FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Sean Luke, Paul Guyot, Roger Milne, Avi Drissman, and Steve Weyer proudly
announce the release of the Newton port of JavaJukebox, an MP3 encoder and
decoder for Waba on the Newton MessagePad.

"People kept saying they wanted one, so I figured what the heck," Sean was
reported saying. JavaJukebox is an open-source Java-based MP3
encoder/decoder available elsewhere. Sean did most of the port over the
last month with the help of Paul and Roger. Avi and Steve helped fiinish
up the remaining stub functions.

JavaJukebox can play most common MP3 encodings, including variable-bitrate
encodings. It's also fast enough to run, barely, on even the
lowest-powered NewtOS 2.0 machine. JavaJukebox can also encode existing
Newton recordings into a much more compact MP3 format, which can be
exported to the PC or Mac via Sloup or BinHexer.

Download JavaJukebox at http://www.cs.umd.edu/users/seanl/newton/ and be
mindful of the date today.

So why not actually write this now that you've teased us?
Obviously it wouldn't run on a 2.0 machine (not enough
horsepower to decode mp3 in real time) but a 2x00 is
certainly capable of it.
