BeOS & Derivatives After nearly three years without an official release, OpenTracker 5.3.0 has been released to BeBits. Currently only available for x86 (a PPC build is requested by Axel), OT 5.3 adds a basic calendar display to Deskbar, the ability to quit apps via Switcher, the ability to undo/redo Tracker actions, and many bug fixes, from stability to font sensitivity. Many of the latter issues were found initially on Haiku, where Tracker also runs.

"By _port_ I mean port. It is not the same code base recompiled, as I understand it. "

It IS the same code base recompiled.
There are a couple defines in the code to be able to compile on both Beos and Haiku.

Axel implied it wasn't.

I quote (bebits comments)

"To El_Al: Tracker is using private Be API, it won't run on Haiku unchanged. It has been ported to Haiku, though, and the Haiku version is up-to-date as well (so there is no need to replace it, anyway)."

Therefore he _implied_ the source was different.
