Emulation
This app works with: Basilisk II, Mini vMac

This page is devoted to the 1992 Dev discs. Most other Dev CD images from years 1991 through 2000 are available from max1zzz's server. Use mg in both fields of the server dialog box.

Early Apple Developer CDs had interesting names printed on their surface and CD jacket covers. Full lists were sourced from here and here. Apple dropped the cute names with April 1994 version.

Manual link above has CD content listing for the full year, 1992.

See also: Inside Macintosh, Apple Developer CD Series, Volumes I & II (1989), Apple Developer CD Series Volume III: A Disc Called Wanda, QuickTime 2.0 Software Development Kit CD-ROM, Inside Macintosh CD-ROM, Making It Macintosh, Designing Cards and Drivers for the Macintosh Family, Apple Guide to the Macintosh Family Hardware

Compatibility
Architecture: 68k

(¹) Apple released the December CD with minor alterations made to November's CD labelled "Dev.CD Nov/Dec 92". If the disc's printed surface and jacket cover was also labelled "Wayne's GWorld" is uncertain by me - the disc's label when mounted, remained unchanged.

Apple Dev CD producers had a habit of re-using the same CD content over, with some changes to content, such as System Software updates. See screenshot 3 above and compare the Created and Modification Date changes. One CD's content was re-used six times that year (with updates to each) and the Nov/Dec 92 CD twice. Expect duplication of some content throughout.

from what i can discern, cds were not called "SDK" or "SDK Edition" untill some time in early 1996.
so thats the reason why you cant find any cds labelled "SDK" in 1992

by mrdav - 2016, February 23 - 2:11am

max1zzz also has many 1992 discs but I have not indicated a link because we will be putting 1992 discs here.

Thanks mrdav, plus awesome that you have the 1991 CD too. p.s. I also have some of the 1992 images that can be added to this page.

by mrdav - 2016, February 22 - 11:51pm

OK, I will consolidate and make this 1992 alone. I will also start another page for 1991 as I have Dev CD IV to upload.

EDIT: I see that max1zzz has the Dev CD IV along with lots of other early ones, so I won't make a 1991 page but will reference max1zzz instead in the list.

  It might be a good ides to consolidate to the present page?

Yes, I think so. Max has almost the entire collection, years 1992 - 1999 and likely into the 2000's.

I think this page could become "Apple Developer CD Collection (1992)" alone. I also I think we've held our breath on "TheComputerKid" ever fulfilling his original promise, for long enough (its now later than late).

by mrdav - 2016, February 22 - 11:27pm

I have just added a link to the file on the Apple Developer CD Sep1992 page. It might be a good idea to consolidate to the present page?

   now another (incorrect) pic appears second place

I restored the original pix, mrdav. Have to say, its a blurry not too pretty a pic tho'. Also rather large (1.3MB) which makes for slow opening, 1st time around. [Edit] glad to see that it has gone again (not required for page anymore) Smile

by mrdav - 2016, January 31 - 6:13am

The person who made the page has a screenshot of multiple discs (none ever uploaded) and gave the file a generic name. I put up another pic and reordered, and now another (incorrect) pic appears second place. I don't know how to fix this.

Better use a new page for OS X stuff

OK

Edit: Replaced 'Edit' link with App link - IIGS User Wink
P.S: Thanks for creating the new page.

Is this page a good place to upload my 2 Mac OS X Developer Tools discs?

Better use a new page for OS X stuff, this one seems to hold Classic stuff (68k + PPC).
Early OS X are PPC only (from its point of view).
I think it would a good idea to split the Classic and OS X stuff into different pages.

@mrdev; It is text, a tab-delimited directory catalog of the CD content. See "Note" up in the Description area.

The originator of this page has been very quiet about his Dev collection since he created the page, even though he's still about. Maybe he's forgotten he hasn't added any archives to the page yet.

by mrdav - 2014, June 15 - 2:57am

The hqx file uploaded here is not a binhex file. Opening it as a text file shows a list of files, presumably a catalog of the CD contents

There's more disks here: ftp://www.max1zzz.co.uk/*%7CMac%20OS%20Classic/-%7CApple%20disks%7C-/-%7...

Ha! You were correct. I didn't include the "compress" option in Linux's zip utility. It's considerably smaller now. Of course, that's relative; this disc has A LOT of stuff on it. If anyone wants the 7z file, I can post that, too, if appropriate.

One more note: this was from an actual Developer CD I recently acquired. I later found this archive of mostly 1992 developer CDs while searching for E.T.O.:

The site has switched hosts so the server limits are gone. You can upload files up to 1GB in size now.

637MB zip compressed doesn't sound right to me though. That's practically no compression at all.

I have Jan 1992 disc. It's 637 MB Zip-compressed and 128 MB 7z-compressed. Would somebody assist me in posting this? I'm sure it'll become inactive within hours of posting from the sheer size.

Leave it simple, leave it at "Apple". Wink

> I'm having trouble finding some good reference material and/or code examples to start from

Yup. It took me 2 years of beating my head against the (virtual) wall from the time I opened "Inside Macintosh" Vol 1 for the first time and when I completed my first show-worthy app.

There were a few good books (each one specialized) but mostly it was "trial and error" that got me past the learning curve.

The one thing I found the most valuable was an application called "AppMaker". It would let me create a UI and then it would generate the code to bring the UI to life. I still use it to this day.

What exactly is the purpose of this "app" page? I mean if we aren't actually uploading software images of these CDs (I realize they can't be hosted by the Garden, but an external host) what's the point? Shouldn't this be a forum topic or something? I'm really not trying to be a dick, because I am very interested in this topic, I'm just trying to understand what direction this is going. Sadly I have no Apple developer CDs (reference, SDKs or otherwise) and am trying to find a couple. I've only recently picked up "classic" Mac programming (I'm mostly a web app programmer) and to an extent I'm having trouble finding some good reference material and/or code examples to start from...I've got CodeWarrior 10 and THINK C setup, but I'm having trouble getting out of the gate.

Does anyone have any ideas? And also, do any of you see isos, etc being available for download at any point?

Thanks guys!

I can see at least four Mac OS SDK ROMs in the rather fuzzy pics. The rest appear to be System Software disks i.e. I don't see any reference CD's amongst the included pics.

My thoughts align with Gary's... User stamped copies (perhaps of originals)... Although, I had stopped buying Developer CD's from Apple before these dates, so may be wrong.

Please add files.

by Gary - 2013, May 3 - 12:11pm

I suspect the "artwork" was added by the original owner. I looked at the ebay auction photos and found that these disks are part of the "Reference" series. Apple would release a "Reference" CD every 3 months. In the interveening months, they would send a "ToolChest" CD and a "System Software" CD. This pattern went on for several years.

My collection includes the same CDs minus the reptiles.

This looks like the Disks that came with the first CD-ROM equipped Macs (Performas?)…
