AltME: Announce


Thanks Graham
if anybody has the ambition to build one :)

Prot-smtp.reb is now working sufficiently to send secure email via and on port 465  See

After the recent outage at and the subsequent postiing of the script library on github, I downloaded my own personal copy of the library out of fear of another disruption.  I have that copy tucked away on my computer, but I also put it on my little web site in case such a backup would be useful to others.  If that was improper in any way I would be happy to delete it, and would not be offended.  The location is here:

Thanks Steven.

Red release 0.6.3 is ready. Support of macOS.
Next best in this release must be the test backend allowing automated testing of GUI!

Minor changes:
- Simplified code now that Red 0.6.3 supports date! and delete
- All test cases (200) now work with both R3 and Red 0.6.3
- Basic documentation available at

now features ODBC in the main line and not just branch.  A sample ODBC test script for Firebird 3 on Windows 64 can be found at
This was written a couple of months ago for the odbc branch so may need some changes.  Discussion here
ODBC is on all branches except Android.

Minor changes:
- Refactor to work with Rebol2 and Ren-C
- All test cases (200+) now work with R2, R3, Ren-C and Red
- Windows-specific features disabled on non-windows platforms
- Updated to cover Excel, SQLCMD, SQLite, PDF dependencies

Implements a (largely) HTML5 compliant markup parser in Red and Ren-C and LOAD-MARKUP function using said parser. This is an experimental hybrid script and uses Red macros in a way that might conflict with other Red code--use with caution.
LOAD-MARKUP returns a block akin to Rebol 2's LOAD/MARKUP except that attributes are contained in a MAP! following the associated tag and self-closing tags are indicated by a </> closing tag following the tag or attributes (if present).
To do: tree-based model and DOM (likely similar to AltXML). Some work to be done here--the HTML5 rules for tree-building are labyrinthine.
