OpenBeOS app_server updates

Filed under the:  department.

So DarkWyrm has been pretty busy lately with his work on the OpenBeOS app_server. For those of you who don’t know, the app_server is the part of beos that controls all the window rendering, the mouse cursors, and all the general things that let you view and interact with windows, buttons, etc.

Anyway, DarkWyrm maintains a site where he posts news on his progress. Recently he announced that his implementation has a new cursor manager (custom systemwide cursors anyone?), added patches from David Chester to enhance the FreeType 2 rendering, and he posted a mockup of the OBOS R1 app_server look.

DarkWyrm stays very busy with this, and everyone benefits from his hard work. Thanks!

BeMail.org on it’s way back

Site News

Right… So by now all of you who use (or used) BeMail have noticed it’s down. Turns out that the domain expired a little while back, and the notification was sent to some old contact information.

Several people noticed and sent me an email, and one even went so far as to track me down on the phone (which I am afraid I didnt handle with too much grace as I was in a bit of shock.)

One “anonymous donor” went ahead and renewed the domain for 3 years, so it should be back as soon as DNS propagates. I will keep an eye on it and make sure it works. We are going to do everything we can to stabilize and be more active in the mainanence of bemail. It’s a pretty useful thing, and we are sorry for the hiccups.
