Orca is a REBOL-like interpreter which can be used under the terms of either the GPL or LGPL.
The interpreter is a C library so that C/C++ applications can use Orca as an embedded scripting system.
Orca creator has stopped the development of Orca to focus his efforts on Thune. The project however has not died. Three other developers: Anton, Kaj and Jaime, are planning to continue its development.
Most of the core is complete but many functions and natives are not implemented so only simple scripts can be run. About 50% of natives have some implementation.
The scripts in the tests/working/ directory run on both Orca and REBOL Core 2.6.0. The library name may have to be changed at some point as there is a already an Orca language.

What's New in This Release:
· This package release rolls up small bugfixes and enhancements that were made over more than a year.
· The source package is now easier to compile: the correct makefile for Syllable and Linux is already in place.
· The BZip2 library and its headers need to be available for compiling. Of course, it's easiest to use the binary package for Linux, which can be unzipped anywhere.
