Now that you mention the feature freeze...
The tools that generate the Carbon bindings on OSX (that is most of
Mac/Modules) currently process the Universal Headers, which are
basically the OS9 SDK. I'm contemplating modifying them to use the
system headers instead, which would make it possible to update the
Carbon bindings and support API features that were introduced in OSX.
It is however rather unlikely that I'll manage to finish this before
beta1 is out.
How hard is the feature freeze? Would it be possible to update the
Carbon bindings after beta1? Given Apple's focus on backward
compatibility the update should only add new functionality, not
remove existing functions/types.
