April 02, 2008
Xara announced today a new release of Xara Xtreme and Xara Xtreme PRO, the world's fastest graphics program. But it's not only the speed
that makes Xara Xtreme so popular, as it has pioneered many of the graphics technologies used in the industry today.
Favored by many professional designers for its slick workflow, Xara Xtreme is priced to be within the reach of all computer users. It's
versatility makes it ideal for everything from graphic design tasks, DTP style documents, a wide range of photo handling tasks, website
graphics and now complete website creation.
New in this version 4 release are:
- Ultra-fast non-destructive photo editing features,10 times faster and resulting in files 10 times smaller, than other graphics tools
- Real-time, fully shaded, 3D extrude
- Multi-core support. An average of 40% faster and up to 80% faster on dual-core processors (Xtreme Pro only)
- WYSIWYG website creation. Supports free-form web page design, 'anything anywhere' and advanced features such as text flow around shapes,
mouse-over effects, pop-ups and more
- Real-time 'flow around' text repelling
- more than a dozen other new features and improvements
Charles Moir, Managing Director of Xara Group Ltd said "The truly spectacular performance of the new photo handling, plus the fact it's completely
non-destructive, moves us into new territory. The 3D extrude is simply gorgeous and, of course, faster and more slick than on any other tool.
The website creation feature has been described as a significantly useful feature by beta testers."
"Xara Xtreme was always the fastest graphics tool around, but with availability of multi--core processors, users of Xara Xtreme Pro can now take
advantage of these processors for maximum performance. And with the support of our parent company, Magix AG, we're making the product available
in multiple languages for the first time", he added.
Xara Xtreme and Xtreme Pro are probably the most powerful, versatile graphics software, at a price to suit anyone's pocket. Xara Xtreme retails
for only $89 and Xtreme Pro is only $249 (+ VAT in Europe).
