About the MACup magazine:
The editorial focus of the MACup was put on the topics of media production, graphic, DTP, video, Web, audio, and animation, and thus mainly aimed at graphic designers and professionals from the publishing (publishing professionals), as well as musicians and Film/Video producers.
Since Apple focused on consumers, the MACup magazine has been abandoned in 2011.

Started with Macwelt Archiv-CD 2003, found previous CDs in my personal archive as well.

@ IIGS_User:
I made some research on the year collection CDs that the Macwelt magazine offered (link).

It itself offered all issues up to the year 2009 as True PDFs for free for registered users as a give-away during its 20-year anniversary in september 2009. Since 2010, they also include the True PDFs of all issues of the previous year in the accompanying CD of the january issue (= no more extra year collection CDs anymore).

The shop that used to sell them no longer (see link for more details).

So I think it would be ok to have all the issues (up to the year 2009) preserved for future reference.

Um, you're right regarding the missing year collection CDs, but for now I'm ready.
The only source for further stuff like this is eBay for now, maybe.

Would like to upload "Macwelt 1999 - 2003" (one CD-ROM that holds that all) too,
but this monthly magazine is still available today.

Well done IIGS_User ! Laughing out loud
Thanks for uploading all your year collection CDs of this nice Mac magazine. So we have now (1994-1999) online now. The Magazine is no longer published since 2011, so perhaps we are able to find the missing year collection CDs (2000-2011), too, to complete this series !

The CD sleeve doesn't limit the system requirement to PowerPC at the Mac side and doesn't limit it to Windows 95 at the PC end, but I hope it's valid for the Acrobat Reader incluced on CD only.
