[MD1] BeOS Masters Awards Program
Fame,Recognition,Megahertz... THE BEOS MASTERS AWARDS PROGRAM ------------------------------- Innovation in the BeOS comes as much from developers building with the BeOS as through Be's own efforts. It is Be developers that will create the products that transform the BeOS from raw potential into a truly useful and revolutionary system. How to we recognize the developer who takes a risk? Who steps out of current paradigms to take entirely different approach to a problem. Who takes on the task of leveraging the underlying hardware and OS to deliver new capabilities to the end user. How do we acknowledge the commitment of a team which ignores the invocations of "it can't be done" or "it shouldn't be done" to change the way people use their computers? How do we recognize the lone programmer who works late into the night after their "real" job or school work to complete a product that solves real problems? How can we place the spotlight on the real heroes of the revolution, the...

[MD1] BeOS Porting Lab and Bugs online
Get a Preview of the Preview.... BeOS PREVIEW RELEASE PORTING LAB -------------------------------- Be Developer services is working on setting up a Preview Release porting lab to help port applications to the Preview Release as quickly as possible. Applications written for DR8 will not be binary-compatible with the DR9 release, thus developers will need to recompile their code and make some modifications in order to take advantage of new functionality. The Preview Release is the first release in which forward compatibility will be a priority (and thus the last release to break everything.) If you want to participate in a porting lab, then please send a message to devservices@be.com. The lab will be held in March and early April, and as the date approaches, we'll get more specific. But since we expect this space to be limited and in high demand, you'll want to reserve space now. This lab is intended for developers who intend to ship a product that is for purchase with the Preview...

Chairman and CEO Gilbert F. Amelio today detailed a restructuring plan that sharpens the Company's focus on strengths that have been at the heart of its success -- exceptionally easy-to-use personal and mobile computers with unique multimedia and Internet capabilities.

[MD1] Raven 1.0 on Info-Mac
From: jesjones@halcyon.com (Jesse Jones) Subject: [ANN] Raven 1.0 A new C++ framework I've recently uploaded Raven 1.0 to Info-Mac. Raven is a new C++ framework for Macintosh programming. Raven is similar to PowerPlant and MacApp but takes full advantage of newer C++ features, has a more modular structure, and makes extensive use of programming by contract. Like ODF and MacApp Raven makes extensive use of multiple inheritance by means of mixin classes. Raven also uses the standard C++ classes wherever possible, including the string class, the standard exception classes, and STL. Raven also makes use of template classes and RTTI. Raven is divided into four layers: Foundation, Core, Application, and Esoteria. Each layer is composed of a number of packages. For example the Core layer has a Files package containing classes to manage things like reading/writing a file, iterating over files, accessing the Desktop Manager, and CustomGetFile and CustomPutFile. The Foundation layer contains...

[MD1] Tempo will be MacOS 8
MARCH 5, 1997 VOLUME 11 ISSUE 10 Tempo's official name: Mac OS 8 By MacWEEK Staff Apple announced today that the OS code-named Tempo will be officially known as Mac OS 8, a name that was reserved for the company's failed next-generation OS project, code-named Copland. "It would be confusing to not call it 8," said Jim Gable, vice president of AppleSoft product marketing. "We feel very strongly it is a major upgrade." Gable said that the user-interface changes in the Tempo release merit more than the Mac 0S 7.7 designation originally planned for it. Apple's current naming scheme calls for changing the first digit of the version number when major architectural or user-experience changes are made (see http://www.macweek.com/mw_1035/news_system754.html). He said Apple's market research indicated that users did not strongly associate the Mac OS 8 name with Copland and felt the name was appropriate for the Tempo release. "This wouldn't even be a big issue if the Copland project wasn't...

[MD1] ScriptAgent
Leverage the power of your AppleScript and 4th Dimension applications with ScriptAgent. ScriptAgent actually embeds AppleScript into the 4D procedural language, which enables 4D to communicate bi-directionally with virtually any AppleScriptable application. You can even combine conditional program branching code and data from both 4D and AppleScript in the same procedure! For instance, a user can enter a customer code into a 4D layout, press Tab, and instantly return the matching customer record into the layout from an outside source (like MacP&L, an AppleScriptable accounting application). That's something you could never do with AppleScript alone. Or build a complete publishing workflow solution using QuarkXpress, 4D, and your favorite scriptable graphics cataloging application. ScriptAgent works great with the new 4D Version 6, and will provide the developer with massive background processing power using the new EXECUTE ON SERVER command. Just imagine what you could do with...

[MD1] Apple's response to Fortune Mag
From Jordan Dea-Mattson, Apple Evangelism jordan@apple.com Dear Friends - You have probably read the latest 'hit piece' that appeared in Fortune Magazine's latest issue. This is Apple's response. Not much that I can add. It really sums things up. Yours, Jordan ====== Date: 02/20 Letter to the Editor, Fortune Magazine Dear John, We must confess to being more than a bit confused by your highly melodramatic story about Apple ("Something's Rotten in Cupertino"). Much of your March 3, 1997 article is based on speculation from an individual who even you characterize as a frequently unreliable source, and then your supporting evidence is almost entirely unattributed quotations. We expect better from Fortune. So, allow us to provide an attributed quotation about the story's thesis and suppositions from one of its key figures, Steve Jobs, "The Fortune article is pure fantasy. I am very happy as CEO of Pixar and I am not, repeat not, looking for another job." Best regards, David F...

From: richardb@cocytus.demon.co.uk (Richard Buckle) I've posted some AppleScripts for CodeWarrior.
