Design software developer Archway Systems Inc. on Wednesday shipped VersaCAD 2005 for Macintosh. A company representative confirmed with MacCentral that this version of the software offers the same features as VersaCAD 2001 for Macintosh — the major changes are native support for Mac OS X and the print-to-PDF feature found in most applications published for the operating system. The representative also noted that, because the previous version only ran in Classic mode in OS X, adding printers is much easier now.
