IN THIS MONTH'S EDITION...
  • Following hot on the heels of Web Designer 9 we've just released Photo & Graphic Designer 9, and it's available right now on xara.com for download and purchase. We have a special introductory offer on upgrades from v8 and, unusually, a short intro offer on new copies - so if you have been considering trying Photo & Graphic Designer, seize the moment!

    We list some of the highlights of v9 below, but you can of course find full information about what's new on our website, and further detail in the release notes. Also don’t miss Gary Priester’s ‘First Look’ at the new features on the Xara Xone and remember you can always discuss the new versions in the Xara forums at TalkGraphics. You'll find links to all of these & more below.

  • But don't overlook our other news. There are new tutorials and free stuff on the Xara Xone, including a second look at Flash animation by Gary Bouton, release of the German Web Designer 9 and the last few days of an offer on the most popular MAGIX titles (in Other News).
