Does anyone know how to contact Cyphre?
I would like to hire Cyphre to port R3-GUI, if he's still interested. If anyone knows how to contact him, please let me know. Or if anyone is still talking regularly with Carl, I'm willing to pay his rate for a port of R2/View to some new platforms. Or if anyone else wants the work...

I could make a token contribution to the R2/View project. My approaching fixed-income status would keep it a small contribution. Sometimes something that works is better than something that is perfect but does not exist.

I appreciate that Steve :)

why are you asking for this ?
What about funding together an unified engine made of R3GUI and R2VID and the bestpart of other engines like VID EXT KIT, RebGUI...
Henrik, Cyphre and Rebolek could work together on this....

I'd like to see the rich history of code written in R2 run on modern platforms.

I'd be happy to see any full featured version (with GUI, graphics, networking (with a full suite of protocols), sound, etc.) of any Rebol language (R3, Red, etc.), working in the browser, on iOS, and on Android. Until then, no Rebol language will be used as a mainstream tool, and the community will stay small. All I've ever wanted to see is a bigger community. With a big community, the ecosystem flourishes and tools, examples, etc. stay current.

I still do not have the "big picture". Since VID relies on REBOL like language, are you talking about a full port, including REDBOL or some other approach ?

I'm talking about porting all of R2, or some other feature complete version of a Rebol language to run in a web-brower, iDevices, etc., in the same way the Cyphre ported R3 and R3-GUI to run on Android, so that a complete Rebol environment exists to develop and deploy apps on those platforms.
