Rebol 3

Which Rebol 3 implementation do you use?

I've use the Android release from Saphirion the most. I still use mostly R2 on desktop and server, although have a few R3 server scripts running on Linux shared hosts. If you want to use R3 on desktop, be sure to look at the Atronix versions.

Nick, do you develop with Rebol on Android? I will use R3 mostly on server. Which implementation is recommended for using on servers?

Where can I find the Android release from Saphirion? On their website, there is only a .exe to download.

I only found "http://development.saphirion.com/experimental/builds/". Are these the latest releases?

At the link you posted, click the Android folder and download r3-droid.apk . I use the Android version mostly for utility scripts. Saphirion does have an encapper to create stand alone Android APK files, but they never released it publicly.

May I ask again: What is the best Rebol 3 implementation for server/command applications?

I'm not the best person to ask about R3 on server. For critical apps, I prefer R2. You can try a variety of /Core versions from links which originate at http://r3al.org/download-rebol3.html
I don't think there's much difference between those Core versions. One core version which has split away from the mainline versions is by Hostile Fork: http://blog.hostilefork.com/rebol-state-union-june-2015/ (not sure if he even has CGI capabilities in that version - he was working on some fundamental language and source file cleanups...)
