We promised. You believed us. Here it is: The third volume of the Developer CD Series, A Disc Called Wanda. Some of the hot new stuff includes AppleLink Offline!— a HyperCard snapshot of our online system, Developer University Stack— a stack that has the ability to automatically log into AppleLink and register you for our D.U. classes, and d e v e l o p— our quarterly technical journal, in searchable electronic splendor. Overall it's newer, better, more up to date, and has much fancier cover art. All the information, tools, and esoteric goodies you've come to expect are here, and more.

A note about the 2nd download available from above:
Originally sourced from the BetaArchive and converted to BIN/CUE format (for ease of access across platforms). It contains a data track (the main software content) and three audio tracks written and performed by the Miller brothers (creators of Cosmic Osmo, MYST, Riven, etc.). To access this archive, it must be written back to CD media and played on suitable hardware. That is, it cannot be accessed via an emulator such as Basilisk II, etc. - To be playable on emulators (for the data content alone), use the DL #1 archive.

We've changed the way we do this since our last CD. Instead of a song or two by several contributors, we decided it would be cool to feature someone (or a group of someones). This issue we chose Cyan. This developer put together Cosmic Osmo, an interactive disk and CD-ROM based adventure in HyperCard. The music was written and performed by Robyn Miller and Rand Miller (they're brothers).Excerpt: from enclosed ReadMe documentation

The upload is here now, only it's not the bin/cue the page's creator (miku2007) had mentioned...

Edit: 2021/02/07 - The Wanda disk complete with the audio tracks has been sourced, and added.
