AltME: R3 Building and Porting

Would you expect cairo be any smaller? I think not. The thing is, that it might be part of many systems, so you don't necessarily care ....

Cyphre
The good thing is one can switch agg to cairo(or any other 2d vector api) with relatively small effort even in the current R3 (I don't consider the abstraction code fully finished yet and plan to do some cool changes that give us blazing fast HW accelerated graphics).
In fact, it should be enough to implement   equivalent of host-draw-api-agg.cpp interface that wraps all the current DRAW commands. Could be quite some fun to do that :)
Pekr
Cyphre - is there any estimate of when such abstraction code could be finished? Just curious ....
Cyphre
AFAIK Currently R3 developement is not at the top of priority list for Saphirion so I can't tell you any estimate. Sadly, I have no spare time to do it as an hobby project at the moment but I hope things will change over time.

All I hope is that the Rebol Alliance will not only consolidate the code base but also the different versions issue tracking data including the R3 CureCode issues).

Watching for "blazing fast HW accelerated graphics" on Android.

Any update on the "unifiying" Rebol 3 project?
Maxim
still progressing, though not much to report as I was pretty much offline for 2 weeks.
note that the alliance is not just about the R3 repository, but that is one big part of it.
I have started to work on the web aspect of it again. so it should start having some presence next week.
Maxim
begining next week, I should be pulling the changes from atronix into the rebol-alliance repo.   so I get that's a sign that its starting ;-)

I'm considering a project that i wanted to do in R3 instead of R2 but when ever I looked into R3 it just seemed a little fragmented with the different forks and missing pieces. Its exciting to see that its coming together. Thanks Maxim and to all that are involved.

Probably asked a bunch of times but if were to start a gui r3 project which version would be best to use that would be most compatible with the upcoming unified version and where would I find it?

Thanks Gregg

And Saphirion's docs are at https://github.com/saphirion/documentation. Shixin has integrated their gui work into the Atronix version.
amacleod
So only the one version and it includes gui?
dev release or production?
Gregg
Correct.
Dev has some new features in it, like FFI and greatly improvec CALL.
And encap.
