Leopard UDIF resources in XML

  • I have long been frustrated with the need to resort to obscure Carbon
    APIs in order to add the various metadata to disk images that I want
    to distribute (e.g. for click-though license and the like).  It
    appears that 'hdiutil' in Leopard has acquired a new verb, udifrez,
    which seems to be designed to make it easier to add resources to your
    disk image.  It claims that the resource can come either in the form
    os an old-fashioned resource fork or a fancy, newfangled XML file.

    The question I have is this: Is there any documentation for the new
    XML format for UDIF resources or are we just moving from one poorly
    documented and arcane format to another one?

    Cheers,
      Nicko
