Origin of aTbRef
This TBX and website was created by Mark Anderson, based on a concept originally created by Benoit Pointet (as 'aTbRef'). From that source the document was greatly enlarged published as a website, so as to aid the Tinderbox community.
The first version of this document 'aTbRef.tbx' and associated website was written to reflect a baseline of Tinderbox v2.4 features and has been regularly updated to encompass all version changes since. The document was revised and re-issued for a v4.5 benchmark and for v4.6, rolling up all the old change notes as these had begun to affect the readability of pages covering oft-changed parts of the application.
As not all users have the latest release, ongoing changes are recorded with the version where they first appear (since the benchmark version). That should aid those who don't upgrade regularly. To continue this since the re-issue, the original aTbRef, covering v2.4.0 through to v4.2.4 is still online for users of older versions but will not be actively maintained. The old version contains inbound links from others sites so these won't break.
Special mention must be made of Eastgate's Mark Bernstein has been extremely helpful along the way in answering all sorts of obscure questions - and shown a lot of patience in his explanations.
Much of the update data is drawn from the Release Notes kindly provided by Eastgate as part of the Tinderbox downloads. Parts of this document that directly quote copyright materials from Eastgate Systems Inc., e.g. the manual, release notes, etc., and do so with permission from Eastgate Systems Inc.
This document, in its public form is not meant to replace or supplant the manual or the wiki as references. Instead it is simply a way of sharing what I've learned from the kindness of others about Tinderbox.
