[MD1] Apple on state of Newton
Dear Newton Developers and Customers, Regrettably, there has been a great deal of misinformation in the newspapers of late regarding our Newton program. An uninformed outsider's view of the situation coupled with relentless doom-n-gloom reports in the popular media could lead one to believe Apple was in the process of "shutting-down" the Newton division. This is not the case. I want to take this opportunity to provide you with an update on our continued commitment to our products and to you, our developers and customers. We are committed to complete marketing and sales efforts to launch our two exciting products this quarter. Both of these products are in manufacturing ramp and are on target to ship later this quarter. And we continue to develop future products.

[MD1] Amelio's Shareholder Mtg Speech
Dear Developers - Here is the text of Gil Amelio's Apple Shareholders' Meeting address. If you are interested in the direction and goals that Apple is setting, I recommend that you read it. Here are a couple of things that we'll call out to you: 1. There are new and impressive people in charge of marketing. 2. Rumor has it that the new PowerBook -- code named Hooper -- is really going to kick some butt. 3. Last quarter, the Mac OS (as opposed to Apple's hardware business alone) actually GREW 9% -- not shrank as the generic press would lead you to believe. Motorola, who sold 40,000 Mac OS units at Comdex, believes that these sales are new units, not something they are taking from Apple. I apologize for the length of this message -- but I thought it worthy. Neil Ticktin MacTech Magazine publisher@mactech.com http://www.mactech.com ========= Good morning. Members of the Board, Apple Executives, Fellow Shareholders, Fellow Employees. Welcome and thank you for coming. Our annual...

Chipmunk Basic can be downloaded from Mr. Nicholson's Chipmunk Basic Home Page, http://www.rahul.net/rhn/cbas.page.html The reference manual is also available there, but in a simplified form without enhanced navigation.

[MD1] WindowMenu
From: Joseph Strout (jstrout@ucsd.edu) I've added another little code module to my public collection... this one creates a "Windows" menu (you know, lists the open windows; pick one from the menu to bring it to the front). It's in C, and only requires a few calls to get the functionality (works fine from C++ too). Should work on any system or with any framework (or lack thereof). See: http://www-acs.ucsd.edu/~jstrout/macdev/ and click on "WindowMenu". Share and Enjoy, -- Joe P.S. The SimpleVector class has been much improved, thanks to some great feedback from Jesse Jones (jesjones@halcyon.com). Available at same URL.

[MD1] Updating ANSI C/C++ from CW/10 to CW/11
From: Ron Liechty (mwron@metrowerks.com) CodeWarriors, With CW/11 Metrowerks has changed the default ANSI C and C++ Libraries from a version licensed from Plum-Hall to Metrowerks owned libraries. These Libraries all source codes as well as projects you can modify to build custom libraries are located in the Metrowerks Standard Library folder, and are referred to as MSL C and MSL C++. We are still providing (and will continue to provide for some time) the older versions of the ANSI C and C++ libraries. These are located on the CodeWarrior Tools CD in the Metrowerks CodeWarrior : ( Obsolete ANSI Libraries) folder. Providing our own libraries allows us to ship the source code so users that want to build their own custom libraries or fine tune the provided code may do so. Furthermore, the Proposed ANSI/ISO Standard for C++ is now in the final stages and this new MSL C++ Library is more compliant than the previous Plum Hall version.
