    thanks,
    Cocoa replaces Carbon on the Mac... Are you running a 32 bit or 64 bit CPU?

      Running Snow Leopard on an Intel-based i Mac (2.66) 4GB. I believe this is a 64 bit system -- looking for an answer from the STS team. Why are there three Mac versions? Is Carbon still recommended?

      Thanks,

      Lawrence

        Hi,

        if you run Snow Leopard and want to use or Eclipse 3.6.1 based STS versions (STS 2.5.0.RC1 and above) feel free to download the Cocoa versions. Cocoa in 3.6.1 has been greatly improved and this is why we now recommend this instead of the deprecated Carbon SWT implementation.

        There is probably no reason to use the 64bit version at this time, as long as you don't plan to run with a huge heap sizes.

        To why we have 3 versions: There are still people that aren't able to run Cocoa since they are running an older Mac OS X version.

        Cheers, Christian
