The first Unicode R3 was released today to selected early testers.

It's taken a lot of work to get here. A lot of work. Today, at this stage, we're just testing the basic operation. There's still work ahead, but we're at least seeing our efforts rewarded.

Within minutes of the release, Jerry Tsai sent me this image, and I more deeply felt the impact R3 is going to have...

Also, it was so cool to me that this new R3 kernel... including all datatypes, native functions, mezz functions, compression, host/device model, checksums and hashes, PARSE, help strings, and system object...

Was only 141 KB as a .zip file!

So, our anti-complexity, anti-bloat, downright rebollious philosophy holds true... even with the advances and Unicode capabilities of R3.

So nice to know it can be done.
