Did something happen to the cocoa-dev mailing list? The last message I have on my computer is from Dec 23, and when I check the online archives I don’t see anything from 2019. Am I out of the loop?

Apple closed down a bunch of the dev mailing lists (maybe all?).  I think they wanted people to use the forums, or something like that.

There is an alternative set of unofficial lists that was created around that time.  I see traffic on those lists, but for some reason not much.  Was surprised to see the most recent posts I got were also in December.

Note the various subgroups for Cocoa, Xcode, etc.

Here's a little more info on the unofficial lists.  They were started by Jens Alfke, longtime contributor on the old Apple Cocoa lists.

Wow - thanks Andy. Had no idea.
TIL - there are still people porting Carbon apps.
