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.

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.

The sad state of getting the source code for GoBe Productive on Haiku:

That was the last "official" information I heard. :'( But I still dream of GoBe Productive being released for Haiku.

GoBe basically recreated enough of the BeOS kits to get GoBe Productive to compile and run on Windows. Pretty crazy stuff really.

The Be Engineer, Pavel Cisler IIRC, that created Eddie did the same kind of thing for Linux using GTK+ V1. I used to have the source kicking around at one point.

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.

It still had the base libs from the BeOS runtime implemented on the target platform. I remember looking at their export tables under Windows and wondering if they would work with my own code (never got round to trying though.)
