CodeWarrior Development Studio for Mac OS v9 targets Mac OS X (Mach-O), Mac OS PPC (PEF) and Win32 (the last version to do so)

CodeWarrior Development Studio for Mac OS v9 unleashes your imagination to develop C, C++, and Objective-C applications faster than ever. Version 9 includes a broad array of features that enhance productivity and shorten development cycles:

Only CodeWarrior tools have PowerPlant™ — the most popular C++ framework for Mac OS development. Version 9 now also includes PowerPlant X framework for Mach-O development, which allows developers to write native Mac OS X code using Mac OS X supported features.
These tools feature the fastest compiler and build system available for the Mac platform, with enhanced code generation and build speed improvements in this version.
The debugger includes a new breakpoints view window, profile information viewer and trace view window.
The IDE project window now includes a new tab for creating application packages that enables arbitrary user-specific layout, and allows drag-and-drop copying of any file or folder to the package.
Version 9 expands support for Objective-C: code completion, syntax coloring, search comments and more.

The CodeWarrior 9.6 update is the latest and includes compatibility with OS X 10.4.

Renewing trial
CodeWarrior 9 will activate a 15-day trial, after this expires the number of files in a project is limited. To restart the trial period:

  1. Replace license.dat (located in Metrowerks CodeWarrior 9.0/Metrowerks CodeWarrior) with the original file from the installation disc.
  2. Open /Library/Application Support/.fiplrc and remove the line corresponding to your CodeWarrior version ("Pro 9.0"). Alternately, just remove the file if there's only one line in it.
  3. Start CodeWarrior and click "Register Later" to get another 15 days! You will need to quit and re-launch CodeWarrior for the new license to take effect.

The 4th download contains a replacement license.dat file that is supposed to enable unlimited IDE, MacOS, MacOSX and Win32 options. I have not tested it except to note that it causes the notification about a trial version to disappear.

Fantastic, thanks for this, and your method of resetting the timer!
