[Moderator] Leopard documentation update now available online

  • Hi All

    An updated version of the Leopard Developer documentation is no
    available online and as an update in Xcode.

    This release adds _significant_ amount new content over what is
    available on the release DVD, or on the developer seed.

    34 documents have been upgraded, and 16 are first version releases or
    content updates (typically means significant changes)

    And best of all, you can get the new content right from Xcode.

    In the Xcode Documentation window, go to the gear menu at the bottom
    left. Select "Documentation Set Updates -> Check Now". The Core
    Reference Library and Developer Tools Reference Library should appear
    in orange with an "Update" button. The Java Reference Library and
    WebObjects Reference Library should have a "Get" button next to them
    since they were not installed by default.

  • The AppKit release notes, available online at:

    http://developer.apple.com/releasenotes/Cocoa/AppKit.html

    is a good place to get a detailed overview of changes in AppKit and
    related areas.

    I needed to press a "Subscribe" button in the "Apple" item in the
    documentation-set list. Is that right?

    I then was asked to give ADC authentication.

    Now I have orange entries with empty circles next to them. I assume
    these latter are progress indicators, but they aren't moving.
    Shouldn't they be moving?

  • My XCode seems to be stuck, and just beeps when I click on the
    window.  "Quit" is greyed out, and I have no progress indicators.

    They start to show a blue progress segment if you wait a bit.

  • XCode is still reporting a 404 for me, is there something wrong at my
    end, or Apple's?

    Things work fine for me... but I started the update shortly after the
    email to the list so I may have missing everyone trying to update.

  • Is anyone else having problems with getting the new docs?  I click the
    button to update, enter my username/password, and keep getting rejected.  It
    keeps asking me over and over again for my password until it eventually
    fails.  Any ideas?  And yes, my ADC login info is correct, so that's not the
    problem! ;-)

    Anything unusual about your ADC login? What type characters are in the
    login name / password, etc.

    FYI I just started an update from my home system and it is working
    fine (maxing my DSL connection).

  • I'm also still having this problem.  I do have one non-alphanumeric character in my password.  I can also open the feed from Safari without trouble.

    I have an "@" in my name but only alphanumeric characters in my
    password and it is working for me.

    Nothing showing up in the console log? (Console.app)

    -Shawn
  • This is all that I get in the console log.  It occurs shortly after Xcode is opened, no additional messages when I try to update or upon failure.

    anything in my console on failure.

  • I reset my password with just letters and numbers, 10 characters in both username and password.  Even deleted my keychain items for connect.apple.com.  Re-entered the info and I still get the failure.  Besides numerous "Security message buffer overflowed" from various .mac syncing processes, nothing to note in the logs.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks again,

    Dave

    me the number (off-list). I'll follow up on it here.
