April 2, 2007 Austin, TX. Ashlar-Vellum announced today the release of Graphite v8. This much-anticipated release offers some excellent productivity enhancements to the user interface and the functionality of this 2D/3D wireframe drafting program on both Mac and Windows platforms.
Ashlar-Vellum president, Robert Bou, commented, “Our new software development team has done an outstanding job in a relatively short amount of time. I’m very proud of our team and what they’ve accomplished.”
Graphite v8 includes an updated user interface with new icons, resizable dialog boxes and pull down menus that can be torn off. There is also support for AutoCAD 2007 DWG/DXF, a new pen style palette, and direct, multi-sheet PDF creation with embedded source and export files. Universal Binary support for the Intel Mac and additional interface enhancements are coming in the first service pack, available free to all v8 license owners.
Ashlar-Vellum product manager, Greg Morgan, had this to say about the new release, “I find it much more productive than previous versions. A number of menu items are now icons in the tool palettes. The new eyedropper tool is a cool addition. The new DXF 2007 functionality works smoothly and the PDF export is a nice option.”
