There were rumors earlier to the effect of Atari
(DRI??) rewritting the documentation for the
developers kit, as well as improving the compiler,
linker, assembler. Can anyone fill us in on the
status of these??? Are they for real?? Should we
wait for them or are they so far in the future
that one shouldn't wait?? I desperately need the
info, but don't want to spend my money on "bad"
documention when there is any better to be had.
( I have the Abacus dox's already, enough spent
on unclear documentation... )

Thanx

We are working on a project to completely re-write the system documentation.
The writing should be complete by late Summer (this is a _big_ project).
Once done, we have a deal with a major book publisher to get this into
book form and into dealers and book sellers, a la the Commodore programmers
reference guide books. We should see this by the end of the year, but I
can't imagine how we could get it out sooner than that.
