To All Coders, Congratulations on your work so far. I am writing this eMail using the OpenBeos StyleEdit. I downloaded the build farm's binaries last night and have been playing with them and I am impressed. I installed the PDFWriter Printer and the used the OBOS Printers Preference Panel to add a printer. I have successfully printed a few text documents; although it died on when printing the Personal Edition Start Page. I will be using a second install to test OBOS. I would like to know which OBOS components are ready for user testing. Specifically as replacements of the Be Supplied ones. I would also like to know which ones are from external sources and essentially unchanged. As well I would like to request that all components provide a version marker (and an B_ABOUT_REQUESTED handler if possible) so I can be sure what I am testing. For example an attribute OSBOS:MARKER of the form "[OpenBeos - Author] Name - Qualifier (VersionNumber - BuildDate)" Some applications are "better". * Media Preflet successfully accepts None Out for my system. * ShowImage is more capable and I like the slide show feature. But is it bloat ? I encountered a few problems so far. * FileType Preflet closes without doing anything. * DriveSetup Preflet starts with a window too small and with the title bar off screen (800x600). * Network Preflet opens its window and the dies of a segment violation. Probabley cause of the BeOS networking I'm running. * StyleEdit complains of an "Unknown Error" when saving to a drive that does not support attributes, but saves the text. http://personals.yahoo.com.au - Yahoo!
