[MD1] Informal GUI/Window Design Discussion
For those who might possibly be interested, an _informal, non-official, non-Apple-sanctioned_ discussion about the design of a new graphical user interface and windowing system for the next generation of Macintosh operating system is talking place on the GX dev mailing list and the AIMED-talk mailing list [see sig for subscription info]. Background: Apple Computer's attempts to create a transitional operating system have failed, at least partly due to a lack of a pre-emptive multitasking-enabled graphical user interface and windowing system in their transitional OS design. The design of Apple's original graphics library [QuickDraw] didn't allow for a simple transition to PMT, and the shipment date for their transitional OS slipped beyond commercial viability. To make matters worse, former management didn't have a fully-PMT GUI waiting in the wings, so now Apple is without a transitional OS *or* a full-featured OS. Fortunately, Apple has available the most powerful 2D graphs library...

[MD1] Disabling the CFM-68K Runtime
Apple recommends customers disable the CFM-68K Runtime Enabler extension Apple Computer has discovered a bug in the CFM-68K Runtime Enabler extension that can affect the stability of Macintosh computers based on the 680x0 processor. This extension allows the use of certain applications on 680x0 computers, and is installed by an application installer only if the application requires the extension. Customers will know they have this extension installed if the file " CFM-68K Runtime Enabler" (note that the file name begins with a space) is located in their Extensions folder which resides inside their System folder. In certain circumstances, the bug can cause applications which rely on the CFM-68K Runtime Enabler to not function properly, resulting in application instability and potential loss of data. The most obvious symptoms are what appear to be random system crashes and hangs. Macintosh and Mac OS-compatible computers based on the PowerPC processor are not affected by this bug....
