CodeWarrior 9 Announced

Latest Version of CodeWarrior(TM) Development Studio for Mac(R) OS,
Industry’s “Gold Standard” Development Suite, Enhances Developer
Productivity, Speeds Time to Market

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ — Metrowerks’ position as a leading
provider of development solutions for the Mac(R) OS platform has advanced
with the release of CodeWarrior(TM) Development Studio for Mac OS, v9.

The studio includes a broad array of features that enhance productivity and
shorten development cycles, including:

— the Metrowerks PowerPlant(TM) X C++ framework, which allows developers
to write native Mac OS X code using Mac OS X supported features;

— the fastest compiler and build system available for the Mac platform;

— a feature that provides developers a visual display of their package and
allows for easy drag-and-drop of files or folders into the package; and

— expanded Objective-C code development within the CodeWarrior tool suite.

“This newest version of the CodeWarrior(TM) Development Studio for Mac OS
reflects Metrowerks’ deep understanding of the Macintosh(R) platform and
demonstrates the company’s ongoing commitment to Mac developers,” said
Metrowerks President and Chief Executive Officer, Jim Welch. “Nearly all of
the existing Mac applications released have been built using CodeWarrior
tools, and this new version includes innovations to help Metrowerks
maintain its leadership in development solutions for the Mac platform.”

The newest CodeWarrior suite operates seamlessly with the recently
introduced Metrowerks(R) CodeTEST(TM) Software Analysis Tools for Mac(R) OS
X — the only comprehensive suite of C/C++ software analysis tools
available for the Mac OS X platform. The two products combine to offer a
comprehensive set of development solutions for Macintosh developers.

CodeWarrior Development Studio for Mac OS, v9 runs on Mac OS X and includes
the ability to target Mac OS X, Classic Mac OS and Windows(R) OS
development within a single project to create applications with cross
platform capabilities. The suite supports most common development languages
including C, C++ and Objective-C, allowing developers to work in Apple
Cocoa frameworks within the CodeWarrior environment.

The product includes PowerPlant X, a Macintosh framework for Mach-O
development based on the standard programming language C++. The PowerPlant
X framework for Mac OS X development supports carbon events, HIViews and
Unicode, and allows developers to write native Mac OS X code using Mac OS X
supported features. Also included in the studio is the popular PowerPlant
framework for Classic OS and Mac OS X PEF development.
