The first Eclipse-based development tool for Symbian OS C++ application development has arrived! Carbide.c++ Express 1.0 is now available for download on Forum Nokia.
Note that this is the first in a family of tools. The intent of this first release is to provide a modern yet free replacement for using the command line tools when building simple applications. The intended target customers are users that have so far been restricted to using command line, not because of choice but because of the cost associated with IDE-based development solutions. Such users include hobbyists, students, open source developers etc. Now these developers can get the benefits of improved ease-of-use and higher productivity as provided by an advanced IDE.
The next product to be released in the Carbide.c++ family, Carbide.c++ Developer Edition, is the first tool targeting commercial developers. This tool will be available later this year.
