I’ve been waiting for this for so long.”, but sure, thank you developers Atheist here, by the way 2006-12-04 11:49 pm JPisini Good news. 2006-12-05 2:09 am judgen Didnt we allready have samba (fyysik’s build), msn gtalk yahoo aim and all the others (in im_kit), vbr (through lame) and vorbis support in R5? I do like the UAE port though. 2006-12-05 7:24 am Tuishimi “Atheist here, by the way ” Too much information. 2006-12-05 8:09 am csynt I had the opportunity to see Zeta (installed on HD, not the DemoCD) on a friends pc… It seems that support for accelerated graphics is missing.. for example I opened a lot of folders and files (text) and all I got it was a taste like I was using a very heavy OS… maybe they need to do some code optimization… 2006-12-05 2:46 pm umccullough It seems that support for accelerated graphics is missing.. You are very possibly seeing the performance degradation due to the use of SVG tracker (note the previous discussions about SVG vs. HVIF for icons) – OR, you are possibly experiencing one of the problems I saw with the Radeon driver (assuming your friend’s machine is using a Radeon card) – it doesn’t seem behave well on Zeta for some reason. 2006-12-05 3:50 pm gfx1 Displaying a lot of files in a directory was never really quick in BeOS 2006-12-05 10:19 am konrad What was wrong with the previous versions of UAE, I mean do they have so much time, money and resources so they spend time porting a new one or even update an old one? Shouldn’t they spend time improving the OS instead, like writing drivers, and maybe spend some time on GUI itself. I haven’t tried Zeta in a few years, maybe there isn’t much to improve anymore, even if I hardly doubt it.
