TuneTracker Systems has successfully run the TuneTracker radio automation program under Haiku. According to developer Dane Scott, it took only modest work to get the "Command Center" automating component functioning under Haiku using an older version of SoundPlay, the player that forms the "audio engine" portion of TuneTracker. Most of Command Center's functionality is already perfect, and when the newest version of SoundPlay is made compatible with Haiku, Command Center will be able to run 100% on the Haiku platform.
Other components in the TuneTracker System, such as the TunePrepper music ripper and prepper, Lightning request finder and playlist builder, and TT Anywhere remote administration server, all launch and run as well, and appear to only require minor
work before they will do everything correctly.
"Our plan is to have the entire TuneTracker software suite running great on this platform before Haiku R1 is released," says Scott, "and the fact that Haiku's developers have done such a good job with BeOS binary compatibility is really speeding up that process."
