There's a new page for R3 releases that gets updated automatically by the build process. (Of course, you may need to F5/reload it, depending on your browser settings and ISP caching policies.)

The page is: R3 Downloads

Of course, if you already have R3 (and also have direct, non-proxy HTTP), it is faster to get new versions by typing this line:

>> upgrade

They are compressed, so they download faster.

Just one small note - it would be nice, if releases page would provide link to release notes - I found them both important and usefull for users ....

Has anyone managed to get the OS X PPC version to work? Recipe?

I downloaded version A43 and type upgrade. It works... but it downloaded the Windows version even I'm working with a Mac Intel ;-)

Luis: I think Robert did. Note that it's just a raw executable binary file, not a tar or gzip. If your browser cannot save it as a file, use R2 and:

  • Run rebol from shell
  • write/binary %r3 read/binary http://www...
  • quit rebol
  • chmod +x r3
  • ./r3 (to run it)

    Goldevil: What a surprise! A script bug? If someone wants to look it over, let me know... or I'll check it out when I get some time.

    Goldevil, I remember now... It just looks like windows version, but it's not. Just rename the file (remove the .exe), and it will work fine. I'll get that bug fixed.

    Erm... Looks like I just needed the chmod +x...

    'Graphics functions missing. Demo cannot be run.'

    Little steps...into big holes... :)

    Arrows (up, down) don't have the command history.
