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.

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.
amacleod
great
No mac binary?
Gregg
Saphirion has an internal one I think, but Atronix does not at this time.
Mainline R3 binaries are available at http://www.rebolsource.net/, and there is an OSX build there.
amacleod
avast is blocking the dev version from downloading....says dRep infection. Production version downloads fine.

Gregg
If Shixin doesn't see your note here, I'll make sure he knows.

There is no OSX version that supports a GUI yet. What can be done is rendering to images, but no visible GUI.

Not directly related to R3, but I started to play with SDL 2.0 and tried some examples, compiled with MinGW on windows 7, and I'm rather badly surprised about stability: I can easily get a crash with a few interactions (click, minimize, focus, ...). Not a good start! I post this here because I thought about possibly use SDL 2.0 for a Mac port for example. Anyone with experience to share on SDL 2.0 ?
