Metrowerks Ships CodeWarrior Development Tools for Classic Mac OS and Mac OS X.

Business Editors & High-Tech Writers

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 10, 2001

Today, Metrowerks began shipping CodeWarrior for Mac OS, Version 7.0, development tools.

With these tools, developers can build a single application that runs on both Classic Mac OS and Mac OS X architectures. The latest version of CodeWarrior tools provides the power to develop for multiple hosts and multiple targets: Classic Mac OS, Carbon, Native Mac OS X and Java. Version 7.0 also includes the Metrowerks PowerPlant framework, the industry's most popular object-oriented C++ framework, which allows developers to create applications faster and easier.

CodeWarrior for Mac OS, Version 7.0, is an easy-to-use tool suite that saves development time by allowing developers to create new applications using existing code. Additionally, Version 7.0 includes a sophisticated Mach-O project converter that automatically converts Carbon PEF projects to Mach-O, enabling projects to run natively on the Mac OS X platform. Among other features are a new carbonized version of the integrated development environment (IDE), Mac OS X-hosted command-line tools, the latest Altivec support (Velocity Engine), and cross-development tools to target Windows.

Metrowerks customer Alias Wavefront licensed a beta version of CodeWarrior for Mac OS, Version 7.0, tools to create its Maya software, a tool used to create 3-D animation and effects. Andrew Pearce, director of Maya Technologies for Alias Wavefront, described how his team used CodeWarrior to develop one of the largest and most feature-rich applications to target the Mac OS X platform. "Throughout the development process we relied on the CodeWarrior for Mac high-speed compiler and native debugger tools to make the project a success," noted Pearce. "CodeWarrior's combination of reliability and performance along with Metrowerks' ongoing development support ensured a robust, responsive, and reliable end-result." Alias Wavefront develops 3D animation and visual effects software used in the film, video, broadcast, game development, interactive and location-based entertainment markets.

"Metrowerks is committed to providing the Macintosh development community with the most stable and comprehensive integrated development environment to build leading-edge Macintosh applications," said Andy Mastronardi, director of standard platform and academic marketing, Metrowerks.

Metrowerks is also shipping CodeWarrior for Windows, Version 7.0, development tools and a combined package of CodeWarrior for Mac OS and Windows, Version 7.0, tools. All of the Version 7.0 products allow developers to write C/C++ and Java applications that target Classic Mac OS, Mac OS X or Windows operating systems using a single integrated development environment.
