Because there was too much data to fit on a single CD-ROM, Apple started alternating between 3 DISCs:
System Software
Tool Chest
Reference Library.
The System Software Edition also lost its name -- so I just note the picture on the CD.

April 1993 : Penguin on DISC (no name) - System Software Edition
May 1993 : Bright Bytes, Big CD - Tool Chest Edition
June 1993 : ROM the world in 80 nanoseconds - Reference Library Edition
July 1993 : Pyramid & Palm Tree on DISC (no name) - System Software Edition
August 1993 : CD Slickers - Tool Chest Edition
September 1993 : Spinal Trap - Reference Library Edition
October 1993 : Windmill on DISC (no name) - System Software Edition
November 1993 : Northern Hexposure - Tool Chest [Front] [Back]
December 1993 : Of Mouse and Men - Reference Library Edition [Front]
1994

January 1994 : Bull & Bullfighter on DISC (no name) - System Software Edition
February 1994 : In the Seek of the Night - Tool Chest Edition
March 1994 : Little Bit Man - Reference Library Edition [Front]

is there anyway that anyone knows to search the contents of all of these cds?
i guess id have to have copies of them all on a drive, but i was hoping for an exported txt file made by someone who has already completed the task of collecting them!

These are slowly being uploaded to the Macintosh Repository.

Here is 1995 for example, https://www.macintoshrepository.org/12727-apple-developer-cds-1995

Hey macStuff,

I have been member of APDA since 1988, which later changed its name in ADG and then ADC up to 2007, and in these years I collected all the documentation they distributed.

I still have almost all CDs and DVDs from 1994 to 2002, so I can help you with the June 1999 ADC’s CDs you are looking for :

https://we.tl/t-fLK70OWDHV

All are .ISO files .ZIP compressed and the ’System Software’ CD is Mac OS 8.6.
Remember that the files will be available only for 7 days !

Have a nice weekend :)

guiber; do u have any of the stuff from the time of Sep 2006?
ive been working on this ADC Mirror site:
http://adcmirror.oldschooldaw.com/
my idea is to extend alot fo the content to add back the stuff that was *removed by apple*
and make it one of the most functionally operational apple developer mirror from 2004-2006 time period

for example; on the page now there is a link that says mac os 8 + 9; that link didnt exist before;) i added it
lol

Sorry macStuff, all the ADC collection from 2002 to 2007, after I tried to sell it on eBay with no luck, has been given as a gift to this Apple museum here in Italy : https://www.mmn.it/museum-un-nuovo-spazio-espositivo-per-rivivere-la-storia-del-personal-computing/  (sorry, it’s available only in italian language).

I have only kept the pics I used to sell them on eBay :(

If you need help, only 1994-2001 discs are still in my hands.

nice collection!

i will be getting alot of them soon from a friend; just got to wait till he can upload them;
hopefully he will getting alot of them to KNEZ to make available
(If knez is available.. lol)

I understand the ADC cds used to rotate between 4 different formats::
-System Software edition
-Reference library edition
-Mac OS SDK Edition
-Tool Chest Edition

updating the "collective collection" each time with new versions
so really if u divide the twelve months of the year by 4; thats 3 different sets of cds per year
depending on what your looking for; you need to go after the right "edition"

msg for guiber:
http://macintoshgarden.org/forum/osx-kernel-debug-kits
hey check this page here
if u can help me track down any of those kernel debug kits from the ADC developer cds if you haev any of the ones im missing would be a big help
thanks

also check my adc mirror ive been making here
http://adcmirror.oldschooldaw.com/
http://adcmirror.oldschooldaw.com/ftp.apple.com/developer/
http://adcmirror.oldschooldaw.com/ftp.apple.com/developer/Development_Kits/

basicalyl apple has removed all PPC stuff from the apple developer site entirely
not sure when this happened im sure in the last 4 years sometime tho

the most important ones im after obviouisly are 10.3.9 (ppc) / 10.4.11 (ppc) / 10.5.8 (ppc)
i only have the 10.4.11 for intel at the moment

this kind of thing really bothers me; because as a web developer/designer you arent supposed to BREAK LINKS
and REMOVE CONTENT the whole point of making new websites + adding information is not to obfuscate + delete the previous existing links
that other people may still depend on; it used to be that companeis would pay designers/developers like myself extra to go out of our way to find ways of avoiding breaking old existing content; but nowdays companies just delete old websites at a whim; and dont think of the impact.. i hate it; i hate the way youtube removes users accounts for copyright aswell; its so abusive + disrespectful to their own users; the internet in general; if you told me in 2004 that it would end up this way i wouldnt have believed it; everyone was so all about independance + anti-corporate control; everyone used to quite the book "no-logo" naomi klein https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_Logo its disgusting where we are at; everyone has their heads so far up their own asses they only care about their own money making agendas;  anyway; lets try to get these files back in public domain; for people who wish to still do their own development on ppc versions of OSX; even if it is only for hobby purposes;
