Version Consistency All products use same version numbers. For example, REBOL/View
is now 2.7.0, just like REBOL/Core.
Different Compiler This build was done on a different compiler (from the last 6 years).
Although in theory this should make very little difference, it is always
possible for new problems to occur.
Expanded Main Frame (Word Table) The main-frame has been expanded from 8K to 32K entries. This is
sometimes called the word table, although that term is not precise.
It is the global context frame, and it is locked in memory due to
direct access via C functions. (The REBOL 3.0 module architecture
removes this restriction entirely).
Explore Viewtop Folders Alt-clicking (right mouse button) on the background of a viewtop
folder now allows an explore option. On platforms that support it
(e.g. Windows) this will call the file directory explorer
application. On others, it will open the browser to the directory
Crash Alert The REBOL crash dialog box has been updated to be more "friendly"
(in REBOL 3.0 style).
Internal String Changes C strings and word symbols have been consolidated into REBOL code.
Makes the program binary smaller. Watch for bugs in REBOL dialects such
as parse, draw, effects, etc.
System/Standard Many internal standard objects are now exported. Type: help
system/standard. This is a result of the string change above.
System/Console/Lookup There is now a small internal function
used for console filename completion lookup. This resulted from the
string change made above.
Users have already reported these problems on this release:
No BOUND? Function Users requested that BIND? be renamed to BOUND? This is
consistent with FIND and FOUND? -- Moved to next release.
Draw Oddities Something wrong with DRAW function. Results do not look
correct. This is the result of changes made to the DRAW dialect
Proxy Problem User reported that network proxy is being ignored for
