Not at least because Vanilla is based on REBOL, it's nice to see such a life-signal from REBOL Technologies (RT).

We also heartily welcome Carl Sassenrath, who recently joined this site.
We'll do a followup post within the next few days describing a few REBOL advancements which would be extremely profitable for Vanilla-development.
