    EDM/2 is the premier site to find OS/2 and eComStation software development information.

    See the link for all the updates to the EDM/2 web site.

    Here are some news about the site.

    Non-EDM/2 Republished Articles

    There are several OS/2 and eComStation programming articles floating

    around. When the authors authorize to republish their articles under the

    Creative Commons license, it can be included on the wiki and the most

    important thing of all, there are clear rules to create derivative


    The re-published articles on the EDM/2 wiki are:

    EDM/2 Republished Articles

    Since we are changing to a Wiki format, republishing permission

    allowing derivative work for the articles has to be requested. There had

    been good response from part of the Authors that I was able to contact.

    Several authors (all that I was able to contact) accepted that his

    articles were republished under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share

    Alike 3.0 license to me migrated to wiki site.

    The old EDM/2 articles that were re-published are:

    The Infinitely Floating Spinbutton by Marc Mittelmeijer and Eric Slaats (February 1995)

    Building an Editor - Part 1 by Marc Mittelmeijer and Eric Slaats (November 1995)

    The Service-Oriented Home Page PrimerΓÇÄ By Marco J. Shmerykowsky and Sally A. Handley (September 1997)


    There is also some non-Creative Commons development related articles/publications that the EDM/2 wiki links to.

    This month it had included the following links.

    Links to several OS/2 programming articles from OS/2zine (At the right of each category)

    Links to several OS/2 programming articles from OS2VOICE (At the right of each category)

    Extra updates

    Also lately updated:

    The OS/2 API Project was updated with a new design. But it stills a lot of work
    left to have the APIs documented in Creative Commons.

    Some of the content of the EDM/2 classic pages had been migrated to the wiki.

    I want to thank all the authors that allowed their articles and documentation to be published on the EDM/2 wiki.

    Help is always welcome, contact me if you want to help me with the wiki
