ConceptDraw 7.6 performance, text editing improved
By Peter Cohen
CS Odessa on Thursday announced the release of ConceptDraw 7.6, an update to its vector drawing and diagramming software for Mac OS X. A free update for registered ConceptDraw 7.x users, ConceptDraw 7.6 costs $299.
ConceptDraw is suitable for creating flowcharts, network diagrams, database diagrams, floor plans and other business-related graphics. It incorporates vector-based drawing tools, maintains “smart connections” between shapes so you don’t need to redraw your diagram if you move something around, supports layers, features libraries and clip art, and has a presentation mode.
ConceptDraw 7.6 improves startup performance between 10 and 20 percent, according to CS Odessa. A new text editor is in place that supports Chines and Arabic characters, as well. A number of “under the hood” improvements have also been made.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.4 or later, G3 or better, 256MB RAM and 500MB hard disk drive. A trial version is available for download.
