Onyx Ring library v1.3C (2004.06.08)?

Does anyone happen to have a copy of the Onyx Ring library/extension’s version 1.3C dated Jun 08 2004? The latest version I have found at IF Archive is version 1.3B released circa Mar 12 2004.

According to the Wayback Machine link at OnyxRing:Inform Programming & Development, the filename was “orlib_complete.zip”, but the ZIP file was unfortunately not captured. Individual files can still be downloaded from captures, but at least one link (orentrypoints.h) seems to have an incorrect file at the other end – though in that case it is listed as unchanged since the previous version.

For anyone coming across this thread: I put together a pseudo-1.3C+ release, which includes the latest version of every file that I could hunt down with the Wayback Machine. The dates match those listed for the Jun 08 2004 1.3C release, except for the two files listed as changed or new since the last release in the link above – in these cases the post-1.3C version is included. As far as I can tell, this is the final published version of everything in the library, including the documentation PDF.

I’ve uploaded it to the IF Archive, and it’s been added to the unprocessed list at: https://ifarchive.org/if-archive/unprocessed/ORLibrary1.3c.zip. It should keep the same filename even after it reaches its final home. When that happens, I will update the listing on the I6 resources page to include the permanent link.

EDIT: The ZIP file has been processed at IF Archive, and its final location is https://ifarchive.org/if-archive/infocom/compilers/inform6/library/contributions/ORLibrary1.3c.zip.
