Macworld UK reports
that Corel has discontinued Mac development of its CorelDraw Graphics Suite.
The suite, whose earlier version beat some of Adobe’s own graphics application to the punch with native Mac OS X support, consists of the illustration app CorelDraw, digital imaging application Corel Photo-Paint and Corel R.A.V.E., an application suited for motion-graphics creation.
Corel CEO Derek Burney told attendees of a meeting on Wednesday that his company hasn’t experienced much demand from Mac users, and said that 96 percent of CorelDraw Graphics Suite’s users operate on Windows PCs. The news was reiterated to Macworld UK by a company communications manager, who added that the Mac response did not “warrant further development … on the Mac platform.”
Corel said it has no plans to end development of its remaining Mac products, like Corel Painter.
