CodeWarrior lets you set multiple targets for a single project.  The MacOS PPC stationary, for example, contains a "Final" target and a "Debug" target.  You can add a target by going to the Target tab in the project window and selecting Project->Create_New_Target.

The options associated with a target are set by selecting Edit-><targetName>Settings.  You can select a target with the Project->Set_Default_Target menu item.

The options you want to include in your Debug and Release versions are up to you.  Typically, the Release version would include optimization and not include symbol information; the Debug version would be the reverse.

In the default C/C++ stationary, the Release version has Peephole optimization and Schedule Instructions set in the PPC Processor tab, Full optimization set in the Global Optimizations tab, and SYM file generation off in the Linker tab.  The Debug version has these settings reversed.
