I would imagine RunRev is aware of it, but I doubt they have any 
involvement in it.

IIRC this is one of several old projects from HyperCard enthusiasts over 
the years, including FreeCard, XULCard, and others.

I believe XION is from Rebecca Bettencourt, a project she's mentioned on 
the HC forum a few times over the years.

Rebecca's interest seems to be more in the language itself, and as a 
command-line tool without an accompanying GUI object model I'm not sure 
what sorts of tasks it's anticipated to be used for.

Good to see she's still at it, but definitely not affiliated with 
LiveCode.
