Zeta A lot of things have happened in the past few days concerning Zeta, BeOS, and Haiku.

Update: Magnusoft ceases distribution of Zeta. Update II: Access answered the questions posed in the article.

Something Worth Mentioning...

People may be forgetting that, in February of last year, we made a significant release of code derived from work on BeOS/BeIA under open source license in the form of "OpenBinder", released under the MPL v1.1 (for user space portions) and GPL v2 (for the "Binder Driver"). This is, of course, Linux stuff, but the if Haiku folks (or, really, anybody)would find it useful, have at it.

(This does not apply to the specific exception of Mr. Korz, who falls under various "penalty" clauses in the licenses we utilize, and is thus barred from use of any ACCESS-copyrighted code pending resolution of this situation. And, just for the sake of complete and crystalline clarity, let me point out that code which contains a Be, Inc. copyright statement is ACCESS-copyrighted code. There's no loophole there.)

OpenBinder.org has been taken down--temporarily--while I get it better integrated into the "Hiker Project" site ( http://www.hikerproject.org ). Hiker represents our second major open source release, it was put online in Feburary of this year, and constitutes an "application framework", a set of service components which fill some gaps in Linux-based OS's enabling easier development of seamless applications suited for mobile devices...
