The demo CD had a better success than we imagined, 2 mirrors went down due to the huge bandwidth used.
The stats shows more than 5000
An other good surprise of these last 4 weeks is the important
and very positive feedback from the BeOS community.
Two new coders joined us and received a full CVS access.
The first one released some days later BeFree
, a BeOS clone based on the FreeBSD kernel under GPL&LGPL license. I don't know if BeFree will try to reuse our code or not,but its Kernel Kit has
some similarities. If the goal is to opensource our code, it's useless and irrelevant, we already mentioned that B.E.OS will be opensource (you will be allowed to see the source code, modify it, patch it, distribute the changes), but if the
goal is to 'be inspired' by what we code and recreate something 'new', we will happy to see that it could help a bit.
Our second new membler, Bogdan, is now working with Victor on the Network kit, which will reached soon the
'fully completed' state.

The final demo CD is out, its final size is 106MB. We now have a decent number of mirrors, try it out.

Ladies and gentlemen: here is our first demo boot CD. It's based in Knoppix distro. Inside, you have our kernel_server + libroot.so, app_server + libbe.so and storage kit ! The iso file is ready, we just need some days to find a host for such big file (120MB). The B.E.OS files themselves are very small, the CD space is filled by all the drivers (Audio, video, usb, etc...). In parallel, we will release the B.E.OS components separately very soon.

New year with a new design. Here I am working hard in order to do a website that resembles the old Be, Inc. site. But as I like Gonx too much, I mixed "Be website style" and " "Gonx style". And here it is. Very cool, you agree? Please post your comments, ideas, bugs and errors reports to

Finally I finished BMessage, and I'm making hard tests on it to improve its stability. Perhaps the RemoveData and RemoveName might contain some implementation errors that can be easily fixed, but I'm not sure if it's bugged. I'm writting tons of test codes for it...

I committed my changes in our new app_server. It includes the native window managing. It opens a new windows, which will later be fullscreen and draw all the windows in it. It still has some issues, due to a lack of clipping (that's why it's slow). I hope that Tobe could help to solve it as he did on the past. I also added keyboard and mouse management, then you can play BePuyo in our native window managing now.
