Corel Corp. has announced that CorelDraw 8 for Windows 95 and Windows NT will be released for production on November 4. The company said that the software has been made more intuitive and enhances productivity.
CorelDraw 8 consists of the core drawing package, plus the picture editing software PhotoPaint and the 3D imaging application CorelDream 3D. Corel spokesperson Neera Panchmatia says the new release features an increased number of interactive tools which enhance productivity by allowing more actions to be performed with the mouse or with keyboard shortcuts, rather than through menus.
According to Neera Panchmatia, the functionality of the ?knife? tool has been increased. Screens redraw faster because the background of a drawing is now converted to a bitmap to speed up display.
Corel has also boosted the internet functionality in its flagship product, adding an Internet publishing wizard with the ability to publish drawings in HTML or to use CorelBarista to convert them into Java applets. CorelDraw 8 also ships with two new utilities: Bitstream Font Navigator, and Corel Texture (this last tool was already a part of CorelDraw 6 for the Macintosh).
CorelDraw 8 should be on the UK market by the beginning of December, Neera Panchmatia said, with localised versions in the most common European languages following a few weeks later. The UK recommended retail price will be #395, with upgrades selling for #229.
Around February 1998, Corel is expecting to launch a Macintosh version of CorelDraw 8. This will run on MacOS 8. Corel has not committed to developing software for Rhapsody, Apple?s next-generation operating system. The last CorelDraw version to come out for the Macintosh, was CorelDraw 6.
