Metrowerks is shipping a new set of tools which enables application and content development for Tao Group’s intent, a high performance, portable media platform. These tools don’t come cheap. However an intent/AmigaDE Software Development Kit costs only 100 dollars is already enough to get you started. And if you want to use powerful dynamic graphic scaling capabilities, you need to sign a SDA with Amiga. Then your software will be able to scale properly from handheld to STB/Desktop resolutions. On TechTV Amiga already demonstrated the technologies’ flexibility and performance.
Metrowerks Ships CodeWarrior Development Tools for intent

it looks quite interesting, maybe in next future we’ll have choice=)
Regarding CodeWarrior, a 5k+ USD price tag may seem out of reach for most bedroom developers. However Amiga can already provide you with most needed tools to start development of high quality platform independent software.
Here’s a recent interview with a group of developers currently creating Amiga Anywhere content (including screenshots of some of their games under development):
It’s always a positive sign for a platform when there is some kind of SDK that’s affordable. Increasingly $100 sounds pretty cheap for an SDK.
That TechTV show was pretty cool. Not that you learned anything new, but they should really summarize up all that Bill said there and put it on the front page of amiga.com, or something. Too many people seem to be confused about what Amiga really is these days.
