We purchased a number of USB-BDM Multilink devices and they all came with CodeWarrior 3.x except one... We use the things mostly on Star12 stuff, but also have a single 08 project.

Anyway, we needed to set up a temporary station so we grabbed the last backup BDM off the shelf and set it up. We still set it up from the master set we use and tossed the CD case in the 'archive' pile.

Only I noticed the printing was different on the cover. So I opened it and it came with CW 5.0 for the HC(S)08 and CW3.1 for the HC(S)12.

Now, Originally we went through upgrades from CW1.0 and then 2.0 and finally 3.0 and 3.1 so I'm not adverse to upgrading. And currently my 08 work is a 'single' project so it's not that big a deal to upgrade.

But... Are there any issues with a 3.1 to 5.0 upgrade of CW? Are there any differences that are noticable? As I said, not a big deal, but if there are differences with no apparant advantages to me now, I'll stay with 3.1 for both processors just for consistancy.
