CenterStage: Mac Media Center going Alpha

Mac miniBarb posted about the development of the Mac Media Center project a while back, but today CenterStage is poised to release a public alpha version of the software.  Two days ago, they noted: ”We have decided to delay the public Alpha by up to 2 days to integrate some very nice stuff that has been checked into the source repository over the last few days. . . . God willing the public Alpha will be out by Wednesday evening at the latest, I hope everyone agrees with our decision as we wanted to make the public Alpha worth the download.”

So, check back with their site later today to see if the Alpha is live.  Don’t get too excited though, as their site notes ”...this simple version plays movies from ~/movies” and ”is only available via SVN to compile yourself.” If you don’t know what that means, then you need to check back when they’re closer to a beta release.  Keep in mind that “Alpha” is the step before “Beta,” so the program will probably have its fair share of bugs.

UPDATE: tjreo writes in to add: ”To clarify… when the Public Alpha version is released, you will not need to compile it yourself.  That comment was for those like myself that wanted to download the code from the subversion repository in order to see the application right away.” Thanks for the update!
