Gobe Software

Gobe Software, makers of the Productive office suite, are offering a significant discount on the next release of the suite to users of the BeOS version of productive. The new version is not 3.0, but rather a relaunch on Windows and Linux, and the license authorizes you to use the software anywhere in your family, on whatever platforms you like. Normally this would sell for 129.99, but BeOS users can get it for 39.99 if they preorder now. Read on for the official announcement. BTW - while we recieved this announcement and the opentracker announcement, we have copied these directly from BeForever, mainly for simplicity of access at this late date.

OpenTracker finds a new home

Be recently announced that their OpenTracker server was going down permenantly, and suggested that someone move it to SourceForge. Well, Axel Dörfler answered that challenge, and moved it to opentracker.sourceforge.net. Source control is now cvs instead of perforce, but it’s there, and the server is stable. It may be a while until we see any new official beos releases, even under a different name/group. But in the meantime, developing on opentracker is a great way to move the OS along. You can discuss any ideas or plans in our OpenTracker forums. Read on for the announcement Axel sent to everyone.

Site News

Hey all… many of you have been wondering exactly what’s up with BeGroovy. One of you even sent leBuzz an email about it. This is just an explanation.

Basically, I have been really busy, and simply havent had the time to update the site. There hasn’t been MAJOR news for a while, so nothing pressing made me update. And the time I did have to work on web sites was spent coding the new BeUnited site, based on Helmar’s design. I will post news about that later on, but check it out. It’s all about how to save BeOS.

In any case, I am actually going to be quiet again for the rest of this week, since i am on the road for 3 days, and saturday is my birthday. Then next week I am going to take a train into New York to see the damage with my own eyes, and try to get a sense of the tragedy from something other than TV. But in the meantime, I will post some news tonight to keep people happy. :)

Oh yeah, the sidebars not working is a cron issue. I am working on it, but i havent nailed it yet, due to time constraints.

Also, time is becoming more of an issue as I look for work, and work on several other planned sites. If any of you think you can make a contribution to the site, such as posting news or such, get in touch with me at nutcase@begroovy.com and let me know how,why,etc… basically convince me to give you news script access. We need all the help we can get to keep the site lively during this somewhat news-less time. Thanks.
