Browser Plugin Update
You may have noticed that we released a REBOL/View 1.3.2 compatible version fo the browser plugin. Now, all of those nice draw demos can be done within your web browsers. In addition, we have a Firefox/Mozilla version of the plugin (but you must install it manually at this time).
The two big features we are working on right now are:
:Multi-DLL - to allow multiple instances of REBOL within a web page. Each is run as a separate process, independent of the other.
:Auto-update - makes it possible for us to update the REBOL plugin automatically. This is tricky because we want to provide a smooth upgrade method and not store each release of REBOL on your hard disk (unless it is an entirely new version of REBOL, such as 3.0).
We are also looking at a number of other features, as well as better support for installing in Firefox/Mozilla browsers (and eventually other browsers as well).
