Because the change log shows lists of tickets closed, you don't really get to see the details about nice new features. Too bad there's not a blog like that somewhere (it's not me, hint hint).

For example. You may not have noticed that in A94 you can...

Get and set time fields in dates:

d: now
29-Oct-2009/16:55:32-7:00
d/hour
16
d/hour: 1
1
d
29-Oct-2009/1:55:32-7:00

Get a map! of your environment variables:

list-env
make map! [
"ALLUSERSPROFILE" "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users"
"APPDATA" "C:\Documents and Settings\Carl\Application Data"
"CommonProgramFiles" "C:\Program Files\Common Files"
...

Perform logical shifts (in addition to the existing arithmetic shifts):

to-hex a: shift 1 63
#8000000000000000
shift a -63
-1
shift/logical a -63
1

Yes, I'd like to have the time to write a nice blog of what's new in R3, but I'm maxed out with design, coding, testing... and the existing docs and blogs. But, if someone wants to go for it, I'd be more than happy to link it.

Sites like Wordpress.com host free blogs. Easy to setup. Many nice features.
