Wired finally

Wired has a new article up about an old topic to Be’ers - Finalscratch. No mention is made as to which OS it runs on, but I personally have some serious doubts that it’s BeOS anymore. Someone please prove me wrong. :)

[Update: by nutcase] Hey there.. looks like someone proved Deej wrong. Mark-Jan Bastian, the lead Finalscratch developer, emailed us the following:

As the main developer of FinalScratch, I can confirm that the ProFS version that is used by Richie Hawtin and John Acquaviva are running under BeOS R5 on a laptop. The ProFS ‘turnkey’ systems, available in limited quantities by the end of this month, are also running under BeOS.

Sounds like confirmation to me. :)

Rounding up the weekend

Just a weekend roundup of a few notible things…

The BeOS Journal is back online, now maintained by Chris Simmons (aka Technix) and Adam McNutt (aka Kancept). Note that the url is now either .org or .net, and no longer (not yet?) the .com url. You’ll also want to read the interview there with Nathan and BGA concerning the new Mail Daemon Replacement that they are working on. Sounds like it is going to do wonders for email on BeOS.

leBuzz has a couple of noteworthy items. First, BeOS Radio is celebrating it’s first birthday (yeah, it has been that long!). They’re going to have some contests, and want some audio greetings from everyone in the community. Second, Christopher Kemp has written an article, entitled “Anatomy of a Song”, on how to go about creating an entire song on BeOS. Some good info there, should you want to record a few things for BeOS Radio or your own uses.

BeForever, on a rather down note, reports that Maarten Hekkelman will not be continuing development of Pepper for BeOS. Pe was/is a cool programmer’s text editor (or so I’ve heard), and it’s a shame that we won’t see the re-vamped version of that.

And finally, there’s some interesting threads in our forums concerning the upcoming Shareholder’s vote to sell Be’s assets to Palm. There’s some argument over “Yes” or “No”, and one of the threads (here) is getting long. The other, shorter one, is here. So tell us what you think. :)

[UPDATE:]Kancept mentioned in the forums that he is also trying to bring in the now defunct newbe.org site under their wings as well, so you should see that one come back online in the coming weeks as well.
