Apart from the general updates, fixes, more thorough documentation of functions, etc. here are some highlights:

– PDF format documentation included
– Search entry in the HTML documentation (only searches data types, however)
– fix for symlink flattening in Mac Framework distribution
– added information about creating icons for ui objects
– new appendix to the SDK listing messages to objects and their prototypes
– added ext_quickmap.h
– new ‘windowwatcher’ project to demonstrate how to attach to patcherview to find out about window resizing and scrollbar movement
– new ‘collect’ project demonstrates use of the C++ STL in an external
– new ‘dspstress~’ project uses up the amount of CPU you tell it to use to create a high-processor-load testing environment

HUUUGE thanks for the updated SDK documentation – been working with the 5.0.6 SDK for a while and the 5.0.8 SDK seems to contain all the info in one document. "Manual-esque" layout in PDF format and more code examples are really helpful. Much Appreciated, s. lexus.
