Last week Adobe officially released version 8.0 of its Illustrator package.
The latest version features tighter integration with Adobe's other products (such as Photo-shop) and a range of new creative features. For example, the new Gradient Mesh tool allows users to blend multiple colours in several directions at once to create air-brush-like effects.
Version 8.0 costs #299. Registered users of Illustrator 7.0 can upgrade for #75, while upgrades are free to users who bought version 7.0 after 24 August 1998. The package is available for Windows 95/98, NT 4.0 and Power Mac platforms.
