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

    There haven't been EDM/2 news posted to the public in a long time, but the work
    to update the wiki continues. Since the last post news (September 2013) there had been a lot of clean up work on the articles and content that has been updated.

    - List of OS/2 Documentation

    Extra updates

    The OS/2 API Project

    There had been also an important effort to continue with "The OS/2 API Project"
    and consolidate more information about the OS/2 native API and also third party

    The File by File Documentation Project

    On the EDM/2 wiki there are also the effort to document more information about each of OS/2's files. The files are listed under "Category:Files".

    OS/2's Components

    Trying to get a different way to view all OS/2's components there is also the Components category on this page "Category:Components", when we try to explain the building blocks that compose OS/2 .

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