This is an entirely new graphics newsletter and is being sent to all registered Xara customers. Each month it's going to be packed with examples, tips, tutorials, news and special offers. If you have any interest in photography, computer graphics or design then this newsletter is for you.
We hope that both new and experienced users will get something useful from each month's edition.
And remember if you don't like it, you can easily un-subscribe and you will not be sent it in future. See below.
As some of you know we're creating an open-source version of Xara Xtreme for Linux and the Mac. We've recently delivered a version 0.4 which is pretty functional. It now loads and renders all .xar files. Most tools now work, and it looks and works very like the Windows version.
In fact after using it for a few minutes it's easy to forget you are using Linux and not the latest Xara Xtreme on Windows. Having said that there are some critical missing features that prevent the product actually being useful. You can't save anything, and nor can you export bitmaps. But we hope within a few weeks both of these will be resolved.
