Metrowerks Ships CodeWarrior for Mac OS, Version 6.0

Provides Migration Path from Classic Mac OS to Mac OS X;
Supports Debugging on Multi-Processor Systems

AUSTIN, Texas-September 19, 2000-Metrowerks today announced the
availability of the newest version of CodeWarrior(r) for Mac OS. Version
6.0 allows developers to target Apple's Carbon Application Programming
Interface (API), providing them the ability to migrate their applications
from "classic" Mac OS to the new Mac OS X.

"By providing support for Carbon, we've ensured that Mac OS developers can
target their applications for Mac OS X, while maintaining backward
compatibility to execute on earlier versions of Mac OS," said Luis Quiroga,
product marketing manager, Metrowerks. "We want all of our customers to be
able to make the migration to Apple's new operating systems, and we've made
the necessary enhancements to Version 6.0 to make this critical migration

CodeWarrior for Mac OS, Version 6.0 also includes support for debugging
applications that have been written to take advantage of multi-processor
systems. CodeWarrior's support for multiple-thread debugging and for
Apple's Multi-processing API allows developers to debug their code as it is
executing on multiple processors.

Brian M. Criscuolo, an engineer with DataViz, Inc., stated: "We use
CodeWarrior products to develop our file translation and our palmtop
compatibility products for both the Macintosh and Palm OS platforms. Our
development team is impressed with the high quality of the Version 6.0
Beta, the compatibility with older releases and the great new features and
Mac OS support that this environment offers - specifically the ability to
develop directly on Mac OS X. We're excited to continue using Metrowerks

"Metrowerks has developed a powerful integrated development environment
(IDE) that's easy to use. We're using the CodeWarrior for Mac OS Version
6.0 beta product because it allows us to become familiar with the new
features and maintain backwards compatibility as we make the move toward OS
X," said Tucker Roth, technical manager for QuarkXPress at Quark, Inc.

Approximately 90 percent of professional Macintosh applications on the
market today were developed using the CodeWarrior IDE.

"Tools are important to the establishment of platforms like Mac OS X, and a
solid tool set can help speed the adoption of the platform by allowing
developers the chance to take full advantage of the new features OS X
offers," said Mark Driver, research director, GartnerGroup E-Business
Technologies. "Backward compatibility will also be an issue, in order to
leverage and support the loyal Apple consumer base."

CodeWarrior support for Mac OS X

CodeWarrior has been Carbonized to run natively on Mac OS X with Apple's
new "Aqua" interface. CodeWarrior supports editing, compiling, linking and
single-machine debugging on Mac OS X, and offers full code generation and
debugging support on both classic Mac OS and Mac OS X.

Metrowerks' PowerPlant application development framework has been improved
to support Carbon events and core foundation. PowerPlant allows developers
to produce commercial-quality software applications quickly and
efficiently. The Constructor tool for editing PowerPlant resources has been
enhanced to support the Aqua user interface. The Profiler tool has been
Carbonized to optimize the application's performance for Mac OS X's new
memory management system.

Version 6.0 supports multiple targets including Carbon, 68K, PowerPC and
cross target support to Microsoft Windows.

Online Programmer Training for Mac OS

In addition to delivering leading-edge tools for Mac OS X, Metrowerks will
offer a free Mac OS programming course at The course,
"Introduction to PowerPlant," is designed to help Mac developers get up to
speed using PowerPlant to create Carbon applications for Mac OS X, as well
as for earlier versions of Mac OS.

The PowerPlant course will open for registration later this fall. Other
Macintosh programming courses on include "Introduction to
C++ for Mac" and "Introduction to CodeWarrior for Mac."

CodeWarrior for Windows, Version 6.0

In addition to the release of CodeWarrior for Mac OS, Version 6.0,
Metrowerks also announced today that CodeWarrior for Windows, Version 6.0
is shipping. The new release includes enhanced ANSI/ISO C++ compliance,
improved debugging, improved Java support and improved cross target support
to Mac OS.
