In the new OpenBeOS newsletter Michael Phipps is giving a good status report, explaining the status of each kit. However, what we don’t learn yet is how far we are from an alpha public release. In the meantime, the Beunited Java team announced that they now have a complete coomand line version (1.4.2.) running, while 3Sat TV channel will present Yellowtab Zeta on TV today. Additionally, the people at BeOS Max said that the last version of their distribution will be 3.1, because they don’t want to be an obstacle on Zeta’s commercial success.
