Apple has confirmed its move to Intel processors, and to ease developers into the transition announced the availability of a Developer Transition Kit.

This kit consists of an Intel-based Mac development system along with preview versions of Apple’s software, which will allow developers to prepare versions of their applications which will run on both PowerPC and Intel-based Macs.

The Developer Transition Kit is available now for $999 to all Apple Developer Connection Select and Premier members.

Intel also confirmed its plans to provide industry leading development tools support for Apple later this year, including the Intel C/C++ Compiler for Apple, Intel Fortran Compiler for Apple, Intel Math Kernel Libraries for Apple and Intel Integrated Performance Primitives for Apple.
