Software News   Software News : A-EON Technology acquires TuneNet

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 news again, but my only worry is have A-EON got enough developers / cash for all these apps.

I could make lots small improvement suggestions that would greatly improve TuneNet for me, such as:

* Show the current track's full path, so I can find the actual file. Ideally on the main UI, but otherwise in the Info Window.

* Optionally show the full path in the playlist, so it can be sorted (and searched) by path.

* Remember the last-played track, and select that when starting TuneNet. (I've got huge playlists, so finding what I was playing last time is almost impossible.) Ideally this would work without needing TuneNet to quit (say due to rebooting after an AmigaOS or TuneNet crash).

* Show the track position bar on the main UI, rather than hidden at the bottom of the Tune tab.

* Enabling Shuffle should NOT immediately move to the next track. This behaviour is very non-standard, and causes unwanted behaviour. Fixing it would be a minor inconvenience to any who likes this behaviour, as they merely need to click Next Track after enabling Shuffle.

* "Open Playlist" should default to starting in PROGDIR:Playlists folder, rather than just PROGDIR:. And preferably it should remember the last folder you were in (at least until you close TuneNet).

* Add an extra AmigaDOS parameter to TuneNet, which prevents it from starting if it's not already running. This is useful if you want to control TuneNet using FKey, but don't want accidental key presses to launch it (I created an AmigaDOS+ARexx script to do this...).

Someone suggested an ARexx interface for TuneNet. That would certainly be very useful, but it'd be a relatively big undertaking, and it's not strictly necessary - TuneNet already takes AmigaDOS parameters to control it (but see above).

Also, TuneNet sometimes crashes when you open the Info Window of particular MP3s, presumably due to unexpected/corrupted image information. So it needs more sanity checks on MP3s.

That's great news for me too!! Even I was not using this program everyday,from time to time,I used to connect to techno-pop radio stations that of course I don't like it,hated at this time of 8-9 years ago,but I listened to A METAL CHURCH song and it was a great feeling I even recorded a part I think it was from the album hanging in the balance.

So great feeling using Tunenet and customizing it YEAH great program!!!
