[] Totalview Technologies Expands Totalview(R) Debugger Product Line For Mac OS X. New License Options for Jaguar-Ready TotalView(R) Individual Edition, the Industry's Leading Multi-Core Debugger, Designed to Meet Growing Quad-Core Market Demands.

Natick, MA - October 12, 2007 - TotalView Technologies, the world's leading provider of scalable debugging and analysis software solutions for the multi-core era, today introduced a new version of its TotalView Individual Edition Debugger for Mac OS X to support source code debugging on quad-core machines. TotalView Individual Edition allows developers working on Mac systems to either completely debug an application on their workstation, or to maximize productivity by beginning debugging activities on the workstation before transferring to scarce large scale development machines. The company is also announcing a new lower price for its current TotalView Individual Edition license for Mac OS X, for debugging on single or dual-core core machines.

TotalView is a comprehensive source code and optional memory debugging solution that dramatically enhances developer productivity by simplifying the process of debugging parallel, data-intensive, multi-process, multi-threaded or network-distributed applications. Built to handle the complexities of the world's most demanding applications, TotalView supports mixed environments including mixed parallel paradigms (OpenMP and MPI) and mixed languages (FORTRAN 90 and C++, for example) in one debugging session, and mixed versions of compilers in one session. TotalView is also robust and easy to use, with an intuitive GUI that enables users to quickly isolate and identify the root cause of problems.

"Our TotalView Individual Edition license allows Mac developers access to the same award-winning technology that has been used for more than 20 years to debug multi-process and multi-threaded programs, on a laptop or single workstation," said Dick Andersen, vice president of marketing at TotalView Technologies. "This brings a tremendous benefit to developers who need a simple but robust everyday debugger to continually use while developing programs that run on workstations or large scale HPC systems."

TotalView Individual Edition for Mac OS X is Jaguar-ready and can be utilized on single, dual-core and now quad-core machines, with programs running up to a maximum of 32 processes or threads. The TotalView Individual Edition license for Mac OS X is available at a price of $849 for the quad-core version and the reduced price of $559 for the single and dual-core version. Both options are eligible for TotalView Technologies' educational program, with up to an 80% discount.
