Brian Whitman has just posted to his blog, or rather he did yesterday. In the post he includes a permalink to a post on Pushpin, music software for the Gameboy, and in that post it mentions the elusive Capers.
If you’re wondering what on earth I am on about, don’t worry. I’ve been asking Brian Whitman about releasing Capers for a long time now.
Capers was a replacement operating system for the Palm PDA. Some beta applications were released, but never the entire OS.
When Brian released Pushpin I thought that there was a real chance he might finish Capers because of this comment:
On the tray table was my trusty Palm VII, the same one that supported earlier developments as Egg Timer, Hedgehog (and baby Hedgehog), Tractor Pull and the nascent Capers API (more on these later)
Sadly, nothing has happened at all.
I guess the idea of a whole music related OS has appealed to me a lot, but I doubt somehow it will ever see the light of day.
