As reported by PalmInfoCenter this week, Metrowerks has announced in a statement to developers that they will not release a new version of CodeWarrior for the Palm OS platform for Macintosh operating systems. CodeWarrior is one of the leading commercial development tools for creating Palm OS applications.
CodeWarrior Development Studio for Palm OS Platform v9 was recently released for Windows in December.
This decision makes CodeWarrior for Palm OS v8 the last release for the Macintosh (OS9) platform.

Thus, at this moment, "PRC-Tools for OSX" is the only Palm OS development environment that runs natively under Mac OS X.


October 20, 2002:

The new PRC-Tools for OSX "release 2" is finally ready!
It runs on Mac OS X "Jaguar" 10.2.x, and it includes the latest version of the tools (version 2.2).

A lot of well-know Macintosh related websites (like macnn.com, macintouch.com, macitynet.it, macplus.org, macgeneration.com, maczin.com) have an article about this site.
After five days of life, this site got 2360 visitors and 270 of them have downloaded the PRC-Tools for OSX package. I would have never imagined it! I'm glad!

PRC-Tools for Mac OS X and this site are born!
