AUSTIN, Texas-August 6, 1996- Metrowerks Inc. (NASDAQ:MTWKF, TSE/MSE: MWK)
today announced a new release of CodeWarrior for BeBox, the Be-native
version of its award-winning Integrated Development Environment (IDE),
which will ship the first week of September, 1996.

The BeBox edition of CodeWarrior is used to develop applications for the
BeOS – a multi-processor-based operating system developed by Be, Inc.
The BeOS is the heart of the BeBox computer system introduced last year.
The BeBox integrates multiple PowerPC microprocessors into a personal
computing system geared for sophisticated digital design.

CodeWarrior for BeBox, written directly to the native BeOS application
programming interface (API) and application framework, boasts a
multithreaded IDE, enabling concurrent compilation, which takes advantage
of the multiple processors found in the BeBox to speed application

CodeWarrior for BeBox DR2 incorporates changes to the IDE such as
re-structured preferences and a “zoom-to-definition” code-exploration
feature, making programming easier. Additionally, improvements to the
unlimited linker and C++ language conformance strengthen performance,
however, the most significant new feature in CodeWarrior for BeBox DR2 is
an integrated Be-native debugger which allows for native, single-machine

CodeWarrior for BeBox will continue to be offered direct from Metrowerks
for an introductory price of $149. Developers who purchase the DR2 release
will receive an extended set of updates, including all releases through
CodeWarrior for BeBox 5. With version 3, the product will resume its
suggested retail price of $299 and will include two free updates.
