You may have heard about the new MacTech CD — we released it at WWDC
(press release is below).

The short and simple message about this CD is — EVERY article of every
major Macintosh developer publication available and the original Inside
Macintosh is included on this CD. That’s more than FOUR LINEAR FEET of
printed content.

MacTech’s 1-12 CD includes:

* Entire archives of MacTech Magazine
* Entire archives of develop — Apple’s Technical Journal
* Entire archives of FrameWorks — from the Software Frameworks Association
* Volumes I-VI of Inside Macintosh(r)

and all of it is accessible in one of the most beloved reference tools —
THINK Reference.

On the CD, you get:

* Almost 1600 articles from all 139 issues of MacTech Magazine
(1984-1996) and part of 1997 — in THINK Reference!

* All 29 Issues (1990-1997) of Apple’s develop(tm) — in THINK Reference!

* 21 issues of FrameWorks from the Software Frameworks Association
(formerly MacApp Developers Association) — the most complete set of
FrameWorks archives known. (Note: These articles are in text format
on the preliminary version — they move to THINK Reference format in
the final version.)

* Improved hypertext, improved indices, and a new THINK Reference Viewer
— for lightning quick access! The new viewer has improved searching

* 100+ MB of source code — use them in your applications, with no
royalties! Includes all the source code from MacTech issues as well as
Apple’s develop and FrameWorks.

* Full version of THINK Reference — the original online guide to
Inside Macintosh, Vols. I-VI

* Sprocket(tm)! MacTech’s tiny framework that compiles quickly and
supports System 7.5 features

* The best threads from the Mac programmer newsgroups plus thousands
of notes, tips, snippets, and gotchas

* Popular tools that Mac programmers use to increase their productivity.
Demos from developer tool vendors. And much more!
