MPLAB IDE v8
The current version of MPLAB IDE, version 8.92, is the last MPLAB 8 version that will contain new device support. It is a 32-bit application on Microsoft Windows and includes several free software components for application development, hardware emulation and debugging. MPLAB IDE also serves as a single, unified graphical user interface for additional Microchip and third-party software and hardware development tools.
Support for MPLAB IDE, along with sample code, tutorials, and drivers can be found on Microchip's website. MPLAB IDE v8 does not support Linux, Unix or Macintosh operating systems.
MPLAB X IDE
MPLAB X is not a new version of the current MPLAB IDE v8 framework but is instead based on Oracle's open-source NetBeans platform. In addition to its predecessor's functionalities and compatibility with Microchip's existing development tools, the new IDE utilises many NetBeans features allowing for user-interface improvements and performance upgrades. This also includes highly anticipated cross-platform support in MPLAB IDE, allowing development for PIC microcontrollers on Mac OS X and Linux operating systems, in addition to Windows. This IDE also support the SDCC open source compiler on the three major OS: Mac, Linux and Windows. By using the MPLABX with SDCC one may be able to set up a complete free suite for programming Microchip PIC's in C language.
