Okay, so I’ve been lacking… here’s the stuff from the past week or so. I’ll try to keep things more up to date. Email me if you’d like to help me do so.

BeNews posted a bit of news about Xentronix’s Sample Studio.

Looks like yellowTab is back in business, possibly with Cosmoe.

Okay, worthy of it’s own headline amist all the missed news this past week? Hell Yeah!

My all-time favorite BeOS time waster, BShisen, has been uploaded to BeBits. Version 1.3 brings a new level of competition to BShisen - high scores are stored online, pitting you against the times of the greatest Shisen’ers in the community. :P

Grab it, play with it, have fun - and wait until I’m able to upload some of my scores! ;)

Dane put up a little reminder on leBuzz that TuneTracker, the professional quality radio automation software for BeOS, will no longer be available at the current $99.95 price. TuneTracker’s price will increase to $149.95 after this Wednesday, May 15th, with the official debut of TuneTracker 2 on June 1st. All of those that purchase TuneTracker 1 at the lower price will automatically be upgraded to version 2 for free, so why wait?

Update : The TuneTracker2 site is now live. - Nutcase

Formerly only known as the Atheos fork (and often jokingly refered to as FrankensteinOS due to its combination of Linux, Atheos, BeOS, and MacOSX), Bill Hayden has revealed the website for Cosmoe - the Compatible Open-Source Multi Operating-system Environment.

Posted by:Deej on Monday, 13 May, 2002 @ 8:08 AM

Zegenie has recently written in to me that his BeOSUpdate package will be online as a public beta today. The application makes it easy for developers to create updates for applications, and even easier for users to get these updates. I’m posting this now, as I won’t be around for the rest of the day, but you can keep checking at BeOSUpdate’s website for the public beta (and a new site design) throughout the day, if you are so inclined.

You’ll also need Don’t Worry from BeBits, because it is dependant on one of the libraries. (This news item also blatantly ripped from beos.loved.com - thanks moooooo! ;) )

Just recieved this in my inbox:

Hello, just thought I’d let you know the nurbana port to BeOS was
successful. It should appear on the website sometime saturday afternoon.

The web site is of course nurbana.cx and the product is of course a very cool free NURBS 3d modelling system.

Now to get it ported to OpenBeOS, BlueEyedOS, or whatever the Atheos Forked one is called these days…

Good news? I think so. ;)
