You have to be kidding. Paul Guyot et al have released a preview of their Newton Connection Library, which should eventually replace Apple’s stuff for hooking a Newton to a desktop (which was flaky anyway). NCL seems to do everything it possibly can with XML and TCP/IP… but there’s also Rendezvous/ZeroConf autodiscovery in there.
Is this the first ZeroConf implementation in a handheld? Outrageous!
