Net-ready Ventura out in September

Corel will ship a fully 32bit Windows 95 version of its Ventura DTP software by late August or early September, the firm said yesterday.

The product is claimed to be a bottom-up rewrite featuring the ability to publish in HTML, PDF, Envoy and Java formats, in line with the Canadian graphics software's Internet-with-everything approach.

Also new will be a revamped user interface that treats publishing pages with a project-like approach and sports a fully customisable, context-sensitive tool bar. WordPerfect 7, PhotoPaint 6, CD Creator and CorelVersions will be bundled with Ventura.
