Spotted on Haiku-OS.org, Kevin Musick of Teldar Corporation has donated the source code of their “BeServed” network filesystem/filesharing server (and client) to the Haiku project.
To quote from the Haiku-OS.org post (or, more accurately, to quote their quoting of Kevin Musick):
I am pleased to donate BeServed in its entirety to the Haiku project. After Be, Inc.’s demise, BeServed was no longer commercially viable and the pressures of my career and a young family forced me to pursue other opportunities. However, I am encouraged to see Haiku’s progress and the ongoing commitment of the community. While I no longer have the bandwidth to participate in the project, I hope that BeServed will be useful in some small way. Congratulations on your progress and best wishes for continued success!
This is great news, and it’s the second announcement of a formerly-commercial BeOS app going open source’d in the past few months (counting the release of the Jabber for BeOS code back in March).
