(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

Ron Liechty in CodeWarrior 10 news:

"To that end, in addition to G5 support, we are planning that a NEW CodeWarrior for Mac OS will be available in 2005."

I wonder what that means? Are they rewriting the IDE? Can I dream that it would be written with Cocoa so that I can hack the hell out of it's NSTextView's?

I don't really use CodeWarrior a whole lot anymore though. I upgraded to 9 when it came out last year, but dropping Java support really sort of killed any use for it. I still keep my 8 install around just for that, and I've tried moving over to Xcode for Java, but it just doesn't feel right. I can't stand Eclipse, and the other Java based IDE's just don't feel right to me. What is a picky Java programmer to do?

I would really like to use it to write cocoa apps since it's compiler is wicked fast, but I've gotten way to used to adding my own custom hacks to Xcode and I don't think I would be able to live without Completion Dictionary. Hopefully this next release they'll get their act together and do something worthwhile.
