Apple has released CarbonLib 1.5d5 SDK (Software Development Kit), the latest pre-release version of the kit for Apple's developer community.

This release provides all the necessary files needed to begin Carbon development. The kit supports Mac OS 8.6 or later. Carbon APIs can be used to write Mac OS X applications that will also run on previous versions of Mac OS.

Carbon is designed to provide a "gentle migration" path for developers moving from OS 9 to OS X. The SDK is available for download to members of Apple's Developer Community (ADC).

Apple released CarbonLib 1.5d5 SDK last week.
