Xentronix Changes Focus to MacOSX

by @ Monday, June 4th, 2007. Filed under Art / Image

As reported over at Haiku News, Xentronix is ceasing development on BeOS/Zeta/Haiku platforms and focusing entirely on the MacOSX platform. It’s very sad to see them go, but it looks as if Frans, et al, took a hit, both financially and in faith, during the recent Zeta troubles. Can’t say that I can blame them. […]

We Need a Graphics Artist

by @ Friday, April 20th, 2007. Filed under Art / Image, Site News

BeGroovy is preparing for a website redesign, among other efforts, and we have an urgent need for someone that does graphics arts better than Yez or I can (which isn’t asking for much), since Cougar is a bit too occupied recently to do anything for us.  The work will be mainly logos, the category icons […]

Longtime BeOS user/developer Stephan Assmus wrote in with this bit of news: The YellowBites website has gotten a complete makeover. The long missing pages for WonderBrush have been added, including a few brief turorials. All the graphics on the site have been created in WonderBrush. Some of the information of the old site had really […]

Want some Haiku?

by @ Wednesday, June 23rd, 2004. Filed under Art / Image

So, it’s not altogether coherent, but fitting and fun. The Genuine Haiku Generator. Enjoy. Edit: Decided to add one of my own in tribute to the new logo… three leaves – green, orange, gold float gracefully, poetic simply said: Haiku

BeOS Icons for OS X and OpenBeOS

by @ Monday, August 19th, 2002. Filed under Art / Image

Last week I heard from a BeOS fan, Matthew McClintock. He has created some BeOS Icons for OS X. This is great for everyone using OS X who misses Be, but doesn’t help Be itself. However, after I pointed out that OpenBeOS needs icons, Matt was surprised and agreed whole heartedly to helping out. He […]

Xentronix needs Refraction Testers

by @ Friday, July 12th, 2002. Filed under Art / Image

Xentronix is in need of more testers for Refraction. Their last beta worked for half the people, and broke for the other half. They need to figure out why. You can see a lot of news about development at their news page. Looks like this thing isn’t far off now. 🙂

Blender lives?

by @ Monday, July 1st, 2002. Filed under Art / Image

Raise your hand if you remember Blender. You know, the 3d app that was ported to BeOS and later died when their company ran out of funding? In any case.. it looks like it may not be dead after all. There is an effort happening at to get all parts of the blender code […]

Inferno renamed – Now Refraction

by @ Sunday, June 23rd, 2002. Filed under Art / Image

Rob Lund wrote in to point out that Xentronix has announced that Inferno, the BeOS-Native image editor, is being renamed to “Refraction”, due to whining from people who make products that have nothing to do with image editing that they also call Inferno. (that last bit about whining is my addition, not Xentronix’s. It’s late. […]

In the release, Frans states: We have decided not only to finish this version, but keep […]

Lost Marble calling it quits on BeOS

by @ Friday, June 1st, 2001. Filed under Art / Image

Well, it’s official. Lost Marble has dropped support for BeOS, after reluctant updates in the past. The 0confirmation came in a reply to BeNews inquiries about a 2.6 release for BeOS. They sounded upset about dropping BeOS, but realistic about their business, and it is hard to fault that sort of thinking. Like they said, […]

Moho updated on BeOS

by @ Wednesday, January 17th, 2001. Filed under Art / Image

In a very interesting move, Lost Marble has posted what is labeled Moho 2.2 to BeBits. Version 2.2 is the current version of their animation software Moho for all platforms. We recently ran an email from Moho showing questionable support of the BeOS version. While the changes from 2.0 to 2.2 are mainly windows specific […]

But it is available to already-registered users. If you have recieved your username and password (you should have by now) head to their support page and […]
