BeOS & Derivatives Two news items about alternative operating system news in a row? What is this, Christmas? In any case, the Haiku project, the darling of OSNews (hey it's okay now), has released its second alpha release. This new stable development release contains some serious improvements over the first alpha.

What about an MP3 player and or organizer?


Would you happen to know an mp3 ENCODER that works on Haiku? The player seems to work quite well, but haven't found an encoder that works.

LAME is available through Haiku Ports. I have installed some software through Haiku Ports, but I haven't tried LAME.

And I believe LAME will compile in Haiku/BeOS without any special effort (beyond running ./configure && make && make install).

There's also Flipside A.E., which provides a nice front-end for LAME.
