These files can either be browsed using a normal text editor or, more usefully, using the DSDN (Dolphin Smalltalk Documentation and News) application available from Bill Schwab's DSDN page. This is a tool which collects together information from the Dolphin image, Education Centre and Newsgroup Archive files downloaded from this page and allows them to be viewed and searched as one resource.

A standalone news archive browser is included in my standard Goodies package.

The full uncompressed archive contains a total of 37977 articles and needs 48.5 MB of disc space.

The zip files for 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000 contain all the news articles for the appropriate year organized into four text files, one for each quarter; from 2001 onwards this yearly zip file will contain the articles on a monthly basis. The articles for individual months in the current year will also be available as a single zipped text file and be made available on the first day (usually) of the following month.

I have made no changes to the content of any of the articles available in this archive so the views expressed within them are those of the original author.
