MOXiI - 2nd Edition Typos

Very minor but Figure 1-3 on page 3 states that iOS4.x used armv8. Should it be armv6?

Apologies if there is another place to post items like this.

J says: No this is the perfect place, and you are correct. v6. not v8. Thank you

Volume 1 - page 9 - Table 1-5:

The code name of iOS 10.2 was "Corry", not "Corey", and the code name of iOS 10.3-10.3.1 was "Erie", not "Dubois".

Volume 1 - Chapter 2 - Interlude "Property Lists" - page 25

"Property lists are another legacy of NeXTSTEP, which adopted them back in the day where XML was all the rage"

That's not correct. The XML format was introduced by Apple which calls the previous NeXTSTEP/OpensStep format "old-style ASCII property lists", as documented in https://developer.apple.com/library/content/documentation/Cocoa/Conceptual/PropertyLists/OldStylePlists/OldStylePLists.html.

Please keep them coming. I have already put them into the next v1.0.2 of the book, thank you!

Re: Plists - I need to double check that, because I, for one, did actually see the XML form in NeXTSTEP 3.3.... At least I think so. Go figure now when there's no NeXT boxes anymore..

Volume 1 - Chapter 2

"The book's companion website offers the jlutil tool, which is not only open source, but is also available for *OS variants"

You should provide the specific URL since it is not listed in http://www.newosxbook.com/index.php?page=downloads or http://www.newosxbook.com/index.php?page=code.

Volume 1 - Chapter 2 - Output 2-15

"BridgeSupport # Obj-C/Swift bridging"

BridgeSupport's XML files are destined not for Swift but for dynamic languages such as Python and Ruby.

J says: Actually, not for that, either . For OSAScript. That's further in the book. but typo anyway. Corrected, thanks
