As some may have noticed, I promised to mail Metrowerks for a clarification on their Codewarrior Development Tools for Intent. Thomas Loupe, marketing manager for the product, was kind enough to respond, and while my licensing question is still open, it's worth a 'Read More.'
Yes, I know I need to do something about my email address..|

Subject: FW: Intent SDK question?
I am happy to help shed some light on this for the Amiga community. The tools we have just released are targeted for device manufacturing engineering teams architecting entire embedded product designs. Basically to take a project from concept, to pre-platform development (before the device is designed) on through post platform design, on through to the launch of the product. This is not for application developers. It is for this developers that need to get deep and detailed view into the hardware.
Early next week, my colleagues will be in London for a trade show. We are meeting with Senior members of Amiga to investigate supplying a tool for Amiga developers such as yourself. I can not provide more information than that at this time as it is simply not available. Rest assured, we are aware this is a thriving and active 3rd party community out there and we are eager to support your endeavors.
Please let me know if you have any follow up questions.
