Zeta Magnussoft has published an update concerning Zeta. They announced SAMBA has reached beta status, while also announcing a (much needed) multi-protocol instant messaging application, which supports GoogleTalk, Jabber, AIM, ICQ, Yahoo, and MSN.

something missing?

I had the opportunity to see Zeta (installed on HD, not the DemoCD) on a friends pc...

It seems that support for accelerated graphics is missing.. for example I opened a lot of folders and files (text) and all I got it was a taste like I was using a very heavy OS...
maybe they need to do some code optimization...

You are very possibly seeing the performance degradation due to the use of SVG tracker (note the previous discussions about SVG vs. HVIF for icons) - OR, you are possibly experiencing one of the problems I saw with the Radeon driver (assuming your friend's machine is using a Radeon card) - it doesn't seem behave well on Zeta for some reason.

Displaying a lot of files in a directory was never really quick in BeOS

What was wrong with the previous versions of UAE, I mean do they have so much time, money and resources so they spend time porting a new one or even update an old one?

Shouldn't they spend time improving the OS instead, like writing drivers, and maybe spend some time on GUI itself.

I haven't tried Zeta in a few years, maybe there isn't much to improve anymore, even if I hardly doubt it.
