Some very cool stuff in the wonderful world of software(tm):
- Flash 9 beta for Linux (finally!)
OMG OMG OMG – so much better. faster. no (or way fewer) sound issues. GTK standalone player available, as well. Now I don’t have to cringe when I receive a link to “that really cool flash site.”
- Gaim 2.0 beta 4 multi-protocol IM client (cross-platform)
Vast improvements. File transfers on MSN still teh suck, tho. And, of course, it doesn’t support the anything complicated. Now I will use aMSN for complicated features, and Gaim for minimal chattiness. Like when I’m supposed to be doing homework. …. Like now. 🙁
- Songbird 0.2 webby music player/manager (cross-platform)
If you’re still of the 1) Find music file in filesystem 2) double click to play in audio player mindset, please come to the current generation. You need a library manager. You do. This is based on Firefox XUL and it’s pretty slick. It’s even quite snappy! It browses the web, collects media files from web pages…. oh just click the link and watch a video about it.
