BeOS 5 PE Max Edition Version 4 Beta 1 is on the streets… you can see the development log here, as well as download it from here. I’m getting a whopping 4K/sec right now, so the word is out that it’s out. I’ve shot Vasper an email to ask to temporarily mirror it here at BeGroovy as well to help out with the bandwidth…
After careful consideration and some email discussions with the OS Drawer folks, BeGroovy has decided to cease plans to create a developer SVN repository here. There were a couple of main thoughts behind this decision. First and foremost, OS Drawer is headed up by Andrea Bernardi, long time BeOS community member and head of IT Bug, so I have no fears that such a repository would cease to exist anytime in the future. Second, OS Drawer has an existing server and architecture, we’d need to still build ours up. And third, we have our work cut out for us here, since we plan on a couple of other new features, and want to rebuild the core site and forums to a new system. It makes sense for us to support Andrea and OS Drawer, rather than duplicate any effort. So, the beunited source code will find a new home, and it will be over at OS Drawer! I’ll be working with them over the coming weeks to successfully export any and all code repositories not held anywhere else over to their “drawers” for safekeeping.
Many of you have heard the rumors… well, on the 4 year anniversary of this post, I decided that today was probably as good as any to announce our intentions of building a repository to hold the beunited source code from their CVS server. We’ll also be glad to host other projects, new and old, active and forgotten. We have already acquired the server space/bandwidth to do so… just a matter of me finding time to get SVN set up and running with the repositories imported. beunited’s website will be archived on this same server as well, keeping it around for bookmarking’s sake. Plus, I wanted to use the beunited category logo one last time.
We have a couple of other ideas going on for new community features as well, as we rebuild everything once again. Let us know (in the comments) if you’d like to see something in particular, or email me if you’d like to help (dj at begroovy).
