    read I may add There is a new OpenBeOS newsletter Michael Phipps said it was nice in time for BeGeistert but he probably didn t know that an increasing group of BeGeistert visitors is already arriving on Friday which means that they aren t going to check if there s a new OBOS newsletter among a column and an editorial also featuring a nice status report by Michael about all projects running ZetaNews mentioned that Dutch Zeta presentations can be held something that actually was arranged at this BeGeistert Things just need to be sorted but more about that later As for the Dutch BeOS Usergroup also known as DuBeUs there are indeed attempts to bring it back to life The website which seems to be down at the moment will be updated again by whom we do not yet know for the first time in over 3 years There are obviously still quite some Dutch BeOS users out there and now a release of Zeta is drawing closer and OpenBeOS also progressing on things may start to look very bright for this usergroup again Another thing announced at ZetaNews is that a German company called SoftMaker is looking for yet another operating system to port their software to and they have opened a poll for it Their word processor TextMaker and their spreadsheet application PlanMaker are currently available for Windows Handheld PCs Pocket PCs Linux and FreeBSD so Zeta also wouldn t look bad on that list Not to forget they are also working on an innovative mobile office suite titled Office anywhere working title I like the name So go over and vote for Zeta now With a few more bugs to be fixed a version 0 07 of the NVidia TNT GeForce driver is expected to be

  • IsComputerOn - BeGeistert 011 - The review of NeXTSteps
    after having stayed up all night so I went to bed straight after breakfast This made me miss the user end Zeta presentation since I wasn t awake before noon I did catch the Beam presentation which was pretty interesting I suddenly became much more interested in working with it myself It s fast stable and makes much use of attributes There are a number of things its developer has in mind for the nearby future such as an indication of the number of emails in the folders a simplification of the Preferences added spamfilter linked to SpamAssassin and others and of course a couple of bugfixes For the more distant future IMAP is on the to do list After Beam Frans showed bits of his image editing tool Refraction of which there will be a short review later on The OpenBeOS gathering of Saturday was very technical I wasn t there though but I did attend the WonderBrush presentation Development for this drawing pad application was actually started at BeGeistert 009 Half a year later at BeGeistert 010 Stephan Assmus was already able to show a real bit of progress and I certainly was impressed It took till August for Stephan to fix all known bugs and post the first version of WonderBrush to BeBits Ever since there has definitely been progress The two things Stephan has always been very proud to have in this application are the so called non linear modifier stack multilayer integration and pixel precise drawing Not much seems to have changed about those features but WonderBrush does have a number of extra features among others the fill feature Existing drawings can be filled up in a very original and difficult to describe way with the filling also being moveable away from what it originally was supposed to fill up In order to move it you will have to use the also newly implemented move tool an also very remarkably implemented move tool Stephan expects to post a new version of WonderBrush in a couple of weeks but first wants to get rid of all the known bugs A last thing that has changed since the previous BeGeistert is that Stephan decided to make it a paid release after all although I think 7 50 Euros is an extremely reasonable price Sunday 09 45 OpenBeOS media kit 11 15 BePascal 13 00 Python 15 00 Java games actually I think this one got cancelled After a rather short night and a good breakfast Marcus Overhagen held a presentation about the OpenBeOS media kit he has been working on He mentioned that in fact the basic media kit can be expected to be ready in one month from now Meanwhile he will especially need to work on the codec interface After that there would still be the need for codecs What he did this time was replacing the existing media kit of his BeOS installation with the one he just compiled He showed that the mixer
