Technix from the BeOS Journal arranged an interview with Simon Gauvin of the now entirely lower cased version of beunited.org, and invited BeGroovy to join in the madness. We obviously accepted, and dove in to interview the head of one of the most interesting organizations on the BeOS scene. Read on for part 1 of our joint interview, and post questions for part 2 in the comments. Enjoy!

David Reid, BeOS coder extraordinnare, and former OpenBeOS contributor, has posted a public statement about why he left OpenBeOS after several questions from people. He sites serious leadership issues, and problems with the management of the codebase. Either this is a (very calmly stated) rant from someone who left under bad circumstances, or else it is a pretty damning statement. If it’s the later, I would hope the OpenBeOS team would seriously evaluate this, and use it as a wake up call. There are a lot of people’s hopes riding on you guys. Don’t screw it up.

OpenBFS Beta 2 released

Filed under the:  department.

Just noticed that Open-BFS has been updated to Beta2. The new version includes a tool called bfsinfo to track down information that will help them debug. According to the README, It also includes debugging support built in. This means that it is a bit slower due to logging activities, and that it weighs in around 1.2mb compared to the original BFS’s 238kb. BUT.. when debugging is off, it hits around 130kb, which means that in the end it’s smaller, faster, and has more features than the original (i.e. search on non-indexed attributes). Not a bad deal all in all. So test it out, and send your feedback to the OpenBFS team!

Hey peeps..

I am looking for 1 or 2 people to start posting news regularly on BeGroovy. I just don’t have the time to do much more than update now and then, and I would like to see the news flow.

If you have the time and the ability to post well written, sometimes amusing news, which has far to many commas, email me and volunteer. I will let you know if you are picked, etc etc, yada yada.
