Just in case anyone of you currently evaluates S60 development: Carbide.c++, the official IDE from Nokia, is now completely free according to Lucian Tomuta:
The new Carbide.c++ 2.0 has been released today and there’s a bit of extra surprise coming with this news: all the Carbide.c++ editions are now free of charge.
In fact the Express version as such no longer exists, and while the installer still prompts you to select one of the three remaining editions they are all available to you for free so you may as well pick the OEM edition and have all the product features enabled.
As Carbide is Eclipse- (and possibly Cygwin-) based, people currently using an Eclipse-based development environment like Palm’s Garnet OS Developer studio are advised to use a virtualization solution like VMWare or the free, but slower VirtualPC from Microsoft (which also works on XP Home – believe it or not).
In case anyone of you feels like giving it a whirl, get the program from its web site.
