This new wizard is similar to those for creating a new EiffelVision2 or WEL projects and should get you started right away. This wizard and the current Cocoa-Eiffel library will be available in a development version of EiffelStudio soon after 6.4 is out and will hopefully make it in the official version 6.5.
