Software News   Software News : A-EON Technology acquires TuneNet
   posted by amigakit on 28-May-2015 22:09:14 (5186 reads)

A-EON Technology acquires TuneNet
Cardiff, 26th May 2015

A-EON Technology Ltd is pleased to announce that it has purchased the rights to TuneNet, the multi-format Music Player and Internet Radio Streamer for AmigaOS 4 from its developer, Paul Heams.

As part of the agreement A-EON has acquired the exclusive rights to the full TuneNet source code, binaries and plugins along with the worldwide exclusive rights to publish and distribute the software and its plugins.

A-EON has also acquired the TuneNet web domain and exclusive rights to all trade names for product marketing, promotion and branding for the AmigaOS and Amiga-related operating systems including emulation.

Meanwhile Paul Heams will retain the non-exclusive rights to the "audio re-sampling class" source code for other projects.

TuneNet is a modular multi-format player which was developed from the ground up by Paul Heams in 2004. It supports a range of music formats through special plugins and includes recording and Shout/Ice-cast broadcasting. It also includes a system GUI along with a customisable miniature dock facility and XML drive skinnable interface. Over the years, TuneNet has received many notable upgrades. It was made freely available on OS4Depot and was also bundled as a third-party contribution with AmigaOS 4.1

In recent years, due to changing work commitments, Paul hasn’t been able to devote time to support and update TuneNet. Rather than let his creation stagnate Paul said, “I’ve realised for quite a while that TuneNet needed a new home. I just did not have the time to give it the attention it deserved and I’m really pleased that A-EON have taken up the challenge to drive it forward”. Matthew Leaman added,“TuneNet is quality AmigaOS software and we look forward to building on Paul’s excellent legacy”.

Great !

If you could add an ARexx function to determine the full path played song (as AmigaAmp), it will be nice !

Even though I am sure intentions are good I dont understand how buying up all "popular" amiga software will help.
Who is going to continue to develop these programs in the future when a-eon alone owns them all??

Tomas, I suspect A-EON are driving at better integrating AmigaOS, purchasing a suite of essential tools that any decent "modern" OS requires out the box.

I think driving integration, supporting development and bringing forward better "standardisation", across all popular tools currently used by the Amiga community, should turn out to be a good thing in the end.

Q!

Did they already buy Hyperion/OS4, or are they just doing it piece by piece? :)

Who's jealous and for what? It's just a quite interesting strategy to move on with these software buys to OS4-only apps and to the ones which are considered as parts of the OS4 itself, and even opening them to other platforms (like was said with Ringhio for example) while they previously were pretty much locked to OS4. I'm not that OS4 fanatic that I'd be any jealous about that, bring it on to other platforms freely :)

And the half serious question about buying the whole OS4... it was rumoured that A-EON could step in to OS4 ownership with all those rearranging news, but I haven't followed if it came into any conclusion yet. But anyway, somehow interesting that they are now buying software which is that tied to the OS...

Least we can now get the station listings fixed, rather than use my patch.

Speaking of that, normally the station lists are fixed from the Shoutcast index, although some users mentioned to me of stations that were not present in the list, I manually added each server to my patch.

Should the listings get fixed, would you still want this capability to add custom stations that would stay on the list forever (regardless of Shoutcast changes)

My typo jealous is written like that. Thank You Very much. (Jealous neighbours about the avatar car etc..)

It's Good if some programming is stalled and somebody want's it to be developed further.

Waiting for the MegaSplash from A-EON. Quiet before the Storm or how do You pronounce it Trevor?

GoGo!

That would be a smart move, this will give A-Eon a postion like Apple's one.

Well, since this was already OS4-exclusive, no harm done here.

And sounds like the original author wasn't able to keep updating it anymore, so this also a way forward for the program in question.
