Syllable, AtheOS Syllable's resident graphics designer Ruud Kuin has published the first issue of his Syllable Development Newsletter [screenshot]. This new project is a continuation of the SDN magazines by Michael Saunders that were popular around two years ago. The first issue contains five main articles and five smaller ones, for a total of eleven pages, by six contributors. Subjects range from a developer interview to the first part of a programming tutorial series. It is accompanied by an archive that conveniently collects software that was released recently: three pieces this time.

Uneven quality...

It's an interesting start, but the articles are of uneen quality and length. The one on multithreading was short and sweet, but only really spoke about messages, and even then, in no useful amount of details: it was much like the last two "Pirates of the Carribean" movies: it felt much like a trailer for the next n movies, instead of something that was self-coherent and useful by itself.

On the other hand, one long article about the history of Syllable actually went into a sufficient amount of depth.

It seems it'd likely be much more long-term viable if they ensured that there were perhaps fewer, but better quality articles, instead of the results for this one.
