Is Ron Newcomb here?

If so, does he have an updated version of this beauty? As a programmer (currently working on a veeeery retro 3d platformer) I find it very good. However it’s for an old version (6g something, while newest is 6m something) and it may contain outdated info regarding certain constructs.

Ron hasn’t been devoting as much time to Inform stuff for a few years, I think, so I doubt he would be updating the Inform 7 Guide for Programmers anytime soon.

As I recall, the main issue missing with Ron’s guide is adaptive text and responses. I’ve referred to it quite a bit in my work, and can’t remember anything big that didn’t work or wasn’t easy to adapt to the newer versions.

I’m back (for awhile at least), but being a dad of two toddlers means, well, I’m looking to open-source that guide so others can update it. I just do not have the time to be an expert on anything anymore.
