Latest Release of Version Control System Highlights New Stand-alone Client

AUSTIN, Texas – August 4, 1997- Metrowerks Inc. (NASDAQ: MTWKF,
TSE/ME:MWK), one of the world’s leading providers of software development
tools, today announced they are shipping this week Metrowerks Visual
SourceSafe for Macintosh Release 5, the latest version of its
cross-platform revision control system. MW Visual SourceSafe for Macintosh
replaces the CodeManager brand name and significantly extends the feature
set of earlier versions of the product.

With the addition of the new stand-alone client, programmers now have a
choice of three interfaces when using MW Visual SourceSafe for Macintosh:
the CodeWarrior IDE, the stand-alone application, or MPW. The client
provides users with revision history without using MPW or an IDE. In
fact, anyone who needs to document revisions can do so, outside of the
programming environment, by using the new stand-alone client.

Other new features include: support for project cloaking; database
shortcuts; database locking and unlocking; active login state; and many
others. Metrowerks Visual SourceSafe for Macintosh 5 is compatible with
Microsoft Visual SourceSafe 5.0.

Pricing and Availability

Metrowerks Visual SourceSafe for Macintosh 5 is shipping now, priced at
US$499, and is available from Metrowerks and Metrowerks authorized
resellers. Academic pricing is US$119. All purchases include one free
product update.
