started.
- New Image style, it also has a pretty cool image style demo app.
- quite a few nuts and bolts worked on here and there.
- reworked the folder structure a bit to make it cleaner (it shouldn't change much from now on), tell me what you think?
- Added original SVG files used to create icons as part of distribution
- Added a few reference glass-related images for demos and tutorials.
- Windows title handling is now automatic when you fill their labels. (shown in text editor)
- Many libs have had their APIs improved.
- Extensive HISTORY AND RELEASE NOTES in docs folder.
- Screenshots: image style tutorial, RED - REBOL text editor
Also, GLASS now has a very simple installer which will be updated at each release.
its a command line script, but uses a file requestor so you can setup where glass is downloaded and unpacked.

This past Saturday we held our Winter Syllable Conference: web.syllable.org
We introduced and handed out a sneak preview of our new Syllable Desktop live CD, introduced the REBOL 3 cURL binding
and went through our planned demonstration of setting up a website provider on Syllable Server, running on Cheyenne,
making a website on Desktop with my REBOL CMS, building it with REBOL 3 and uploading it to Server with the cURL binding,
with a short demo of the graphical version of Syllable Server thrown in
