Fri, 11 Oct 2002 08:35:40 -0500
A bit of good new from the MCL folks. The best part was buried at the bottom of their message so I've moved it here:
>We are also making good progress on the Mac OS X native version of MCL and
>will be reporting on that shortly.
>From: "Stephen L. Hain" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
>Subject: Announcing MCL 4.3.5
>Digitool is pleased to announce MCL 4.3.5, a CarbonLib based version that is intended to allow users to begin migrating their code to Carbon and ultimately native Mac OS X compatibility. Though MCL 4.3.5 is not the Mac OS X native version (it will run in Mac OS Classic compatibility mode), it includes many of the improvements that we've added in the course of working on the native Mac OS X port, including:
>* New Carbon-compatible interfaces
>* New ".cfsl" file extension for Carbon-compatible compiled files
>* Dozens of bug fixes to core code, user interfaces, OpenTransport, the
> compiler, and example files
>* Many enhancements to Fred, user interfaces, streams, Quickdraw interface,
> ANSI compatibility, etc.
>MCL 4.3.5 will be available for electronic download to
> 1) MCL subscription owners with 1 or more remaining releases, and to
> 2) purchasers of MCL 4.3.1
>You will be contacted directly by Jennifer Jones with instructions on how to download your copy of MCL 4.3.5. If you fall under one of the two groups above and you do not hear from Jennifer by October 15th, please write to email@example.com with your current contact information.
