New Version Of The MacTech CD-ROM

MacTech Magazine has announced a new release of their MacTech CD-ROM. This new CD includes the entire history of MacTech Magazine, over 2000 articles from almost 180 issues of MacTech, running from 1984 through May of 2000. According to MacTech:

Debuting at Macworld Expo in San Francisco, the new release of the MacTech CD-ROM provides the most complete reference collection available for Macintosh programmers and developers.

The newly updated CD includes articles on Carbon, Mac OS X, QuickTime development, and so much more! This wealth of programming tutorials, introductions to new technologies, and how-to articles are compiled into databases for the THINK Reference system.

The THINK Reference Viewer (included on the CD-ROM) is explicitly supported by all major Macintosh development environments -- including CodeWarrior, Object Master, BBEdit, and Symantec C++. Simply select text in these environments and use a command key combination to bring THINK Reference forward and search for that API or keyword.

The THINK Reference Viewer also supports complex boolean searches and has an advanced high speed search engine that allows you to quickly, and precisely find the information you need.

Also included on the CD-ROM is the THINK Reference Compiler with support for AppleEvents and larger make files. Simply drop a TR make file on the compiler to compile large directories of HTML documents into a single, compact THINK Reference database that can be easily search and stored in a fraction of the space of the HTML source.

Included are the complete run of Appleis develop magazine, the FrameWorks journal, and Appleis original inside Macintosh technical reference -- all in THINK Reference format.

Source code for these articles fills the disk, making the MacTech CD one of the most extensive collections of Macintosh example code available. Also featured, are special offers and demos on some of the best Macintosh developer products.

The CD-ROM is available for US$99 until January 31st, and $129 thereafter. It can be purchased at Macworld Expo, or through Developer Depot. The upgrade is free to those who bought an earlier version before December 1, 2000. You can find more information about it at MacTechis Web site.
