BeOS & Derivatives This is one of those news items that's fun to write, fun to read, fun to comment on, and where no one will be able to say anything unkind. It's all just one big ball of awesome fluffiness. TuneTracker, the BeOS radio automation software, has just released something very special: TuneTracker System 5, the first version designed entirely and specifically for Haiku. In fact, it actually includes Haiku in the software package. Better yet, TuneTracker also unveiled several system-in-a-box products - which have Haiku and TuneTracker pre-installed.

All we need now is GoBe Productive to come back. Maybe that long rumoured v3 BeOS port that was never released.

The "port" was to other OS, GoBe was a native BeOS app. ;-) If you look at the Windows version (if you can find a copy still) there's a libbe.dll etc.

I think the demo version of GoBe Productive for Windows is still available either directly or via the Way Back Machine.

Hopefully, the current owner of the code sees this and start thinking of refreshing it for Haiku. Since it was ported to Windows via a libbe.dll, it should not be overly difficult to refresh it for Haiku.

I'm not sure I'd call it a "port" per-se - it was more like a fork, and from what I gathered, the newer GP3 code has lost a lot of it's BeOS (thus Haiku) compatibility as a result.

A few haiku developers were actually in talks of porting Gobe 3 to Haiku under NDA, because the owners would never opensource it. Couple years later it's obvious that initiative went nowhere.
