For Immediate Release:

ActiveDeveloper v2.16 — IDE Released for Mac OS X 10.3 and 10.2

November 2003 — Today InterACTIVE-Technology released ActiveDeveloper
version 2.16 for MacOS X 10.3 and 10.2 – our Runtime Objective-C & C IDE,
JIT Compiler and Debugger — supporting Cocoa, WebKit and QuickTime.

With its “Develop & Continue” ActiveDeveloper takes an Object and
Development oriented approach to merging Objective-C Development and
Debugging into ONE single combined activity – as opposed to the more
Debugging and C stack level oriented approach taken in Xcode.

ActiveDeveloper does this by giving you new and LIVE Workspace Editor,
Class Editor and Object Browser and object level operations like Evaluate,
Display and Inspect known from IDE’s in the Smalltalk roots of the
Objective-C language.

ActiveDeveloper version 2.16 is integrated with the new Xcode IDE similar
to how it has worked in concert with Project Builder for the last couple of
years – so adding ActiveDeveloper you can have the best of both worlds.
ActiveDeveloper 2.16 adds support for Mac OS X 10.3 Panther and it’s new
gcc 3.3, speeding up incremental compilation more than 50% on most tasks,
bringing it’s responsiveness back to the level from the gcc 2.x days and

ActiveDeveloper 2.16 works with “Fix & Continue” and “ZeroLink” options
turned both ON or OFF – just as you like. But since “ZeroLink” downgrades
the usefulness of your Development builds, so you can’t copy them around
your system anymore or give them out to colleagues or beta testers – we
tend to advice ActiveDeveloper users against using “ZeroLink” – because
ActiveDeveloper gives them the same benefits – without the downsides …

The ActiveDeveloper IDE cuts your API learning curve and scales to
Development of any size Project. With ActiveDeveloper you get an
Incremental Objective-C IDE that brings you a lot closer to the Objects you
work with …

All this makes ActiveDeveloper version 2.16 the best version ever to
evaluate the product.
