Apple will be releasing the code of the operating system and applications of the Apple Lisa.

Just wanted to let everyone know the sources to the OS and applications were recovered, I converted them to Unix end of line conventions and space for Pascal tabs after the files using Disk Image Chef, and they are with Apple for review. After that's done, the Computer History Museum will do a CHM blog post about the historical significance of the software and the code that is cleared for release by Apple will be made available in 2018. The only thing I saw that probably won't be able to be released is the American Heritage dictionary for the spell checker in LisaWrite.

Merry Christmas everybody.

I really hope someone can use this to get a Lisa emulator up and running!

There's a LISA emulator core (experimental) in MAME already, and then there is ... Their emulation can probably be made more accurate by the release of the source code...

Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator now emulates computers? This feels wrong... ;) (and why not MESS?)
