A summary of what's happening in the REBOL community.

Somewhen in September, 2008

Syllable Server

In the "you scratch my back ..." department

This is a (reformatted for this blog ... mistakes may well be mine) reprint of a news release regarding Syllable Server. Many thanks to Kaj de Vos and the Syllable team. Syllable is now listed on the GNU/Linux distribution website, distrowatch/syllable. Well done and congratulations.

News Release

The third release of Syllable Server has been published. This is an
important release, because it is the first one that focused on making
the system actually usable as a server. A number of popular servers were added and configured, and also several innovative REBOL software stacks

Out of the imaginary box, Syllable Server is now ready for such things as accepting remote SSH log-ins over the network, running a web server on the Cheyenne cheyenne-server.org REBOL server, running an FTP server and several more.

Special attention has been paid to programmability, with support for developing Model-View-Controller web applications in QuarterMaster QuarterMaster and networking applications with the REBOL/Services REBOL/LNS Service Oriented Architecture.

The Genode genode.org Nitpicker windowing system is also included.

Read the rest in the full changelog. An extensive manual manual was also written, which is easy to follow.

As usual, both a BitTorrent download found here (preferred) and a regular download are available (80 MB 7-Zip archive). Please use the torrent if you can.

I hope you can do something useful with this, and if you do, please let us know, maybe through dropping by at http://syllable.org .

Cheers from the REBOL Week crew. With announcments like this, it's going to be another good week.
