New Logo and Redesign

  • Redesign - The new logo is choosen and a first and hopefully final draft for the new site layout has been created - check it out ;)


NOTE: This section should not be extended anymore. We reloaded the EDM/2 magazine and we recommend to put all developer stuff in there. This wiki is a mess at the moment and we will clean that up one day and migrate the stuff that makes sense to EDM/2. Thanks!

This section contains hints and tricks and descriptions of undocumented stuff. Undocumented means there's no official documentation or the documentation (for example included on DevCon CDs) isn't available to the public anymore. But DON'T JUST COPY any documentation you may have into the Wiki. Keep in mind it's copyrighted!

  • Undocumented stuff
  • Mozilla - some stuff regarding building Mozilla on OS/2
  • SDL - some tips & tricks about how to port applications using SDL to OS/2
  • WPS - how to program for the WPS. Note: the german Wikipedia may have more information about the WPS. Go here.

Admin Guide

So far it's more or less just me who does all the work on webpages and this somewhat sucks because like this a lot of stuff depends on my lazyness. The following document explains the tasks necessary to create a new project at, including setting up CVS repositories, creating webpages and so on. I hope that I will find some volunteers one day who help me on doing that.
