    Hi,

    I just got this book, and I was wondering that even though its for 10.2, and I'm on 10.5, should I still read it? Are there any differences from that to now? (conceptual wise, disregarding objc)

    Thanks

    It is the latest version. The only book (so far) that I know of that is for 10.5 is "Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X 3rd Edition"

    Objective-C is pretty much the same except for the few changes they made with Objective-C 2 but if you want to target the iPhone or 10.4 you can't use them anyway. The main difference is in Xcode and Interface Builder, everything else is pretty much the same. Just make sure you are not using deprecated functions and you will be fine.

    So you're sure that this will work for 10.5? Just for learning the overall jist of objc and cocoa?

    Thanks

    You could also load XCode 2.5 into Leopard and work from there. It runs aside 3.0, and for a start, that's not too bad.

    When you're finished and have a handle on what that book offered, you can consider moving forward into XCode 3.1.
