Zeta Magnussoft, the company now responsible for development on Zeta, has announced it is accepting pre-orders for Zeta 1.21. This new release will include multi-user support, will be built with GCC4, among other improvements. Bernd Korz's weblog contains more information. Korz was (is?) the CEO of YellowTAB, the company that started Zeta. Read on for a short editorial on this announcement.

According to Mr. Korz's blog, there is now a 15 people ZETA team that works fulltime on the product.

But only six(!) developers. I hate to be negative, but that is not going to do this. Some operating system projects have hundreds of developers, and need to work very hard to keep up with hardware support and build new features. Six developers is not going to cut it, sixteen neither.

If there is some future in BeOS, it is probably Haiku.
