Being alpha software (with missing key parts and rough edges that require polishing) isn't "incredibly dishonest", nor is it pretentious to introduce iterative changes in the nightly build (which is the main point of the said build, FYI).
I'm sorry that you have hard time with Red, but you should understand that it, as of now, it is itself a TBD, and that doesn't guarantee pleasant 1.0-like user experience. Consider to skim thru our starters' guides and ask questions here as you go - that's the best way to have fun and enjoy your stay with Redbol :wink:
@khwerz +1 to what @9214 said, to which I can add some commentary.
Since you're new, you don't know how things work, the project or the community. So take it slow, and be as nice to us as you want us to be to you. We're happy to help and answer questions, and before long you'll find your way around. You may see that some things are undocumented, to avoid wasted effort, and sometimes because things just fall through cracks. As @9214 said, our goal is not to doc all limitations in detail, because things can change fast, and then you have to remember to go back and update all those temporary notes.
In this case, an implementation note may help. When you use
help in the console, you see that
rename is an action. Actions are common functions which all datatypes share, but are not equally supported for all types. e.g.
find only works on series values. What this means is that we knew
rename was going to be an action, and therefore has a slot allocated for it. We also knew we wanted it to be R2 compatible, supporting files and urls when the time came. So it's a placeholder for now.
This is likely not the only TBD feature you'll hit, and don't be afraid to call out when you hit them. Even better, if you're willing, add a "TBD Notes" wiki page and put things there when they come up. Those are easy to edit OOB, can't affect code when you do, don't need PR management, etc. Low effort, and then we have a list to remind us about gaps that need filling. And your help will be greatly appreciated.

what. What am I doing wrong?
That's a much more specific question. :^)
Fullstack (Redlake in the U.S.) is the commercial arm of the Red Language project. It will offer products and services, as well as consulting. Red needs to mature to the point that we feel it's production ready for others before offering consulting services.
Does red.redPath config variable supposed to point at red executable
Yes, full path to toolchain binary.
What is Red Language Server?
