Zeta "Quite a few new things are now in an alpha/beta stage for the next update of ZETA; one of them is the implementation of the latest stable version of SAMBA, v3.0.23. As you can see from the screenshot, ZETA is now 'dancing' beautifully with Linux servers." Also, Axl has posted a status update concerning networking in Haiku: "Work on the networking stack is making slow but steady progress. UDP and IPv4 protocols are mostly done, TCP can send out data, but receiving is not yet implemented."

both entities keep on developing BeOS as a media OS,hre[s what I did today with trusty old R5: I had a guy from ebay wanting to hear what a guitar I dad for sale sounded like,so I pluged 'er in fired up SoundRecorder trimmed the ends a little to get rid of the tune-up part ,saved it as an mp3 and drug it into BeMail and wham instant sample!sunded good too even with my cheap soundblaster mic,I've never seen Windows or linux apps that make it this easy,don't get me wrong any BeoS news is good news but improvements to the media kit is BIG news and an updated 3DmiX with mulitrack recorder would be REALLY BIG news to me at least!

I like how you used the word 'wham' to make it sound like something magical happened.
When you just recorded sound and then attached it to an email, which can be done fairly easily on pretty much any desktop OS.

Maybe it's not magical or difficult, but it is a lot easier than other OS's. Windows has Sound Recorder, but you will have to record it as a wave, then download/use some other program to convert it to mp3. MacOS does not have a built in sound recorder. You would have to get Audicity or something. Linux, well almost nothing is easy. Please explain if I am incorrect.

...the difference being that it only takes about 4-5 steps in BeOS, and almost the entirety of the process can be done via drag-and-drop.

I'd need some sample slicing SW for breakz and 3Dmix update would be cool as well.

Sequitur development has gone to windows I hope someone will pick up the latest BeOS version, sources are available.
